Dear customers, suppliers and partners,
at this point we would like to inform you about some measures we have taken to protect WITTE employees, their families and the company, as well as to prevent the further spread of the corona virus. The current situation requires special measures and like many other companies, this situation presents us with special challenges of an unprecedented scale.
In order to maintain our current operations, we will immediately switch to a two-shift system with two completely independent working groups. These working groups have no direct contact with each other, except by e-mail or telephone. This reduces the risk of infection and increases the availability of production. We ask for your understanding that this may cause slight delays in the processing of inquiries and orders.
Furthermore, our employees in the logistics department are required to keep their distance from persons outside the company, such as forwarding agents.
In order not to take any unnecessary risks, we have currently cancelled all unnecessary business trips. We have also cancelled appointments with external persons in our company. Social areas, such as kitchens and canteens, will remain closed for the time being to avoid crowds of people.
We will do everything in our power to ensure that even in this difficult situation, our customers always receive the best and most reliable service from us, as well as the appropriate advice. Our sales team will be available as usual, as well as our colleagues from the project planning department, who will take care of the smooth handling and communication between WITTE and our customers. Currently there is no delay in the production of current orders and we expect this to continue in the coming weeks. This is of course dependent on the maintenance of the supply chains.
Operations in our branches in the USA, China and Malaysia are also continuing. However, taking into account special and more stringent safety and hygiene measures.
Please take care of yourself and your fellow men and observe the corresponding hygiene regulations. Help to contain the spread of Covid-19.
