Stable supply chain out of China and no affect to GPV site in southern part of Switzerland due to the Coronavirus in Italy

For GPV Electronics CN in Zhongshan and for all other GPV sites, we have the supply chain under control, however not back at full capacity. We do experience delays on some selected customised materials such as plastics where, in single cases, we are still suffering insufficient supplies leading to shorter delays.

Today, our Global Sourcing department reports of a stable supply chain for both incoming materials to our site in China and for supplies being shipped from China to GPV sites worldwide. Therefore, production at GPV sites worldwide are back to an almost normal production again. Our entire procurement organisation continues to be in daily contact with suppliers to ensure a steady and scheduled flow of supplies.

GPV site in Mendrisio, Switzerland
We continuously observe the development of the Coronavirus as the virus has now taken a firmer grip on particularly Northern parts of Italy. Currently, we do not experience any impact from the Coronavirus to our site in Mendrisio, Switzerland. We follow the situation and the development very closely and will take the necessary precautions to prevent and control the Coronavirus at our sites in Europe.

In order to accommodate possible concerns and to answer the most frequently asked questions from customers regarding the coronavirus, GPV has published a Q&A, which is available on gpv-group.com.
