Walki has initiated earlier the actions to limit the travelling of Walki employees until the risk of Coronavirus has gone down. Our employees should primarily follow the instructions and guidance given by the local authorities. In addition, Walki has given own instructions to protect the employees;
• All business travelling is not allowed until further notice without exceptions.
• Home office for all non-production critical persons.
Walki decline to receive visitors at all of its plants or offices worldwide until further notice.
• No physical meetings. All meetings should be arranged via Skype/Teams/phone.
Coronavirus has not so far effected to any Walki deliveries, not in raw materials and neither in customers deliveries. Walki is continuously assessing the situation and updating its risk assessment related to the Corona virus situation. Countermeasures and contingency plans have been put in place where an increased risk of supply disturbances has been identified. The measures include e.g. increasing the safety stock in the overall supply chain and broadening the use of different logistic solutions with the aim of ensuring uninterrupted supply to our customers.
Walki will regularly evaluate the situation and the official recommendations and update the guidance accordingly.
