Update concerning COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) March 21, 2020
At PBE, health and safety is our primary concern. From a business perspective, our aim is to continue our operations as normal and provide the same levels of service and support our customers expect whilst keeping our employees safe.
Due to the pandemic and its effect on PBE’s business globally, we will however, be making some changes to our working practices to protect our employees. We believe these changes will have minimal impact on our customers, however we feel transparency is appropriate.
PBE is temporarily closing some of our global offices in line with Government advice, including London (UK), Toronto, ON (Canada) and our Malaysian offices. We are also altering our working practices at our facilities in United States, Canadian and Australian facilities in order to protect our employees’ health while ensuring we can continue to meet the needs of our customers.
PBE’s products are critical to the health and safety of our miners and construction workers. As such, PBE has a responsibility to ensure that we maintain a healthy staff force that can provide the required safety equipment and power solutions to keep the mines, utilities, and construction projects operating safely and productively during this difficult period.
Like all businesses, we will monitor the global picture and keep all our customers informed in this time of unprecedented uncertainty. We wish you all well and thank you for your understanding.

Chief Executive Officer
