Charvet UK is issuing a statement reassuring Charvet users, distributors, kitchen houses and consultants that the company continues to run as usual.

“The Charvet factory at Charavines in France continues to run and is supplying spare parts and manufacturing our heavy-duty cooking as normal,” says Charvet UK MD Wayne Cuomo.

“However, we do not know what further restrictions the French government will place upon the workplace, so like everyone else, we await developments.

“The spare parts operation continues to run as usual from the Charvet UK office. We have taken the opportunity to stock up on the most requested parts and, even in the event of factory closures, we understand the spares operation will continue to function.

“While this situation is unfortunate, we will continue to work hard on behalf of Charvet and our customers.

“Charvet’s UK office continues to remain open for distributor and customer enquiries and, as usual, the Charvet UK team of sales advisors who already work remotely, will continue their customer support via the phone and email.”
