Dear business partners,
In order to react appropriately to the current dynamic situation regarding the spread of the corona virus, Bender has intensified its emergency measures based on its pandemic plan. The preventive components affect all sites of the Bender Group, to protect the health of our employees, to prevent the spread of the coronavirus and to continue to maintain business operations in the best possible way for you.
These include severe restrictions on travel, the adaptation of our meeting culture to digital meetings, and the extensive reduction of visits to our locations by external business partners. On the other hand, we have introduced more stringent preventive measures with a particular focus on compliance with strict hygiene regulations in all areas of the company. Wherever possible, our employees work remotely with the help of home office regulations. They have full access to all IT systems including all telephone systems. In this way, we want to equalise our work spaces and defuse the situation as much as possible.
We communicate with all partners in our supply chain in order to be informed about possible effects at an early stage and to be able to react. You would be informed at short notice about any changes regarding already promised delivery dates. Your contact persons are still available for you by telephone or e-mail. From today's perspective, we do not see any bottlenecks on the procurement side and have a good inventory situation for our finished products.
Thanks to an efficient supply chain, production and internal support, our deliveries as well as collections at our logistics centre are currently guaranteed. All departments and areas are operational: engineering, administration, production, sales, logistics and support. However, Government and local restrictions do apply, please consult with your local Bender representative.
We are closely monitoring the current situation and will keep you informed of developments should there be any impact on our ability to deliver.
Bender GmbH & Co. KG
