Information to customers regarding coronavirus affected supply chains
Following the outbreak of coronavirus the Chinese government has temporarily shut down a number of production sites in affected areas. Some of these sites produce components used in Northern Industrial’s supply chain.
While Northern Industrial holds a very large amount of stock in our UK based warehouse, we anticipate that in a small number of cases our supply and repair service may be delayed.
Our key suppliers have now implemented coordinated programs designed to minimise the impact of reduced inbound and outbound shipping to and from China. As this is a dynamic situation, it is difficult to predict how the situation will affect individual products. We will therefore update our customers as more information becomes available.
In the meantime, Northern Industrial will continue to utilise our very large stock of new and obsolete industrial automation products to minimise the impact of downtime for all our UK and internationally based customers.
