We are all extremely concerned in respect to the completely unjustifiable and tragic events that have been occurring in Ukraine. The impact of this situation on a huge number of people across Europe and further afield is immeasurable and we pledge our support as far as is possible at this time. Our thoughts are also with our Ukrainian staff and others who are directly affected by this crisis.

James Jones & Sons has ceased any purchasing from Russia or Belarus and will maintain this position until clarification in respect of this crisis is clear.

The company is making a substantial donation to the Disaster Emergency Committee - Ukrainian Humanitarian Appeal and will continue to seek further opportunities to widen this support in the coming weeks.
