Product Supplies From Zygology After Brexit

The proposed exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union is due to take place on the 29th of March 2019. As yet agreement has not been reached regarding how the UK will trade with the remaining EU after this time. Understandably this is beginning to concern some of our customers, who are beginning to think about the continued supply of parts  if an agreement is not reached before we leave.
We, and our primary suppliers, are already planning for post Brexit and strategies are being put in place to ensure that there is minimal disruption to supplies.

Our Suppliers

Southco and Stanley Engineered Fasteners (POP Avdel) have manufacturing facilities in the UK. Supply from these locations should not be affected. In the case of Stanley most parts are currently distributed from the EU, but this arrangement could easily be revised if necessary.
Both Southco and Stanley also have manufacturing locations based outside of the EU. Supplies from these locations should be unaffected by Brexit.

Penn Engineering (PEM)
Most parts supplied into the UK are manufactured in Galway, Ireland. Currently we see no reason why this should not continue. However, PENN also has other manufacturing locations outside of the EU. Should the supply of parts be temporarily suspended we can obtain supplies of parts directly from these locations to prevent any break in supply.

Tesa has a distribution centre in the UK, and we do not anticipate any long term issues with supply.

ProGrip Rivet Nuts
These are supplied from outside of the EU and we do not anticipate any changes in the supply of these parts.

One area where we have no control, and cannot predict the future, is the UK’s future trading terms with the EU. There is the distinct possibility that whatever happens there will be some change in the terms under which we trade with the EU. This may have an effect on the level of pricing we may be able to offer. As such we can offer no confirmation at this time that we will be able to maintain pricing at the current levels for new orders after the end of March next year.
Where customers have firm orders against known requirements we will take every step possible to ensure that we continue to supply any order balances at the agreed pricing.

Things may change rapidly over the coming weeks and months and we will endeavour to update this page as required to reflect the current situation, so please continue to visit for the most current information.
