Survey: 44 per cent of lighting industry still furloughed

A survey by the Lighting Industry Association (LIA) of its members has shown that 44 per cent of staff are currently furloughed, though only 4 per cent of employers said they had made any redundancies as a direct result of the coronavirus lock down.

Meanwhile, 89 per cent of LIA members reported that their business remained open in some form, with the most operative functions being sales (95 per cent), dispatch (90 per cent) and accounts (87 per cent).

Many companies (69 per cent) are reporting difficulties in obtaining raw materials or components with a variety of reasons down to late deliveries, shortage of shipping capacity and slow return to manufacturing capacity in China among the most common.
