Corona virus (SARS-CoV-2)
we continue to receive enquiries about supply chain security due to the coronavirus. In this regard, we can report that most of our Chinese suppliers are again able to manufacture without restrictions, with a few suppliers there are smaller restrictions.
We are also in close and continuous contact with our suppliers in Europe. Here too, a majority of our suppliers can produce again, but some suppliers are still working at 50% of their actual capacity.
Of course, we continue to monitor developments very closely in order to be able to switch procurement sources at short notice if necessary.
In addition, transport times are still being extended. For goods from China, this is mainly due to the fact that there are still too few containers in circulation. For goods from Europe due to the longer waiting times caused by border controls.
Should there be any changes in the delivery situation, we will inform you.
Irrespective of this, Keller & Kalmbach does everything possible with sales, purchasing, scheduling and other areas that are integrated into the supply chain to ensure that the supply chain does not break down.
