ATOP is constantly monitoring the situation related to the COVID-19 virus spread globally. We are taking at most care so that our supply chain is remains under control & our prestigious customers sales commitment are not affected. However, an element of uncertainty exists with regards to the part of our supply chain depending on Mainland China. Specific parts that are sourced from mainland China might have an impact on the delivery once they are short. Unfortunately, we’re now unable to provide a specific answer that addresses all items in detail. ATOP continues to process orders as usual and a number of measures have been put in place to ensure uninterrupted factory operation. Deliveries and express-deliveries are, as of now, not affected. We are monitoring the situation on a daily basis and will take the necessary, proportional, additional measures. Receiving a forecast from you would help significantly in planning and delivering all forecasted items on time.
Moreover, since our employees’ health and safety are a priority to us, we have put in place the preventive measures for access control, visitor restrictions and sanitations in our offices. As of now, our Taiwan offices are open and fully operational but we require advance arrangements for visitors. Furthermore, we have decided to suspend all international business travel until further notice, cancel or minimize internal and external group events, and empower our employees to a #smartworking agile environment.
With this extreme measure we hope to help our various offices & partners globally overcome this difficult moment and to fight this situation together.
