On 31 December 2020, the relationship between the United Kingdom and the European Union will change. Whilst there is still some uncertainty as to the outcome of the UK’s exit from the EU, we believe that our preparations to date, the geographic footprint of Westcon-Comstor in the EU including the presence of major logistics hubs in both the Netherlands and the UK, and our reliance on a single SAP-based operational system equips us well to deal with the potential outcomes.
We have undertaken extensive planning and implemented those changes to our business structure and supporting systems necessary at this time. However, given the current uncertainty, it may be necessary to implement further specific measures in the near future. As the circumstances progress, we will, where relevant, monitor those customer orders which may be impacted at the time of Brexit, and will address any issues accordingly and as promptly as possible.
