Version 5


    Information for our Non-production Material suppliers, Production Material suppliers will be informed separately:


    Last week we informed you about the current suspension of production due to the spread of COVID-19.

    For the decision regarding the suspension of production, we are following the latest notes and information from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) for Germany, respectively the country-specific institutions and follow the recommendations of the international, national and local authorities. 

    Furthermore, it is our ambition to limit the effects for everyone involved to a minimum. Due to the recent, dynamic development, we are now forced to extend the suspension of production for several plants. 

    Please find the details for your planning for every plant in the following chart. 

    As long as our production remains suspended, no material and goods delivery is possible. Excluded from this are for example important ramp-up topics. We kindly ask you to approach your contact person or representative in the respective department of our company immediately to coordinate whether your delivery or service is hereby affected. This will also apply if you are not only delivering material or goods but other deliveries or services.

    We will contact you as soon as we can in case of any changes. We kindly ask you to support this process constructively. 

    We thank you in advance for your trust and support!
