Update of the Ongoing Situation and Evolving Impacts of COVID-19

News from Premix | March 17, 2020

In all our actions the goal is to protect the health and safety of Premix personnel as well as the society. With these actions, we wish also to ensure timely deliveries to our customers to the best of our ability.

On March 16th, the Finnish Government announced a 19-point list of emergency legislation to help prevent the spread of coronavirus. It includes, for example, closing Finnish borders from passenger traffic. So far, this has no effect on cargo, and our deliveries are being transported as planned. We are prioritizing the confirmed deliveries and will inform our customers should there be any changes or delays in them.

For the time being, we are not facing any reduction of operative hours or personnel or limitations of logistics. However, we are constantly taking several measures to prepare ourselves for the effects that we might face either due to possible lack of resources or tighter restrictions.

For securing your contingency planning and upcoming deliveries in these exceptional circumstances we encourage you to advance your orders and take sufficient supply in stock. Our Sales and Customer Service will do everything possible to fulfill your wishes and enable the continuity of your business. Although physical contacts are being restricted, we are happy to help you virtually.

We have taken many actions to ensure the health and safety of our personnel. We are not welcoming any visitors to Premix’s premises but encourage to have virtual meetings instead. All Premix team members are working remotely if their job allows. Only people working in production and laboratory are working on site. In our premises, we have intensified cleaning procedures and published many instructions to ensure high hygiene. These instructions include for example paying extra careful attention to good hand hygiene, keeping social distances, restrictions in the use of common spaces and keeping on working gloves whenever possible.

All our employees are instructed to stay home if they have even remote symptoms of respiratory infection and to follow the guidelines provided by Premix’s occupational health as well as authorities.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to your usual Premix contact.

Naturally, we follow the situation closely and operate according to the instructions provided by the authorities. Any changes will be updated here and personally to our customers.
