New Zealand has now entered the mandatory 1 month lockdown period and as a result most business activities are suspended around the country. For the most
part this includes the Porter Group’s operations around New Zealand, however we are a provider of critical services to companies that are deemed to
be essential services within the government guidelines. These include primary industries and food production, transport & logistics and building
In many cases we have prepared and enabled our team members to work from isolation and they will be available and contactable throughout the lockdown period. We have done this to ensure that our customers on the frontline who are directly involved in the delivery of essential services can benefit from a normal supply of support services. If your business is authorised to continue to deliver essential services, and you require any of the Porter Groups’ normal services, then you will be able to contact any of our divisions through the normal channels. Parts and Mechanical Service, Machine Rental, Transport and even Machine Sales will be available country wide to support essential services only.
On location, our parts and field service teams will be operational, albeit in a reduced capacity to minimise the risk of exposure and transmission of the virus. To assist us in continuing to provide these critical services, and to ensure the health and safety of our team members, please ensure that your business is operating within the guidelines of the lockdown when requesting service from the Porter Group.
The health and safety of our staff and customers is absolute priority and our team members will be operating within the strict physical contact and sanitation guidelines as prescribed by the ministry. We request that our customers assist in this regard and adhere to these guidelines when dealing with any of our staff.
Even within the lockdown period, the situation will continue to evolve and develop, and we will monitor and comply with the government directives accordingly. At the Porter Group we aim to do our part in containing and controlling Covid-19 to reduce the harm done to our country and its people.
Stay safe and take care.
