Microtech Electronics – Coronavirus update 16.03.2020

Dear Client,

So far, the impact of the coronavirus on Microtech has been limited to delays in the supply of PCB’s from China, and some components.

We are open as normal and continue to manufacture products to acknowledged delivery dates.

However, we remain vigilant and are taking the necessary precautions as and when recommended by the government.

Therefore we would like to ask if your company has imposed any restrictions on deliveries from your suppliers? Maybe you only have specific times goods can be delivered.
This will help to ensure that deliveries get to the right place at the right time and avoid any goods being returned to us.

We are also interested to hear if you have made any contingency plans that we could learn from and implement ourselves.

Thank you for your attention and I look forward to receiving your feedback.

Impact of Coronavirus on deliveries

Following the outbreak of the coronavirus, the Chinese government have extended the New Year holiday period, meaning many manufacturing and supplier sites will not open again until the 10th February.

This will have an impact on supply chain operations and industrial production throughout China, including PCB suppliers.

Whilst we plan to minimise any delays this will cause to our own production, it is likely we will see a knock on effect.

We will be in touch if this will delay your planned delivery, but please get in contact with us if you have any immediate concerns.

We will of course continue to monitor the situation and provide further updates as when we receive new information from China.
