Information regarding coronavirus (COVID-19) from Wentus Kunststoff GmbH
Dear Business Partner,
We have already informed you last week about the measures taken by Wentus Kunststoff GmbH to protect our customers, partners and employees. Due to the rapid developments in the markets and the government's guidelines, you will receive an update about the current state of play and a short-term outlook.
As far as we know, none of our employees has the Corona virus. This shows that the infection protection measures initiated at Wentus GmbH have been very successful so far and that we have very responsible employees who strictly comply with the regulations even in their free time. We have implemented that employees with appropriate symptoms stay at home as a precaution. As a result, staff shortages may be occasional. At present, this does not affect the ability to deliver your orders.
In order to enable timely raw material planning and to guarantee delivery capability in the best possible way, we have asked many of you to submit your requirements in good time. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you very much for the orders that have been submitted so far. In addition, we have increased our raw material planning to ensure the supply situation with granules, inks and solvents remain available. At the moment, therefore, we are well supplied in the printing inks and solvents sectors and do not see any delivery difficulties in the local area. Resin granules and films are currently experiencing short-term delays, which we have been able to manage well internally to date.
Currently BOPP films have drastically reduced in availability, so much so that the delivery schedules of these affected products will also be increased significantly. Your contact persons at Wentus will pass on updates to you in this regard.
According to the information available to us, the local Government has classified the packaging industry, and therefore also our company, as a system-critical part of the food supply chain. This means that we cannot be expected to face any difficulties, even as a result of possible closures.
We are currently preparing to continue producing before the Easter holidays to ensure your supply and keep delivery times as short as possible. However, we ask for your understanding that due to the current supply situation, there may be deviations from the delivery dates delivered.
We wish you a happy Easter holiday and will inform you in due course about any changes or new developments we may experience.
Yours sincerely Wentus Kunststoff GmbH
Christof Renz Managing Director
