AVMI is closely monitoring the status of the Coronavirus pandemic and the continued impact this is having on our business and customers.

We continue to implement measures to enable us to support essential services whilst putting our duty of care to protect employees at the centre of activities, and we continue to provide remote support to all our customers worldwide.

Subsequent to directives by Governments in locations where AVMI operates, we have taken the following actions, to adhere to the requirements for restrictions on movement, social distancing and to ensure the safety of our customers and staff.

  • Across all locations, most of our staff are working from home and supporting our customers and suppliers.
  • Site work for Projects and Service is managed in line with each location’s government’s directions and individual requirements and restrictions of our customers.
  • We have stopped any of our employees’ international business travel.

To help reduce the risk of spreading the virus, our staff will continue to follow key local Government and health organisation instructions and guidelines on infection and prevention as detailed at:

UK Government response

UK NHS guidelines

Hong Kong Government response

Hong Kong CHP guidelines

US CDC guidelines

India Government response

World Health Organisation advice


We continue to work with our customers and suppliers, with our Sales, Design, Planning, Accounts and Service Support Desk fully operational.
