BREXIT STATEMENT

As the date of UK’s withdrawal from the EU is rapidly approaching there still remains real uncertainty as to the definitive outcome and shape of the Brexit deal (until the 31st of December 2020)

We, as Lucite International Alpha B.V. and in particular our Brexit team have been preparing ourselves for the worst-case scenario of a “No-deal Brexit” with a no free trade agreement between the EU and UK from the 31st of December 2020.

We have been focussing on key areas including but not limited to changes in tariffs, regulatory frameworks, customs borders, and logistics & supply chain for raw materials and finished product. This approach enables us to anticipate and adapt ourselves to any potential Brexit-deal.  

Despite the political uncertainty, we can promise that we are confident we have prepared  thoroughly so that the effects of a “No-Deal Brexit” scenario should be minimal, and we intent to maintain our high level of customer service and support that you have come to expect from Lucite International Alpha B.V.
