Business Updates

COVID Update

Update 5th January - LION will remain open and continue to offer a normal service during this new lockdown - while at all times being mindful of the health and wellbeing of our team. We have extensive COVID Secure measures in place throughout the warehouse and offices.

- If you are expecting a delivery but your retail frontage is closed, please put up a sign or leave your shutter partially open so that drivers know there’s someone there.

- If you want to use an alternative delivery address, please just check you’ve entered it correctly before confirming your order online.

- Please keep an eye out here and on our social media for any changes to our delivery times, but at the moment everything is operating as usual.


Update 10th July - The LION Trade Counter has been permanently closed. Re-opening the counter requires us to make complex social distancing and cleaning arrangements to maintain a COVID-Secure workplace for our team, while anticipating a much lower volume of customers coming in.

We apologise for the inconvenience however we now have no minimum value for orders placed online, and with LION Mixed Mountboard Despatch you can mix and match from a wide choice of mountboards and other sheet materials.

Update 12th June - The LION Trade Counter will remain closed for the foreseeable future. This is for the safety of customers and to ensure we provide a COVID-Secure workplace for our team.

You can order online for delivery with no minimum order, and the LION Mixed Mountboard Despatch Service now includes 800mm x 1200mm Styrene, Corri-Cor Fluted Frame Backing Board and some foam centre boards. Click here for more information.

Update 2nd April - the majority of our team are working from home with a skeleton crew keeping the order processing and despatch operational. We are taking all recommended steps and are continuing to go above and beyond with distancing and hygiene to protect the on-site team.

Update 24th March - following the latest government announcement we are closing the Trade Counter with immediate effect.

Our supply chain is starting to experience significant issues; All suppliers in Italy and Spain, which means all our moulding suppliers, are now closing production for at least two weeks as requested by their governments. Once delivery times are factored in, this means that we will not now receive any moulding deliveries for a minimum of four weeks and probably longer. Please check our website for current stock levels.

Our Area Sales Managers will not be visiting you and we will not be carrying out any installations or service calls while the advice around social distancing is in place.

You can place your order for delivery online or over the phone - if you order online there is no minimum order value. If you’ve never ordered online from us before, you can find out how to get yourself set up by watching this video:

We will post further updates as soon as we have them.

We wish all our customers and their families well in these extremely challenging times.
