Coronavirus COVID-19


At Nylacast we understand the trust you place in us to provide you with our value adding materials technology and engineered products. We wanted to update you on our response to the current coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

We are continuously monitoring the situation and taking the latest advice as issued from the UK Government and World Health Organisation (WHO). The health and wellbeing of our employees, customers, partners and supply chain is our paramount priority and we will continue to take the recommended preventative and containment actions.


Nylacast has zero cases of colleagues affected by coronavirus. We are encouraging regular hand washing, and the use of hand sanitiser and our housekeeping teams are focusing on cleaning ‘high traffic’ areas more frequently.
All of our sites are operating a restricted visitor policy. We have also restricted all business travel and have established quarantine procedures for individuals travelling back to the UK.
We are providing resources to help employees modify how they work, including flexible schedules for caregivers, remote work where possible and adjusted working hours and office layouts to reduce the number of people on site at any given time.  Our teams are completing daily checks to help identify any symptoms of illness, this includes temperature checks using thermal cameras.
To ensure the welfare of all employees, Nylacast’s occupational health team is closely advising those who may be at greater risk from coronavirus and instructing them to stay home and consult their healthcare providers if they feel ill.


Normal business operations will continue across all Nylacast sites, unless advised otherwise. At present we see no changes to our business and services. There is zero impact to our production and delivery schedules and we continue to use virtual technology instead of face to face meetings.
Whilst we continue to work to customer requirements we are open to the discussion of greater safety stocks should our customers require this.
There are natural concerns surrounding the ongoing supply of products and services from our supply chain, Nylacast are in constant dialogue to ensure there is continuity of supply with no disruption over the coming months. We, and they, are closely monitoring developments and Foreign Office advice on travel and distribution.


We are closely monitoring the developments of coronavirus (COVID-19) and responding on a day to day basis. At Nylacast the health and safety of our teams, customers and supply chain is our paramount priority. Some of the precautions we have put in place are detailed here.

In addition to this and in line with Government recommendations, effective of today, Friday 20th March, Nylacast’s Pennsylvania, USA facility will be closed until further notice. All non-life-sustaining businesses in the state have closed physical locations in aid of slowing the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

Our World Headquarters in Leicester, UK, remains open for as long as possible and as recommended by UK Government and the World Health Organisation (WHO). Our team can be contacted on +44 (0) 116 276 8558 or info@nylacast.com

During these unprecedented times we wish all of our colleagues, customers and family’s good health and look forward to continuing to support you through this endeavour and beyond.
