How French companies are also being hit hard by Brexit

Jean-Marc Barki, chief executive of French manufacturer Sealock, anticipated Brexit would disrupt his business. But the scale of the problem only hit home when one of his trucks got stuck in the UK for seven weeks. “We went from a system of pure fluidity to a really complex one,” said Barki, whose company relies heavily on the import of a UK made synthetic component to produce its industrial adhesive. He subsequently discovered that the paperwork required to import it to the EU’s single market from Britain was missing some crucial details. “Those kinds of delays are unthinkable for a midsize company like us,” he said. If the problems do not ease soon, he added, he will have to consider changing his product’s formula to include ingredients from Germany or Italy rather than the UK.
