    Sourcing Plaster....

    I think you’ve misread it, it says at 100% production, more than before lockdown. It means production is at 100% and producing more than before lockdown

    Sourcing Plaster....

    Latest update, powder is at 100%, more than before the lockdown and more than last year at this time. Hopefully the folk buying it up and selling it for profit get the just desserts and you lot can get back to work. https://www.british-gypsum.com/about-us/coronavirus

    Plaster situation/goverment support!

    If competitors did exist they would have been in the same position as BG. How could the current situation have been avoided? Even if the production had been maintained, the merchants closed their doors, so nowhere to hold stock, and that’s if it could be done without putting people’s lives at risk.

    Plaster situation/goverment support!

    Can somebody, anybody please explain or give me 1 single reason why BG wouldn’t fill every single shelf in all the merchants throughout the country if they could in the next day, week or month.

    ***UPDATE - BRITISH GYPSUM Q&A***

    Far from it, I used that because none can be answered with 100% accuracy. I wouldn’t like to guess how many merchants are out there and if they said the 15th May for example some would have it before, some on the actual and some after. I have advised that deliveries will start mid May. If trying...

    Live Q&A with British Gypsum, Friday 1 May

    TBH Andy they got so little interest and the fact that questions were being asked this afternoon that the decision was made to reply to all of them next week. Do it just the once instead of revisiting it, in all fairness they have got quite a big job on at the moment. In my personal opinion I...

    Live Q&A with British Gypsum, Friday 1 May

    Nothing wrong with that question, it’s on a lot of people’s minds. I’m not going to say that they will be able to give you a concrete answer or a specific date but at least you’ll have more of an idea and be able to plan accordingly.

    You promised me that video was only for our eyes only...... I feel cheated on now. Get voting folks for how you want the Q&A session to happen, lead to believe not many had voted earlier. It’s your chance to ask your questions and get direct answers instead of listening to rumours.

    BG don’t know what stock the merchants are holding.

    @British Gypsum!!!

    @zombie The best place to ask these questions is the British Gypsum Facebook page. That page is being monitored and they should get back to you but I’d say only during office hours. Hope that helps

    Like I said I wouldn’t want to go to hospital. Surely your scared @Danny I’d be bloody terrified going in for that procedure. On a serious note wishing you and your growing family all the best.

    Whos currently working???

    Got to say I really wouldn’t want to go to work even in an empty house. Any accidents are capable of meaning a trip to the hospital and I can’t think of any place I’d rather not visit in the current situation. Stay safe people

    Estimate on Cost to Plaster a 3 Bed-Semi

    A 2mm coat of skimming may well make the walls look nice till one of the kids falls out with you and slams the door, then you could have a good looking carpet. If the walls are blown, for your own sake bite the bullet.

    British Gypsum Corona Virus

    No offence taken at all. They are taking orders but limiting the merchants to their average amount over the last 3 months. It’s to make sure the materials are available everywhere

    British Gypsum Corona Virus

    It means that they will receive materials based on what they have previously ordered. The only reason for introducing this is due to a shortage of staff due to self isolation

    Yes mate but only on a limited scale based on what merchants have previously had due to staff self isolating etc. All canteens etc are shut so the safe distance is kept between staff.
