Regarding Covid-19 situation

Back
June 18, 2020

Dear partners,

We are sharing this letter with you to inform you about Forge LT’s preventive actions dealing with worldwide virus as well as some other general information which might be of an importance to you.

Deliveries, leadtime, freight

First and foremost, we would like to inform you that our factory continues working as usual and there are no immediate delays tied or impacted by the ongoing situation. The transportation of the goods is also not impacted, although we would recommend giving a couple of days buffer for all ongoing and upcoming orders as a precaution.

Our supply-chain is not yet impacted by any means, the raw materials and other purchased components are arriving in time and there are no signals from our suppliers that it’s going to change in the near future.

Preventive actions

– The “risky” surfaces which are touched on constant basis are being disinfected every few hours in all company premises (admin and the workshop).
– Most of the administration level employees are now working from home and will continue to do so for at least two weeks.
– All visits to our partners locally and abroad has been postponed for indefinite period until further notice. Visits to Forge LT are also forbidden.
– We are constantly asking our partners for updates regarding the delivery of materials, components or other critical purchases and general information on the supply-chain and possible changes in delivery.

In case of escalation

Although it’s very hard to predict how the situation is going to escalate, we have an action-plan in case of escalation of the situation where the company would be forced to shutdown.

The plan includes readjustment of holiday days, extra work throughout the weekend days as well as overtime to catch-up to the order backlog. The financial fund of emergency is also set and ready if it comes to forced leave of our valued employees.

We have also introduced many “Plan Bs” in our supply-chain management, which includes purchases of raw materials, subcontracting services, machining tools and other critical items for our production.

 

Team Forge LT wishes you to stay safe and healthy during the crisis!
