COVID-19 has significantly transformed our lives during this
spring. Situation in each country has constantly changing. Therefore, we
want keep our customers regularly updated. Please be informed that our
reliability of delivery is still at a good level. Those European
factories, which were forced to shut down their operations, have reopened their
businesses in April or are just about to reopen in near future. Our
stocked product range is also still good.
Our personnel has been able to work normally in our warehouses and heat treatment plant regardless of the exceptional circumstances. Sales and other office personnel are mainly telecommuting at the moment. Despite the fact that the Finnish government has started to slowly clear the national restrictions, we are not yet planning to do the same in our business. We will follow our own in-house regulations as long as is necessary for safeguarding the health of our personnel. Therefore, we are not yet accepting any visitors in our business premises. However, the in-house restrictions do not mean that we have stopped communicating with our clients. In the absence of personal meetings we use both traditional and modern tools of communication. Telephone conferences and teleconferences are now both more important than ever. As a matter of fact it seems that practical and environmentally friendly teleconferences are here to stay also after COVID-19 pandemic.
We are constantly monitoring the development of COVID-19 pandemic. Foreseeing future is very difficult at the moment and any evaluations must be considered indefinite. Nevertheless, we strongly believe in the future and continue normally investment projects related to our service business.
