Update on Drive-Rite Operations due to governmental action arising from the Coronavirus.

Dear Customer, Supplier, Partner and Colleague, 

In the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, we are constantly reviewing the situation regarding COVID-19 in line with local and national government, public health and WHO guidelines, and our strategy is based on this advice. The health and safety of our staff, customers, suppliers and communities in which we work, remains our priority and we, at Drive-Rite and AMK, take the Coronavirus pandemic very seriously. We continue to monitor developments as they evolve and will take the appropriate steps.


The latest local news is that the Irish Government have asked people to stay at home in all circumstances, except in a specific set of cases including to travel to and from work where the work is considered an essential service.  As you are aware, some parts of our product portfolio are considered an essential Product and of service where used in WAV, Ambulance, Fire and Rescue Vehicles which all are aiding the battle against this deadly virus.


Based on the most recent advice and instruction from the Irish Government and Public Health guidelines we are closing operations in Dublin from Friday 3rd April up to Monday 20th April. We have prioritized any orders that are deemed essential Product and are dispatching those before close of day tomorrow.


We have taken measures to allow some of our staff to work remotely where possible and they will be contactable and working as best as possible during this time to assist our partners.

Therefore please be assured that we will try to maintain service throughout this time although our normal operations and duties will be impacted, while we adhere to government and health regulations. Drive-Rite and AMK are taking all reasonable measures to minimize this impact to Customers and Suppliers. We are striving to resume performance as quickly as possible and will keep you informed.


Management continues to monitor the impact daily. Our team will provide updates either by email or phone to all customers and global partners. For any queries or further details please send an email to the relevant contact details below:
