To Whom it may concern
The Corona Virus outbreak has triggered a number of emergency measures across China, though the Epicenter is only in the Wuhan / Hubei region. Due to this, most parts of China have extended holidays till Feb. 10th, 2020, some places even until Feb. 16th, 2020 as a precautionary measure.
Due to this we expect some delays for our supplies from China, mainly due to port congestions, terminal closures and other delays because of lacking manpower.
Such delays will not affect our production and ability to supply our end products, provided the outbreak control mechanisms do not lead into further closures or long lasting delays. We are closely monitoring the situation and are in contact with our suppliers in China. Right now we have no indications of further delays.
Please be also assured that we have multi locational approved sources other than from China origin for our key raw and starting materials. Even here we are in touch with our suppliers in order to permanently check whether our sources outside of China face and issues in their supply chain.
In case of any changes or supply issues due to further unexpected measures in China we will proactively inform you.
