Dear All / Dear C. Gerhardt Partner,
The pandemia caused by the dramatic spreading of the Sars CoV-2 virus means a huge challenge to everyone of us.
The German Government has decided not to lockdown the country. In order to slow down the spread, however, the strategy of social distance is being followed. In these times, our main priority is to keep all our employees healthy and of couse remain fully functional. Therefore we are following the governmental recommendations.
Amongst others, we have reduced the presence of our staff by half in order to minimize the contact points. Addionally we have set up the infrastructure for home office work wherever feasible. We are monitoring the steps taken on a regular basis and are going to reinforce them if necessary.
At C. Gerhardt, we are still fortunate, as we have no reported corona infection among our staff so far and the company is still fully operable: our warehouse is filled with consumables and parts and the production of instruments is untroubled. We are processing existing and incoming orders and are shipping them out.
You may rest assured that our sales support, order processing, application support, service and logistics teams are still here for you. And that they are happy to answer your requests and support you wherever possible.
The situation is serious, but not without hope. We trust that thanks to our solid cooperation we can overcome this crisis together.
Your C. Gerhardt Team
