Information about current situation in China regarding Coronavirus

Monday 10th of February

Short update on the Coronavirus situation:

The factories are now reopened, however due to the virus, their capacity is between 20-50%. This is caused by the fact that people that have been travelling to WuHan or the Hubei province will be quarantined for another 14 days, roads between cities are still partly closed, this naturally affects the production capacity.

Factories need to carry out equipment maintenance during the first few days after a long shutdown. 

We need to expect delays the next few weeks to come, as the situation with workforce stabilises. We follow the situation closely, if/when we have more updated information we will share it here.

Do you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach out to your local Elmatica contact.

Update!
The Central Government of China initially extended the Chinese New Year holidays with 3 days. However, the Local Governments have been given the ability to extend. Meaning, that most factories in Southern China are to remain closed until the 9th of February.

The Coronavirus has invoked Force Majeure and temporarily reduced production capacity in China. Due to uncertainty regarding how the situation will develop, we strongly recommend those of our customers who need to secure their orders, to consider temporarily moving part of their production to Europe, or other non-China alternatives.

We have alternative PCB Manufacturing Partners outside China who can support you, if you have an order of particular critical importance.
Kindly contact your Country Manager handling your account for more information.
