UPDATE Corona virus – Current delivery situation

23.03.2020

23 March 2020 – In the course of the week, a range of measures has been taken to contain the corona virus and to protect people. The fundamental developments in connection with Covid-19 are thus also having effects on the delivery situation at BÜFA.

In the coming weeks, challenges in logistics are to be expected. From today's view, the customary fast supply of raw materials cannot be guaranteed by the forwarders as always. We therefore ask our customers to consider this in their planning.

In our business line Chemicals, the supply of biocidal active substances, especially for hand hygiene, is limited. Due to the high demand, we expect longer delivery times here.

In the business line Cleaning, demand for personal hygiene products remains very high. As in recent weeks, we are supplying our existing customers and are examining further inquiries.

In our business line Composites we are still able to deliver fully.

At this point we will further inform you.


15 March 2020 - The spread of the corona virus is now increasingly influencing economic and public life worldwide.

Despite this, our business lines Chemicals and Composites are currently still able to ensure the full ability to deliver.

In the field of personal hygiene the demand has continued to rise. Therefore, production capacity in our business line Cleaning is being utilized to a high degree. As a result, we continue to supply our existing customers in the usual quantities and are examining further customer requests.

We will continue to report.


6 March 2020 - The coronavirus has caused a number of new infections in almost all German federal states.

The current situation continues to have not any effects on product availability and quality in our business lines Chemicals and Composites.

In our business line Cleaning, the high demand leads to production bottlenecks for personal hygiene products. At present, we are supplying our existing customers in usual quantities. BÜFA Reinigungssysteme is examining further requests.

In case of changes we once inform you.


28 February 2020 - After spreading in parts of China, first infections of the corona virus have occurred in Europe and Germany. As a result, international trade fairs, which also affect our business areas, have been cancelled or postponed to protect people. 

Notwithstanding this, there are still no effects at BÜFA on availability or quality of our products. Nevertheless, we are monitoring developments in our supply chains very closely. This enables us to take appropriate measures to ensure the ability to deliver if necessary.

We will keep you informed about any changes.


10 February 2020 - At present, the corona virus is spreading in parts of China. As a result, many Chinese companies are not operating since the traditional New Year's Day celebrations on January 25, 2020.

So far these local measures have had no effect on the current delivery situation at BÜFA. As usual, all our products are available for delivery and availability.

In addition to deliveries from overseas, we purchase products and raw materials from Europe on the one hand, and on the other hand we keep stocks on hand in order to be able to guarantee the supply of goods.

We will keep a close eye on the situation and inform you about any change.
