Coronavirus- update and potential impacts
The spread of the Coronavirus has now been declared a global emergency by the World Health Organisation. This virus is a major concern, particularly for China, where some provinces and multiple companies have announced they will be closing, currently for a minimum of two weeks. This will inevitably create a large backlog and impact on suppliers outside of the affected zones.
This also coincides with the Chinese New Year, where the factories in China are currently closed until February 8th 2020. This means that even once the shutdowns have been lifted, there is likely to be an accumulation of orders for these raw materials.
Reducing the impact
Due to the fact our main factory is located in Sri Lanka, we are not solely reliant on China for production. This means we are able to take a variety of steps to reduce the prospect that your orders will be impacted by the Coronavirus. We also hold a quantity of raw materials, which we will use to avoid waiting for Chinese raw materials and we are increasing our stock levels to ensure we can meet your demands with as little interuption as possible.
