You are going through a very difficult period right now. We wish you and your employees the best for the coming weeks and we thank you for all the trust and support you have given to Festo during this time.
Since the epidemic outbreak started in China, we have provided uninterrupted and reliable deliveries to you. This includes freight from overseas, local production and stock. For the coming months, we have secured freight continuity from Europe through different methods. Our Jinan plant has resumed 100% production and added extra safety stock for raw materials. China logistics centre has increased and optimized finished goods stock to ensure continuous supply to our customer base in Greater China.
Strict prevention measures have been taken in all Festo European entities, to ensure continuous operation. This includes, amongst other things, most people work from their home office. Factory employees have been physically separated into different teams in order to avoid physical contact.
Festo will continue to pay close attention to the situation and to ensure that measures are taken to provide our customers with the products and services which they need. As soon as the local restrictions are lifted, our sales engineers will visit you on site.
As a family-owned company with nearly 100 years history, we have always ensured the long-term continuous operation of the enterprise. We can withstand the situation for as long as it takes, both financially, and mentally. We will do our utmost to support you in this special period, face all the challenges and new opportunities together!
