Katsa factories working almost as usually and delivery schedules unchanged
Finland is one of European countries under so called emergency situation due to Corona virus Covid-19. Finnish Parliament approved emergency laws proposed by Finnish Government on Wednesday the 18th of March, 2020.
At Katsa this situation means that the health of our employees and partners is priority number one. Until now Katsa has not faced any kind of internal epidemic due to the virus. To ensure avoiding anyone to get the virus we have increased awareness how to act in this situation.
Remote working of office employees have been increased. Factory lunch processes have been updated. Coffee breaks are now enjoyed individually. External visitors are not allowed at the moment. Katsa employees are not making business trips now. Customer and supplier meetings are arranged as web meetings. These are only some of the actions Katsa has established after Thursday the 12th of March, 2020.
Our procurement works closely with our suppliers and until now we have had no delivery challenges with our in-coming goods. Freight transportation works in Europe and so far also overseas supplies have been received. Our general raw material and item stocking principles help us and our customers in this situation.
Our factories work normally right now. Work load looks good for the coming weeks. 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.
With matters or concerns, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or your regular contact person at Katsa.
