Peter Caplehorn, CPA Chief Executive, said: “We are encouraged that the government has recognised the need for all of the construction industry, including the manufacturers and suppliers of products, to remain open for business and continue supporting projects up and down the country. These projects will range from critical infrastructure to home repairs, and will be key to enabling the wider economy and individual livelihoods through this difficult period. All the while, ensuring that these activities are done safely, from the factory floor to the site. The CPA will continue of course to work with its members to provide the expertise and resources necessary for our industry to navigate this latest challenge.”
