NEWSLETTER: COVID-19 Information from KGS DIAMOND
The coronavirus COVID-19 has been dominating global news for these past few months, but at this moment the measures taken by countries to stop the spread of COVID-19 are at last becoming more stringent and are taken in quick succession.
Due to this, many officials in the public sector, but also many private companies, are only now realizing the possible impact the virus will have and, most importantly economically speaking, the impact that the necessary measures taken to reduce the reach of the virus will have.
It is in light of these developments that we think it may be reassuring for customers to receive some additional information. It is our believe at KGS DIAMOND GROUP that being proactive is a necessity in situations such as these. That is why we have implemented hygiene-, travel- and investment-related measures weeks ago, before the first case had even been reported in the respective countries of our European manufacturing sites.
Even though we believe there is no reason for panic, KGS DIAMOND GROUP sees and respects the seriousness of the COVID-19 virus. We believe it is good to be careful, not to take any unnecessary risks and to take all reasonable precautions to protect you, our employees, all our families, as well as the continuity of our company and your business. That is why we have taken additional measures that will ensure business continuity for us and for our customers. Some of these measures will affect the way we can interact with you as a customer.
The following additional measures that apply to all KGS companies since the 11th of March 2020 may affect you as a customer:
- International and national travel to customers and suppliers is no longer allowed.
- Reception of persons at KGS DIAMOND GROUP locations are subject to strict entry control.
- Internal hygiene protocols are in force.
- KGS follows the protocols of transport companies.
- In recent weeks stocks have strategically been increased for both the raw materials of the production companies and for trade goods.
An international crisis management team of KGS DIAMOND GROUP assesses the developments from day to day and will act where necessary. If you have any questions you can always call the KGS office near you. We ask for your understanding and will continue with our efforts.
