Brexit Statement

On Thursday 23 June 2016 Britain voted to leave the EU.

Whilst external change occurs that we cannot control, the foundation on which Spearhead is built remains unchanged and will continue to be at the heart of everything we do. This includes:

  • Our people
  • Our commitment to you as our client
  • Our customer care and support that we provide
  • The quality of our products and services

Today we live in an interconnected world where products and business transactions occur across continents and time zones with ease. The reality is that a large amount of everyday products are not produced in the UK but sourced from around the world and purchased in foreign currency.

The majority of imported goods are paid for in either Dollars or Euros. As a result of Brexit the British Pound has weakened significantly, meaning that buying prices for goods purchased in these currencies have increased – in some instances by over 20%.

Along with this, the situation in regards to disposable vinyl gloves (one of our primary product lines) is further exacerbated by a worldwide shortage of raw material which for the foreseeable future will affect prices as much, or more so, than Brexit.

Over the coming weeks and months our prices will change on certain product ranges to reflect the weakening of the GBP and other external influencing factors. Spearhead will be absorbing increases as much as possible but some changes are necessary to ensure that we can continue to provide the same level of commitment, support and quality product that you deserve and expect.

At Spearhead we are looking positively to the future and would like to thank you for choosing us as your preferred supply partner. We look forward to continuing our great relationship!
