Coronavirus - Supply Update

Scotland Excel and Brakes statement on demand and supply of products in response to the current Coronavirus situation.

Hand sanitiser

Scotland Excel and key supplier, Brakes would like to make customers aware of changes to buying patterns that are beginning to emerge on Scotland Excel frameworks.

Brakes appreciate that all councils wish to ensure continuous supply, particularly for schools and care homes, but are unable to ring fence stock for individual councils to ensure that supplies are available for all council areas. 

A statement from Brakes on their actions and customer arrangements during the Coronavirus outbreak is available to download.

Scotland Excel is aware that there is a national shortage of cleaning products including hand sanitisers, and is working with suppliers to identify additional channels of supply. In addition to Scotland Excel’s janitorial products framework, cleaning products can be sourced through educational suppliers and the Scotland Excel catering sundries framework.

Scotland Excel is in daily contact with key suppliers.  This website will be updated over the weekend if any further information becomes available regarding the supply of products through the Scotland Excel frameworks.
