More About Us



Due to the unfolding situation with the Coronavirus, we have taken the decision to temporarily reduce the manning at Purdie Dished Ends from today, 27th March, until 17th April when we will review the situation. We have taken this decision rather than close completely, as a number of our clients are supplying vital equipment to the fight against the COVID-19.

Our primary focus is the health and wellbeing of all our workforce, to provide support to our clients and protect the long term sustainability of our business. So for this period we have reduced the number of on-site admin, accounting, sales and production staff to allow safe distance working.

The action we have taken falls in line with government guidelines and we feel is an appropriate response to the levels of risk we face at the current time. This situation will be reviewed on a weekly basis.

During this period of reduced capacity we will need the patience and understanding of our clients. Our team are working hard to answer emails, telephones and produce dished ends but inevitably with reduced staffing there may well be delays.

We would like to thank you for your support. Please take care of yourselves, your loved ones and your communities, and we will keep you informed as the situation develops.

Best wishes,

Clive Anderson
Managing Director
