Flooding in the greater Euskirchen area

Customer information due to a severe storm led to considerable flooding in the greater Euskirchen area

Dear business partners,

In our email of July 16, 2021 we informed you about the severe storm in the Euskirchen area and its consequences.

As announced, we would like to inform you of the current status after 14 days.

In the meantime, the infrastructure in the region has been poorly restored. Fortunately, none of our employees suffered any damage to their health. But many were hit immediately – 4 families lost all their belongings. Experts are now in the process of deciding whether houses can be inhabited again or whether they have to be demolished due to the high level of pollutants. You can certainly imagine that most of our employees are correspondingly traumatized by what happened.

For reasons of sustainability, we decided a long time ago to take suppliers out of the area if possible. This sometimes leads to delays in delivery, which in turn lead to delays in production.

We currently have about 75% of our shifts occupied. We assume that it will probably take another 2-3 weeks before we can manned all of the shifts we need.

We endeavor to deliver all orders on time, but postponements and delays may occur due to the above reasons, for which we ask for your understanding.
