Some business owners currently have more pressing challenges than just the ongoing Brexit debate that seems to be, quite rightly, uppermost in every politician’s mind, according to Mark Brocklehurst, Director of Warrington-based document management specialists the Sharples Group.
“For example, the Hanjin Shipping situation, where the South Korean based shipping firm sought bankruptcy protection earlier this month, will have a significant impact on the businesses that rely on the company to deliver their products to customers across the world,” he said.
“Like many companies we only store a certain amount of stock so immediately when we heard about the Hanjin situation, we took precautions and put in place a disaster recovery system,” he explained. “Being independent we work on alternatives meaning we can buy from different suppliers ensuring that our clients will not be affected.”
Brocklehurst argues that although the Brexit issue will have an impact on businesses, there will always be an endless range of issues for business owners to deal with. “Running a business is a challenge in itself. But, with the right experience and knowhow, most situations can be dealt with successfully. I’m sure Brexit will be the same!” he said.
