Corona Virus Notification
We continue to closely monitor developments with respect to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We have been taking steps to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our employees including travel restrictions (both internationally and within the regions), reviewing business continuity plans, prudently evaluating the need and attendance at group gatherings and working to implement visitor guidelines for those coming to our locations around the globe.
We have also established a team that is working to determine the appropriate measures which should be taken during this event. This team will help guide our actions in responding to a potential global outbreak including measures to reduce the spread of the illness and maintaining business continuity including IT, procurement, manufacturing and supply chain functions.
Supply Chain and Customer Impacts:
As you are aware, supply chains have been impacted by the coronavirus outbreak, with large-scale disruption in many areas. Abtech expects that the impact of shipping will result in a reduction of delivery reliability, route frequency and availability in the short to mid-term supply.
We are working closely with our customers to determine any potential impacts or delays. We are also verifying our suppliers' ability to supply raw materials to our sites around the world to continue running our manufacturing sites.
We realise this situation remains dynamic and we will continue to provide updates as we learn more. We are confident in our preparation and contingency planning for situations such as this. It is also important to remember that Abtech Ltd has a global manufacturing footprint and is able to continue production of its products at alternate locations should the need arise.
We remain committed to providing the high-quality service and support that our customers have come to expect of our company prior to and during this situation.
