At Adder, our primary concern will always be the safety and security of our employees, alongside ensuring the ongoing success and continuity of our business. As current events unfold, we are focused on the ability of our business to maintain effective productivity. Every effort is being taken to ensure our customers, partners and suppliers receive the quality products and services they have come to expect from Adder.
As such, Adder has taken a number of proactive steps to plan and prepare for the potential impact of the Coronavirus (Covid-19). Firstly, we have established a dedicated Business Continuity Management team, comprising of personnel across the organization, who are responsible for planning and communicating Adder’s business continuity planning. At the center of that plan is ensuring the business operates as normally as possible.
It is important to state that we are not currently experiencing or expecting any significant impact on our supply chain as a result of Covid-19 and we remain vigilant as the location impact of the virus shifts around the world.
To achieve consistent and comprehensive business continuity planning, Adder is leveraging existing and newly introduced processes. For example, it is already common practice to review all critical supply chain partners for ability, capacity, financial health and lead time stability. However, as a manufacturer of technology hardware, the risks that may arise from Covid-19 for all suppliers, not just those in Asia, have been proactively reviewed and detailed discussions held to fully assess and understand the current situation.
