Mar 29, 2020 | 3D Scanning, News

We would like to inform all of our clients that the PES Scanning and Engineering Design teams are still fully operational.

The Design Engineering team are working from home and the PES Scanning team is available to scan in the PES workshop or at our clients’ sites. We are working within the government guidelines to ensure the safety of our team and those of our clients.

We are currently prioritising projects that will support UK manufacturing to stay operational, either through quality inspection or the reverse engineering and manufacture of critical to business components.

The office telephone number is being monitored and we will return your call as soon as possible if we cannot answer it due to the increased level of traffic we are experiencing.

If you have any enquiries or wish to discuss future projects, then please call the office on 0114 321 6375, or email us at enquiries@pes-performance.com.COVID-19: Additional Risk Assessment Precautions for Scanning Operations

To ensure we can support our colleagues in the engineering and manufacturing sectors the team will continue to deliver scanning operations, at our workshop, or on site at our clients’ premises.

Our service levels will be dependent on the availability of the team, taking into account any who may be required to self-isolate and any changes in the government’s regulations.

We have updated our risk assessment process to ensure we take into account the additional working challenges and the safety of our and our clients’ teams.

We will also adhere to any additional requirements requested by the client. Our team will be available to work at any time to suit the client to minimise social contact and maximise everyone’s safety.
