Full Production and Shipment Capabilities / No Lockdown in Bavaria, Germany in Force

DELO has taken several actions to make sure that we remain a reliable partner for you even in times of a global pandemic. 

The worldwide outbreak of the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV 2) has not yet had any impact on our production. Currently, our headquarters and all our subsidiaries are fully operational and continue to produce and ship goods.

This is also the case with regard to the limitations the Bavarian State administration has put in effect on Saturday, 21 March. Please note that this is no curfew as it is in other regions and these rules particularly emphasize that employees can still go to work.

Current limitations:

Our US subsidiary is affected by the emergency order of the Governor of Massachusetts, requiring all non-essential business to close until April 7. Our employees will continue to operate remotely and support customers as intensively as usual. We will ship samples and normal orders directly from our headquarters to US states with open businesses.

Due to government restrictions and reduced global cargo capacities, delivery delays may occur in some regions. We will do everything we can do to deliver your orders as quickly and reliably as usual.

Our actions:

In order to maintain our production and shipment capabilities DELO's risk management system as well as coronavirus task force monitors all relevant processes. Numerous business continuity measures for different scenarios have been implemented. This includes: 

Inventory: All purchase items and their inventories are continuously checked in order to increase them even further if necessary.

Suppliers: We are in active communication with our suppliers so that we are always up to date and able to react immediately if necessary. We currently don’t expect any impact on our raw material supply with regard to the closing of businesses in many US states.

Production: In order to protect our workforce and our capabilities to process orders as well produce and deliver our products to you, the following actions are currently in place, among many others:

  • Suspension of all business trips
  • Extreme limitation of customer and other visits with strict rules applying (questionnaire, distancing)
  • Many employees are working in the home office to keep them healthy and to protect employees working on site. They are fully equipped and productive. 
  • Almost all meetings, if there are any at all, take place via digital communication tools.
  • Increased hygiene measure, a hygiene campaign as well as instructions for all employees to keep distance of two meters between each other during work and breaks

Of course, we are constantly monitoring the situation and will take all necessary actions – both, to protect our employees and to be a reliable partner for you.
