maxon statement on the Coronavirus situation
Dear Customers and Suppliers
Almost all regions of the world are at risk of contracting the new corona virus. The WHO has now classified the virus as a pandemic. The health of all people who work for and with maxon is our highest priority in these times. That is why we have implemented the measures of the WHO and the national health authorities.
We want to make an active contribution to curbing or at least slowing the spread of the virus. In the event of an infection at one of our locations, we have taken all necessary precautions to reduce the risk of infection of further employees as much as possible while at the same time maintaining operations.
We decided to cancel or postpone all trips that are not absolutely necessary. This also includes planned trips to and from customers as well as trips to and from suppliers.
The biggest challenge for the company is the supply of materials. The gaps in the supply chain are increasing and the situation is expected to deteriorate further.
Through a short time working program at our headquarters in Switzerland and a global cost savings program we will ensure operational reliability over the coming months. Until further notice we will continue production five days a week.
Outside of these restrictions, we remain fully available for you.
We look forward to working with you in this exceptional situation and will do everything we can to remain a reliable partner.
As the current situation can change fundamentally every day, we will inform you about updates via our website: www.maxongroup.com
Eugen Elmiger, CEO maxon Group
