Statement Coronavirus20 Mar 2020
More countries are taking measures to restrict the corona virus outbreak. This means for example that we are confronted with longer waiting times at borders which could result in longer lead-times outside our control. Customers can help us by ordering products in time. We will do our utmost together with our partners and suppliers to avoid any direct disruptions in our ability to produce and supply as we normally do. We shall inform any customer directly if this situation were to change for their order. Trusting on your flexible cooperation.

The coronavirus is continuing to spread. It is therefore necessary for Avebe to take additional measures to protect the health and safety of our colleagues, customers and suppliers.
The measures that we have put in place to prevent the spread of the virus are:
- Ban on travelling until 6th of April,
- Our employees are working from home (if possible) and are not attending any events such as large meetings and exhibitions,
- Avoid meetings at other Avebe locations and locations outside Avebe, preferably using conference call options such as Microsoft Teams,
- Reminding everyone of good hygiene practices.
Our employees have been given hygiene instructions to wash their hands regularly, not to shake hands, sneeze and cough in the elbow and to keep distance from people who are sick.
We realize that this virus outbreak is causing concerns. We will do our utmost to avoid any direct disruptions in our ability to produce and supply as we normally do. We shall inform any customer directly if this situation were to change for their order.
