Updates on COVID-19

Update as of Wednesday, 25 March 2020 

Final close out of Vidak premises is being completed today.

We are successfully up and running from our homes, able to help with what you need, so please keep in touch with us and keep us busy.

Planning is in place for the assumed reduction from Alert Level 4 in April and ensuring business continuity and delivery when we are able.

We have been building an online Vidak community with MS Team and are staying connected throughout the day and setting daily tasks to work on.

Many of our people are happy to have some time to get on top of their outstanding work and projects at this time and start new ones.

So proud of our people and what they are doing at this time!


Update as of Monday, 23 March 2020 

All staff are heading home for self-isolation supporting the New Zealand Government's initiatives to control the spread of the pandemic.

Work from home measures are all in place.

Factory and Despatch has been shut from Monday 23rd.

We have started implementing virtual connection and collaboration so our people stay connected with the greater Vidak family over the isolation period and ensure we support one another.

Directors and Senior Managers will be communicating with all staff and key customers over the coming weeks as we learn how COVID-19 and Alert Level 4 affects everyone, so we can assist during the isolation periods and are ready to hit the ground running when we are able to.

 We wish everyone all the best as you navigate through the next steps in a world that has changed very rapidly.




Update as of Monday, 16 March 2020 

Dear clients and partners,

With the rapid spread of COVID-19, our focus has been on ensuring we are focusing on the wellbeing of our people, business and communities. We are following all recommendations from the New Zealand Government including the Ministry of Health, and communicating with our people about our policies and expectations in relation to it. We are also communicating this to our subcontractors who are working on your sites for us.

We have suspended all international business travel as of last week.

There is no disruption to our operations, and all our teams are up and running as per normal. Our management and supply chain team has been ensuring we have stock parts and products to deliver on committed projects and on our forecasted normal demand.

If required we have plans in place should our staff need to work from home for various reasons. We have a number that can and do, and we are working on ensuring others are able to should they be required.

We are being vigilant, but at the same time are continuing with business improvement and innovation as we would under normal circumstances.

How can you help us:

  • Please let us know if there are any restrictions or additional procedures required to visit, attend or work on your sites.
  • Keep us up to date with your current and future needs so we can help plan for them.

This is an extraordinary situation that we have never had to deal with before, and we are conscious of making the right decisions.

We appreciate your partnership and ongoing understanding through this difficult time.

Thank you and stay healthy,

Jono Vidak – Sales Director
