Arundel-based RT Page says it is extremely proud of its performance throughout the COVID19 pandemic, which saw it supporting its community, its workforce and customers unfalteringly despite the events side of its business being halted by lockdown.
“We took no government money and we didn’t furlough any of our staff, despite our events business effectively closing for the duration of the pandemic,” says operations director Stuart Barker. “We also subcontracted work to support partner companies who normally specialised in events and would otherwise have had to close.”
The company also did substantial work delivering to the NHS at cost.
“We were also sensible to the devastating impact of lockdown on many of our customers, so we reduced rates and extended credit where necessary to support them,” says Stuart.
“RT Page and TPN both believe in support, collaboration and partnership,” he says. “That has to be reflected in your actions. We tried to live those values throughout the pandemic, and support as much of our business community as we could in practical ways.”
