The SARS-CoV2 (Corona) virus is now present practically all over the world and has had a lasting influence on society, the economy and private life in practically all countries in which BUCHI is represented. In the meantime, some affected countries have already returned to normality, others are slowly opening up.

For BUCHI, the protection of our employees and the guarantee of support for our customers remains the top priority. Our production site in Switzerland is still working to capacity today (May 26, 2020). Our glass production in India has been partially open again since April 25, 2020, after a 5-week state-imposed lock down phase. We have been able to start production of our BUCHI glassware again Together with our glass production in Switzerland, we have succeeded in preventing supply bottlenecks during this period.

Thanks to the close contact with our suppliers worldwide, we have been able to detect delivery delays early and prevent interruptions in our supply chain. We continue to regard limited shipping capacities in individual countries, especially also from India, and a massive increase in freight prices as our greatest risks. BUCHI Operations is monitoring the situation closely and will take appropriate action if necessary. As of today, we can meet our normal delivery times for most products. For products that are available with a delay, we communicate the adjusted delivery times as quickly as possible through our distribution channels.

The last months have proven that our business processes are set up in such a way that they still work in quarantine cases in all countries. BUCHI has taken important measures to prevent the spread of the virus as far as possible. We rely on all recommended hygiene measures, clear physical distancing and, where possible, we allow our employees to work remotely from their home. In addition, we communicate openly and honestly in line with our values, including with our customers and partners.

Please note that this information reflects the status as of May 26, 2020. We are aware that the situation can change very quickly and are constantly reassessing it.
