Automotive Glass Europe partners are working hard to deliver essential automotive glazing services to customers across twenty-two European countries plus Canada, Morocco and South Africa. We recognise that we have a very important role in keeping emergency services and essential businesses operating, so we will continue to do everything we can to support these heroes throughout the Coronvirus pandemic.
We have already seen a drop in demand for our services of almost 75% in most countries, with side glass and rear window replacement currently accounting for the majority of work required. Our staff levels at workshop locations and for mobile services have been adjusted accordingly and we currently expect this situation to be maintained until the end of June. We are optimistic that the level of vehicle usage will begin to increase in July and we will be monitoring this very closely so that we can react immediately to any change in demand.
Our first priority remains the safety of our staff and customers. All social distancing and safe working practice guidance is being strictly adhered to by our staff in each country in which we operate. We are extremely proud of our people delivering these services in such difficult circumstance and offer our heartfelt gratitude to our technicians, contact center, distribution and logistics specialists, who are making this possible.
We continue to be at your service.
