As the coronavirus situation continues to evolve, Chemviron realise the importance to inform our customers on the impact on our activities and the steps we are taking to keep our people safe, and our products and services available.
Most of the activated carbon and filtration aid products manufactured and distributed by Chemviron are from European and USA origin. As of today, their availability and the associated reactivation services have not been impacted by the virus outbreak and, to the best of our knowledge, we currently do not anticipate disruptions in the deliveries and service performance to our customers.
To maintain this status, Chemviron is closely monitoring the evolution of the situation, updating its risk assessment to new developments and adjusting measures accordingly.
Measures currently applied by Chemviron include among others the following:
First and foremost, we are taking preventive measures to maintain a clean and safe working environment. To this end guidelines from health authorities and organisations have been implemented in our various facilities, which include:
- Hand hygiene
- Respiratory and cough hygiene
- If unwell, associates are requested to stay home, call a doctor and apply the medical advice
- Company travel restrictions
- Limitation on visitors
- Restricted access for drivers and contractors
Second, to minimise the risk on our supply chain, we performed a screening of our critical processes and identified back-up measures covering among others the following:
- Raw materials
Regarding transport, Chemviron has developed a long-term relationship with its partners who are entirely committed to apply similar measures and make all necessary efforts to continue timely delivering our customers.
Finally, we determined a series of additional measures to be implemented if circumstances so require. For instance, action plans related to staff organisation and remote access are defined to ensure critical workforce availability at any time.
Notwithstanding the difficulty of predicting all potential consequences in this rapidly changing situation, we trust to have taken the necessary measures to minimise the risk and are committed to keep you timely and proactively informed on further developments.
If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact your local sales representative who will be happy to provide you any specific additional information you may require.
We appreciate your trust and will do everything we can to continue meeting your activated carbon and filtration aid needs.
