COVID-19 | UPDATE
3rd June 2020
In line with UK Government advice, we have now reopened our Head Office and we have small teams working in each of our departments ensuring we follow the social distancing guidelines and HSE advice. We also have a number of staff who are homeworking. As the next couple of weeks progress we will be looking to increase our office-based staff whilst maintaining adherence to current government guidelines.
What we can do:
We recognise that your attention will rightly be focused at this time on the people, your staff and your loved ones. Whilst the selling of your business may not be at the forefront of your mind, we want you to know that we’re here in the background when you do need us.
Bruce & Co have marketed all of our businesses for sale during the lockdown period and dealt proactively with all enquiries. Over the coming weeks we will be significantly increasing our activity levels as the UK returns to a level of normality and in the last few weeks we have seen a marked increase in buyer enquiries.
You can rest assured that we will continue marketing our business sale opportunities and deal with buyer enquiries as they arise. We will be in touch to advise you of any interest received and, mindful of social distancing, discuss how best to engage with any interested parties.
During lockdown we have been exploring ways in which we can assist our clients improve their profitability or to generate cash. If you would be interested in finding out more about how we could potentially save you money then please feel free to contact us.
Whilst this method of working may mean it’s not your usual broker that you speak with, it does mean we can ensure business continuity for you at all times. We’ll endeavour to stay in touch proactively, but we understand that right now you might prefer to contact us when it suits you rather than when it suits us. Whichever is right for you, we’ll be available when you need us and you can contact us on our usual number – 01772 775 758 for buying and 07812 366958 for selling, or via your usual email contact address.
We know this is a tough time for all of us. Once this is over, we’ll work closely with you to return to normal as quickly as possible.
May we extend our best wishes to you at this very difficult time for all.
