UPDATE: Impact of the corona virus for WAGO
Dear Business Partners,
To be clear, we can still be reached and will regularly inform you of the measures we are taking and our ability to deliver during the current situation. During the corona crisis we are basically holding up our response times. In individual cases response times may be slightly longer. We are closely monitoring the dynamic situation regarding the spread of the coronavirus and have taken extensive preventive measures, which we are regularly checking and adjusting. The preventive elements of our pandemic plan cover all locations to protect the health of our employees, to prevent the spread of the coronavirus and to continue to assist you as a business partner in the best possible way. From significant travel and visit restrictions to digital meetings to home office regulations and equalization of workspaces, we are taking these measures to keep the risk of infection as low as possible. Of course, that includes strict hygiene and social distancing in meeting and dining areas. Your WAGO contacts are still available to you without restriction. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
About the current supply situation:
We are maintaining steady communication with all partners in our supply chain to ensure we are informed of any potential effects as soon as possible to quickly respond as needed. Where procurement is concerned, right now we see only isolated shortages and except for a few individual cases, our production stock levels are very strong. Due to the shutdown in India, we do not have access to locally produced products anymore either, though we only offer them on a very small scope outside the country. The supply of materials from China is influenced by freight capacities, which in part are limited and much more expensive.
To date, current border restrictions have only slightly affected the movement of our goods. Our central warehouse in Germany naturally operates in strict compliance with the specified pandemic measures, so that we can deliver the ordered goods at the expected WAGO level of quality. Please observe regional restrictions or limitations such as areas of quarantine that may exist in your required delivery zones. If you are not currently able to receive deliveries, please inform us immediately so that we can coordinate delivery at a later date. Specifically, that currently applies to deliveries to France, Italy and Spain. There are increasing restrictions due to local pandemic measures in these areas.
We are closely monitoring the current situation and of course, will keep you informed of any new developments that may impact our ability to maintain supply.
