Like you, we have been watching COVID-19 developments around the world closely over the past few weeks. Following the New Zealand Government’s announcement to close non-essential services for a minimum of four weeks, Furnware will discontinue manufacturing operations from our New Zealand base, as of 2pm Wednesday 25th March. We fully support our government’s move to try to stop the spread of the virus and keep our communities safe.
Caring for our people
Furnware is a family-owned business and the health and wellbeing of our team and our customers always comes first. No employees in our New Zealand, Australia and Singapore teams are affected by the virus and while we are preparing them to self-isolate, we are also putting in place systems to support them through this period.
Continuing our service
All transactions, email and phone enquiries are unaffected by this change as our administration, sales and service teams based in New Zealand, Australia and Singapore are working remotely to support customers. If you do not wish to meet with us in person, we are well placed to undertake consultations via video, including presentations and 3D renders of learning spaces.
Here to help you
We know furniture may not be front of mind right now, but if you need anything, please reach out. In the next week look out for our new podcast series featuring prominent leaders who will share their helpful and practical advice for helping school communities through disruption. Importantly, look after yourself and your families and stay connected with each other. We’ll keep in touch.
