Heilbronn, March 19, 2020. – We hope that you are doing well during this difficult situation. The safety of our employees and the processing of the orders and projects are our top priorities. Within the scope of our possibilities, we will do everything we can to remain accessible. We continue to monitor and evaluate the Coronavirus status on a daily basis. At ILLIG, we have implemented comprehensive measures to protect our employees, customers, and suppliers. We are prepared to face the current situation and to stand by our partners.
We are, however, seeing an increase in the number of disruptions in global supply chains due to the pandemic. Within Europe, the reintroduction of border controls is leading to additional waiting times and putting logistical schedules in jeopardy. For the time being, we are therefore unable to give any guarantees that ordered machines, tools, and spare parts will be delivered on-time, worldwide. Due to the sometimes strict travel restrictions and prohibitions, service assignments of our employees are also more difficult to plan.
Our government, as well as Germany’s Public Health institute RKI (Robert-Koch-Institut), appeal to all people to minimize their social contacts for the time being and to postpone trips and events. As an employer and a partner, ILLIG takes this appeal very seriously. Our entire day-to-day business is being put to the test right now and will continue this way for foreseeable future. In this situation, we must stick together!
We have committed ourselves to act and to contribute to slowing down the spread of the virus. We have cancelled trips and sent employees to the home office. Appointments, visits, and meetings have been postponed or rescheduled until further notice. Your contacts will remain available via e-mail and phone.
ILLIG is there for you. We will overcome the crisis together.
Stay safe and stay healthy!
