Statement on the impact of the novel coronavirus outbreak

3 April 2020
The COVID-19 outbreak is affecting many regions across the world. Axis primary focus in this situation continues to be the safety of our employees, and we have taken several actions to reduce the risk of employees being exposed to the virus. 

Many countries have put restrictions on the movement of citizens, which generates uncertainty and causes some delays in our supply chain, which in some cases results in slightly longer delivery times for Axis products.

We are confident in finding solutions to reduce inconveniences for our customers. During the last week, we could see that our efforts, such as rearranging transports, working with multiple suppliers and monitoring stock levels across our supply chain, had positive effects. Our distributors are in most cases operating at normal level, our configuration and logistics centers and manufacturing sites are working well, and we are shipping our products.  

However, the situation remains uncertain. We are committed to keeping our partners and customers updated on a weekly basis about how the situation develops. For more detailed information, we refer Axis partners to the Extended Lead Time List or to their regular channels.
