News - Continuity in Action

In late 2011, Courtney-New were in Thailand seeing first hand “real” business continuity in action. Following the extensive flooding in October 2011 hundreds of companies, including many well known brand manufacturers, experienced flood waters up to 3 metres deep for as long as two months. Supply chains were impacted significantly for some companies but it was amazing to see how many seriously affected sites were marshalling huge teams of workers to clear debris, remove silt and clean-up, then stabilise the environment and equipment to prevent further damage and corrosion. Although many precision machines had to be replaced there was a significant amount of equipment which could be restored effectively and it was clear that every effort was being made to get back up and running as soon as possible. This type of experience forms the bedrock  for the Courtney-New approach to Business Continuity.
