March 17th 2020 - Impact of the corona virus pandemia

The corona virus has finally made its way to Europe spreading quickly. Almost everyone is now affected by the measures which are aimed to contain further distribution of the disease. Please find below some points how we as company try to cope with this situation.
- We recognise the severity of the situation.
- We are in close contact with local authorities to implement reasonable preventive measures in time.
- We reduce risk by defining of redundancies and emergency plans.
- In daily working live meaningful measures like disinfection, reduction of travel, avoiding close contact, etc. minimise the chances of contagion.
- Our products are sourced predominantly from China, specifically from the region Fujian which is not listed as region at risk. Furthermore in contrast to Europe the count of new cases in China is falling constantly.
- According the "Bundesinstitut für Risikobewertung (German authority for risk assessment) the corona virus is relatively unstable in environment conditions. Contagion via shipment of goods is highly unlikely after 24 to 48 hours.
- At the moment delivery time of some items is affected by the transport restrictions. Especially capacity of air cargo has dropped significantly due to the partial grounding of flight routes. Possible further restrictions on transport of goods or other strict guidelines by authorities can hardly be predicted.
- We are in permanent close contact with our supplier for evaluation of the current situation.

Our traditional summer happening took place at the cottage of local hunting club. The efforts of the short walking tour getting there were quickly compensated by a tasty BBQ. Unfortunately the planned rafting tour on the river "Werra" had to be cancelled due to low water level. Nonetheless the sailor outfit played well anyway.
