In relation to RME’s manufacturing operations, there are currently no national or local restrictions restricting the production of RME Mill Relining Systems at our manufacturing headquarters in Australia. RME’s manufacturing facility is located in Toowoomba, Queensland, providing a politically-secure and stable environment for all works.
RME’s physical security measures are robust, with fully-fenced facilities protected by private security patrols and monitoring systems. All RME personnel have secure access to these facilities, and comply with RME policies regarding access to our facilities, security and Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) protocols.
Thus far, RME’s manufacturing services have been considered to be an essential service, allowing us to operate without restriction. In the event of a manufacturing shutdown, RME has robust contingency plans in place as well as measures to ensure a rapid start-up response once the shutdown is lifted.
To date, Australia has been very successful in its efforts to slow the spread and suppress the COVID-19 disease. However, as we have seen overseas, this is a fluid situation and RME’s operations remain subject to State and Federal Government responses, should community transmission of COVID-19 re-escalate. We will advise our Customers of any changes to our manufacturing operations as soon as they occur.
