The first wave of Covid-19 past and no sickness cases at Katsa
Katsa released previous Covid-19 news on April 17, 2020.
Countries have been opening restrictions in Europe since early May. Primary schools in Finland were opened for the last two school weeks in the middle of May. Restaurants and terraces were able to start servicing customers since June 1st in Finland. On the 4th of June Finland had the first day since the start of Covid-19, when there were no single new sickness case.
The first wave of Covid-19 is clearly getting behind of us and people are learning again to move publicly and handle the situation, while knowing that the second wave of Covid-19 can become the reality.
Katsa has continued to work almost as usually since putting in place improved working processes due to Covid-19 in the middle of March. There has been no single sickness case at Katsa. Earlier we reported that our orders booked in March were on a very good level. April concerning orders booked was almost as good as March and orders booked in those two months and in May basically keep us busy during summer months.
We are still careful and continue all the improved processes to avoid our employees and partners to get the virus. Katsa employees can make business trips, when necessary, but only according to official instructions. Sales is still operating remotely.
During March to May we have analysed a lot of our in-coming items and especially their origins. Some critical items were found due to the origin factory being shut down, but until now we had no impacts. Currently the situation is improving all the time.
We encourage our customers to contact us with any gear component and/or gearbox supply difficulties you may face globally. We are ready to help you. Consider your preparations for after summer months and be pro-active with your actual ordering needs and possible inventory increase to be flexible to support your customers since August and onwards.
With matters or concerns, please contact email@example.com or your regular contact person at Katsa.
