UPDATE APR 23, 2020: INFORMATION ON THE IMPACT OF THE CORONA VIRUS
The Coronavirus has dramatically affected all of us. We want to reassure you that the health and safety of everybody inside and outside SAERTEX have the highest priority for us. Here is an update you on our business activities as they stand today, APR 23, 2020:
- As SAERTEX maintains a global supply chain with mostly regional sourcing of raw materials for our 15 production facilities on 5 continents, we are currently still able to supply our customers:
1.) 12 out of 15 plants are in operation with almost no reduction in delivery performance due to the pandemic.
2.) Only our plants in India and South Africa are still closed to comply with lockdown regulations of local governments. Our specialty components plant in Stade, Germany is currently closed.
- Our task force in place has implemented preventive measures in the companies of the SAERTEX group including social distancing, additional hygiene measures and also an awareness campaign. Administration processes have been properly transferred to maintain customer services from home office. We will organize a selected return to the offices step by step from next week on.
- The production teams show highest commitment keep our machines running for you. The supply of raw materials is also still causing no issues.
Should there occur any bottlenecks, we will try to keep them to a minimum by taking appropriate measures and will inform you at short notice via our sales teams.
