Bluefors operations during the COVID-19 outbreak

Bluefors is continuously following the news and information released regarding the situation of COVID-19 worldwide. Regulations and restrictions change rapidly, and we are constantly checking the effects it might have on our operations and how to handle this.

Production and operations

As a precaution to limit the risk of unnecessary exposure to the virus at our premises, our staff that can perform their tasks from home are urged to do so. We are running our customer services as usual with our remotely working sales and support teams responding to your requests. In addition, we have safety measures in place for the production and practice physical distancing in the factory.

Even under these new conditions, we are still able to run a significant production. Therefore, as we have a fairly large parts stock, we do not foresee any short-term production delays due to the COVID-19 situation. Our supply chain is still functioning and deliveries are coming in, but we are continuously monitoring the situation with our suppliers and try to adapt if there are any changes.

At the moment we still aim to deliver our products with regular delivery times, however in these uncertain times, delays in deliveries and potential new restrictions due to COVID-19 are out of our control.

Visits

To ensure that Bluefors premises are kept safe, we are following and complying with all regulations from local authorities. To ensure that we minimize the risk of spreading the disease in Bluefors premises, we currently have a no-visit policy for non-critical business activities and each case is evaluated individually.

Travel

We are following the Finnish Ministry for Foreign Affairs’ instructions for travels abroad and currently travels are not possible. Bluefors has therefore cancelled all upcoming system installations and service visits. For upcoming installations our site planning team is in contact and give more information on an updated schedule.

Continued information

The status of the COVID-19 virus and its implications world-wide are changing rapidly. We’ll update on possible changes to our operations on this webpage.
