CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19 UPDATE

 

Important message for our customers

 

Dear customer,

We would like to inform you that on March 12, 2020, at 6 p.m., the Republic of Slovenia declared a SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) epidemic and since then, SK Škrlj has been operating under force majeure conditions.

At the moment, work at the production plant is proceeding with minimal negative impacts on our production capacity. Unfortunately, the extent of this epidemic and its consequences in the coming weeks and months cannot be predicted, which is why:

- We may be unable to obtain new supplies of raw materials due to delays or cancellations.

- There might be a reduction of production capacity.

- We may be unable to transport products.

In light of the current situation, we have taken the protective measures that are necessary to ensure our workers' safety and strongly encourage all advised self-protective measures. Hand and surface disinfectants are always at disposal, as well as other protective equipment. Some of our teams have been divided into shifts (with no overlap between them), while our sales and marketing team, as well as anyone else who is able to do so, is now working mostly from home. They all remain reachable by email.

Some additional measures have been taken specifically for the safety of our warehouse and reception area employees. Access to the reception and warehouse area is now limited to employees only. Everyone else (delivery workers, truck drivers, etc.) is kindly asked to wait outside where we have prepared a temporary reception area. Access has been further restricted by cancelling business visits and trips, as well as nonurgent meetings.

Up until this moment, it appears that the virus has fortunately not reached our team and our plan is to keep it like that by following government instructions and, if necessary, implementing additional protective measures.
We would like to reassure you that we are doing everything in our power to carry out our production process as normally and safely as possible. In case of any changes that may affect the production and/or transport of your product, you will be informed immediately.

 

Thank you for your understanding.

Stay healthy!

SK Škrlj
