Grafton Group Provides Update

Woodies DIY

Grafton Group plc, the international distributor of building materials and DIY retailing Group, is today providing a further Covid-19 update following an announcement by the Irish Government of new restrictions to slow the spread of the Covid-19 virus including the closure of non-essential businesses for a two-week period with effect from midnight on Friday 27 March 2020.

This development has led to the closure of the Woodie's DIY, Home and Garden business and to a significant scaling down of the operations of the distribution business in the Republic of Ireland which will only supply materials on a delivery-only basis to essential health projects, critical road and utility infrastructure and emergency supplies to businesses and homes in line with the new public health guidelines.  

Our primary concern at this time is the health and wellbeing of our colleagues, customers, business partners and the communities where we operate, and we will continue to monitor and respond as appropriate to the advice of Governments and health authorities in each of our markets.
