Coronavirus Support and Guidance

The UK Gasket & Sealing Association is committed to supporting our members through the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic; we will not see the real effects on industry for many months to come. Members have been forced to review their business continuity procedures with increasing numbers of office based staff and sales teams working from home to facilitate business as usual. We hope that our Members are able to continue to trade for as long as possible and until such time as the UK Government initiate further lock-down procedures.

We are proud that a number of our Members are supporting the fight against COVID-19 by supplying materials and components to their customers as part of the supply chain to help with the manufacture of PPE and ventilators.

This page provides a range of links to useful resources that may be of benefit to our members.
