TDK-Lambda EMEA Statement on Covid-19 Coronavirus Outbreak
Posted : 08 Apr 2020
TDK-Lambda EMEA is monitoring the fast moving Covid-19 pandemic on a daily basis and taking all necessary actions in response.
Many of our customers are engaged in vital industries, particularly Healthcare, and other essential sectors. Therefore TDK-Lambda EMEA will use its best efforts to respond effectively whilst protecting the health and welfare of our employees and strictly following Government guidelines and instructions.
To prevent the coronavirus from spreading in its facilities worldwide, TDK-Lambda EMEA has implemented strict guidelines for business trips, prohibiting all trips outside of the EMEA Region and severely restricting trips between countries within the EMEA Region. Trips to High Risk Areas within EMEA as specified by the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) are also prohibited. In addition, all travelers – whether on business or private trips – who could not avoid a stay or stopover in risk countries or regions are instructed to work from home or self-isolate upon return for a period of two weeks. Moreover, we have prohibited most visitors to our facilities and extensive precautions are taken for essential visitors.
A series of prevention and control measures have been implemented at all TDK-Lambda’s sites that currently remain open including Social Distancing, enhanced hygiene measures and staff homeworking wherever practical.
We are currently facing challenges with staffing levels and supply chain which are impacting some of our manufacturing operations whilst other sites are still operating closer to normal. We are working diligently to overcome the issues as best as we can.
The Management of TDK-Lambda worldwide are continuously reviewing the situation and will take all necessary actions to mitigate disruption to our Customers. For further information about your specific requirements, please contact your local TDK-Lambda Representative or Sales Office.
Finally, we would like to express our gratitude to our Employees who have approached these problems in a positive and well-motivated way.
