There are significant restrictions in production and logistics, especially in Italy and India. So far, we are able to compensate these restrictions. We have increased our stock (in Europe 110 Mio. €) and we are able to schedule replacement deliveries from other regions. Our ability to deliver and the availability of our products is given throughout the series production area. Individual orders in the custom-made area are currently being examined. We will inform you immediately if there are delays in delivery of your order.

We consistently undertake preventive measures at all our locations worldwide. Our reporting chain with appropriate quarantine rules takes effect at an early stage if a suspected case of infection and possible points of contact with the virus is detected. We have discontinued travel activities, conferences, events and meetings and are available to our customers at all times by telephone and video conference. We use home office regulations throughout to ensure that key functions are maintained for the customer. We have massively increased hygiene standards at our locations.
In the subsidiaries and at the production sites, we are taking additional local measures where necessary to slow down the spread of the virus.
