Remain or leave? The rubber box stance

This month, Britain faces probably one of its biggest decisions in decades – whether to remain in the EU or leave. We’ve all heard the for and against arguments by now, with some politicians accused of scaremongering, some being hailed as buffoons, and some making statements that can only be described as ludicrous. But how will the result impact some of our day-to-day activities in the world of Rubber Boxes and distros?

The EU vote – How will it affect Rubber Box?

Here at Rubber Box, we wanted to cover some of the hot topics to show you, our customers, if and how the result will affect our business.

1. Will Rubber Box still comply with British and European standards if we…

Remain? – Yes, things will stay as they are now.

Leave? – Yes. These regulations are already in place and are unlikely to change either way.

2. Will Rubber Box still be able to source European components if we…

Remain? – Yes, things will stay as they are now.

Leave? – Yes, certainly for the moment anyway. The trade deals that are in place now will not be scrapped overnight. We are told that it could take up to 10 years to renegotiate those deals. During this time, Europe will not stop dealing with the UK while they wait for new legislation to be put in place.

3. Will Rubber Box still be able to sell into Europe if we…

Remain? – Yes things will stay as they are now.

Leave? – Yes, same as above. While there may be changes in the future, this certainly shouldn’t be during the next 10 years or so.

4. Will Rubber Box still be able to export to countries that are not part of the EU if we…

Remain? – Yes, things will stay as they are now.

Leave? – Yes. We currently export to over 40 countries that are non-EU members. These countries will continue to trade with us whether EU trade deals are there or not.

5. Will Rubber Box still be able to recruit the right skills needed for its workforce if we…

Remain? – Yes, things will stay as they are now.

Leave? – Yes, the UK still leads the way in terms of producing skilled workers. We don’t need to rely on any other countries for this.

While there are obviously many other issues to take into account when voting, such as price hikes in housing, food, fuel, immigration and boarder control, and unemployment rates, our business will be operating in much the same way.

We, at Rubber Box, just want to assure every one of our customers that whatever happens on the 23rd, Rubber Box will Remain even if the majority vote to Leave.
