How does BYK-Gardner cope with the impact of COVID-19?

 

We take the current trends fueled by this virus very seriously and assign top priority to the health of our employees and to our supply reliability. As a response to the rapid spread of the coronavirus worldwide, BYK has redoubled its efforts at its crisis management center, drawn up pandemic plans, and implemented extensive protective measures. Further plans are being drawn up depending on specific situations. We already converted to a 2-shift process which provides the highest level of workplace safety for our employees in production and improves our operation capability also with a potentially reduced production staff. In other areas we intensify mobile work from home as much as possible to provide continued support to our customers.

 

With respect to supply reliability we are as a supplier of electronic testing instrumentation with a global supply chain of course affected by the current circumstances. Although our Chinese suppliers have restarted their business activities, other suppliers in other parts of the world are now more and more impacted by the COVID-19 situation. Furthermore, there is a global shortage in freight capacities by sea as well as by air. All these restrictions are beyond our control. Please be assured that our focus is to ensure that we can maintain our global supply chain to minimize delivery delays.

 

At this point, we are able to ship the majority of our products with a delivery time of 4 weeks. Based on our inventory level and incoming order situation we will be able to keep this schedule through September 2020. If the situation changes, we will inform you immediately.
