Latest information on Fujifilm UK’s management of COVID-19 / Coronavirus outbreak

News and updates from the Fujifilm UK team on managing the outbreak and accelerating spread of COVID-19 / Coronavirus. 

The coronavirus epidemic is a unique situation – and as this continues to evolve, the health of Fujifilm employees, partners and customers is our primary concern. Additionally, ensuring business continuity is also a key priority.

Fujifilm’s approach to managing this situation is being co-ordinated locally in the UK, as well as regionally and globally, and we are closely monitoring, following and building upon recommendations from the World Health Organization and relevant national advice, from the NHS and the Department of Health.

Ensuring business continuity 

Ensuring business continuity to take care of our customers is a key priority and measures taken by Fujifilm include (but are not limited to):

  • implementing our Business Continuity plan
  • developing a Business Recovery plan
  • working from home where possible – with approximately 90% of our workforce now working from home
  • where essential work is required, instilling proper hygiene protocols and social distancing measures across all of our sites – and when off site
  • adopting any new international and national travel restrictions
  • prohibiting the attendance and participation in trade shows and events
  • directing employees who display any of the Coronavirus symptoms to report this to us and follow any recommendations by qualified healthcare professionals

Ensuring business continuity and customer’s safety

The entire global supply chain has been impacted due to the Coronavirus outbreak, which has led to large-scale disruption in both manufacturing and shipping. Contingency plans are in place for both production and logistics. We are taking active measures to limit this impact and we are in daily contact with our logistics partners. However, considering Fujifilm’s diversified business portfolio, the supply chain impact will vary on a business-by-business basis.

Supporting the UK’s healthcare crisis

Fujifilm’s transformation, from producer of analogue photo film to a diversified company with a focus in the healthcare sector, enables the company to support the health of people around the world. Our Medical Systems business exists to serve doctors and patients and to help save lives during this epidemic. In this context, we are doing our very best to keep delivery, installations and service as steady as possible.
