We, like you, are trying to assess the potential impact of the Corona Virus outbreak in China on our global supply chain and our ability to continue to manufacture and/or supply our products uninterrupted.

Based on our current knowledge and information through the global supply chain we can only give the following comments to two key questions:-

  • Are we already facing manufacturing/supply issues? NO
  • Do we expect manufacturing/supply issues in the next weeks/months? THIS IS UNKNOWN AT THE PRESENT TIME AS THE SITUATION IS STILL EVOLVING

Avocet will endeavour to keep our supply chains flowing and our customers supplied with all their key products but we are totally at the mercy of a situation that is completely outside of our control and yours.

We will of course keep you informed at the earliest opportunity should we learn of any likely delays or shortages of raw materials, etc.

Meanwhile our thoughts go out to all the victims of this virus, their families and friends and those unable to travel to safety.

We appreciate your patience in this difficult time for the global economy.
