Information about the existing situation (Covid-19)
In light of the global impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19), we would like to update customers and sales partners on the status of our operations and the steps we have taken to ensure business continuity for our customers.
It goes without saying that, in the current environment, the health and safety of our employees, customers and partners are paramount. We have updated our Pandemic Response Plan based on guidance from the World Health Organization. As such, we have suspended international employee travel. In addition we have instructed employees to leverage technology and conduct internal and external meetings virtually as much as possible. We have also asked employees in all locations to work from home as a precaution. Our systems are largely accessible remotely and thus processes can be managed accordingly.
Our factories have established measures as recommended by World Health Organisation (WHO) to prevent infections to the extent reasonably possible. We have implemented social distancing in the production and warehouse facilities, keeping a minimum spacing of 6 feet. We are also monitoring the status of material supply and at logistics partners on an ongoing basis. We have the following status in our manufacturing locations:
Rohrdorf/ Germany: No restrictions; very few suspicious cases isolated
Caponago/ Italy: Authorities mandated shutdown from March 25. Manufacturing/ assembly reopen without restrictions March 30.
Timisoara/ Romania: No restrictions
White City/ USA: No restrictions
Logistics capacity continues to be available, but delays may occur. We have withdrawn personnel from certain international construction sites but continue to support domestic installations in alignment with the customers.
This is an unprecedented time for everyone, and the situation is changing daily. We are committed to maintaining our business operations and ensuring you continue to receive the highest quality service without disruption. As an esteemed partner of KATHREIN Broadcast, we however ask for your understanding in case despite all efforts delays are unavoidable. We are working to ensure proactive communication.
