24 February 2020: we are pleased to announce that our Kunshan facility has now re-opened and that our team is working to fulfil outstanding orders as quickly as possible.
Following the communications on 27 January and subsequently 8 February from the State and Provincial Government of Jiangsu, Zotefoams’ Kunshan facility will remain closed until 3 March. This is in line with nationwide measures to limit the spread of the 2019-mCOV coronavirus and is subject to review.
I am pleased to report that all our employees are well and unaffected as this announcement is released and we hope that with preventative measures in place, this will continue to be the case.
Employees in commercial roles are working from home and available via phone or email, however the closure of our facility does mean an unplanned shutdown of T-FIT® production in China. We are endeavouring to meet all outstanding commitments and mitigate any possible delays via other production facilities in our global network.
The health and wellbeing of our employees remains Zotefoams’ priority, we fully support these measures and other actions taken by the State and Provincial Government to contain this outbreak.
We will continue to monitor the situation and issue further updates as necessary.
Director of High-Performance Products
