At HydraForce we continue to take steps to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, whilst protecting the health and safety of our customers and employees.
Please see below the latest statement, regarding COVID-19 at HydraForce:
The HydraForce Global Business Continuity team continues to actively monitor and mitigate the impact of the pandemic and offer the following brief summary below for your information.
All our global factories are fully operational and are following all governmental policies and guidelines. Safety protocols such as, work-from-home for all possible employees, staggered shifts for production, specialized cleaning processes, and of course, all personal protective equipment remain in place.
HydraForce’ significant investment over the past several years means we have sufficient installed capacity at our sites to meet significant future growth demands for the next years.
Our global supply chains are operational, although we have reports from some suppliers that they are operating at a slightly reduced capacity. At this time, we are seeing some impact to our production levels, which we are working hard to keep to a minimum with extended and premium work hours and leveraging our global footprint.
Transportation and freight costs remain at higher levels than pre-pandemic, and some global routes have extended lead times.
Additional mitigation activities include authorizing suppliers to work additional hours at premium rates, optimizing supply base build schedules by part number, authorizing premium freight from suppliers, developing alternative supply channels, accelerating approval of suppliers in development and redistributing our global inventory.
This unforeseeable ‘force majeure’ event may have impact to deliveries and costs which are outside the reasonable control of HydraForce. Close collaboration of your short-term demands is important in helping us to help you.
If you have any immediate concerns, please contact your HydraForce Regional Sales Representative.
