Information on the Corona Virus Pandemic
Dear business partners!
Daily, sometimes even hourly, there are new information about the Corona pandemic.
Of course, also we at BIKAR look at the events very carefully.
Our management team is in close contact every day to evaluate the situation and initiate necessary measures.
Two aspects are in focus: the health of our employees and ensuring the ability to deliver to our customers.
The measures taken so far ensure the maximum possible physical distance between our employees. Whenever possible, we have converted workplaces to home offices. In production, we ensure the separation of different shifts, but also the separation of individual employees from each other. Due to the high degree of automation in our production halls, this is very well possible and only changes individual work processes to a very limited extent. Employees who cannot completely avoid contact with suppliers and collectors (e.g. during loading and unloading) are equipped with complete protective clothing.
Our purchasing department maintains very close contacts with our suppliers. Also at this point the material flow is currently intact. At the same time, all storage capacities have been well filled in the past months, so that we are also prepared for possible temporary delivery failures. In addition, our 8 spatially separated warehouses and production halls distributed over our two locations in Bad Berleburg and Korbußen offer additional supply security.
Unfortunately, no one can foresee the further development. We do everything in our power to be your reliable partner for all non-ferrous metal semi-finished products, taking the highest safety precautions. However, we are dependent on functioning supply chains.
Should there be delays or failures in the coming period, we will inform you immediately to the best of our knowledge.
