COVID-19 Updates to Customers & Partners

 

The world is facing an unprecedented crisis due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

The health and well-being of our employees, customers and partners are our primary concern.

 

Our operations are based in Malaysia & Switzerland (now including the UK and Czech Republic since our acquisition of JJS Manufacturing in May 2021. Click here for more information about this), and these countries have implemented stringent measures to manage the pandemic. We have placed much emphasis on very stringent Health & Safety procedures and are continuously striving to manage our response.

 

Since the beginning of 2020, we have kept our customers and partners regularly updated about COVID-19 developments relating to our operations and business commitments. 

 

These updates can be viewed or downloaded below for easy reference. We will continue to keep our customers and partners updated as the situation evolves.

 

Our best wishes to everyone. Stay safe.
