Coronavirus (COVID 19)
We take our responsibility to our customers and our employees very seriously as we endeavour to reduce the risk of infection to a minimum while keeping our – and your – business operations going as smoothly as possible.
We comply strictly with the recommendations and instructions that have been issued by public authorities since mid-March (in some cases even a step ahead of them) and have implemented various measures to help contain the coronavirus (COVID-19) as best we can. We would like to take this opportunity to inform you about the current situation.
Business operationsOur production is proceeding as normal – all orders can be handled without any problems and in the usual quality. Our Sales department can be reached continuously during regular business hours.
Ability to deliverWe are profiting from our high stock levels and the long-term, predictive order management of our partners, with whom we are in close contact. All our suppliers assured us from the outset that they would do everything in their power to maintain our supply chain.
Social DistancingThere is a general ban in place on business trips by our employees. We hope you will also appreciate that we are no longer accepting visitors to our premises for the time being. We have held exclusively virtual meetings since the corona crisis began. Forwarders and carriers are requested to ensure contactless delivery and pick-up or, if this is not feasible, to wear a face mask.
