Corona virus update

On 30 January 2020, the Director-General of the World Health Organization, following the advice of the Emergency Committee convened under the International Health Regulations (2005), declared the current outbreak of COVID-19 a public health emergency of international concern.

You are aware of the serious nature of the impact that the current outbreak of Corona virus Covid-19 is having on society and business in China and other parts of the globe, lately also in Europe. Due to the risk of global or local supply chain interruptions, we are monitoring a potential impact to our business.

At this very moment, we have not identified any major manufacturing or transport disruptions in our supply chain. However, we are closely monitoring the situation together with our customers and suppliers. Our goal is to keep the general reporting to the minimum, knowing how much effort is being put on this issue by all stakeholders. In case we learn that you or your customers have a potential of being affected, we will contact you immediately.

It is imperative, we all maintain open communication channels, so we can collectively work through this crisis. We appreciate teamwork and keep you informed as this situation develops.

Please do not hesitate to contact local Fortaco representatives for more information.
