Statement on the impact of the novel coronavirus outbreak

3 July 2020
The COVID-19 outbreak is continuing to affect many regions across the world, and restrictions on the movement of citizens in many countries generate uncertainty and affects global supply chains. Even though the situation remains uncertain, the last couple of weeks has been quite stable in terms of delivery times for Axis products. 

“Axis primary focus in this situation continues to be the safety of our employees. As we become accustomed to the new situation, I am proud to see our organization finding ways of collaborating where we address a whole range of new challenges. Despite the uncertainties, we have all gone into this period with a balanced approach – taking care of each other and of our customers,” says Axis CEO Ray Mauritsson. 

Efforts such as rearranging transports, working with multiple suppliers and monitoring stock levels across Axis supply chain, have had positive effects. Axis distributors are in most cases operating at normal level and Axis configuration and logistics centers and manufacturing sites are working well. Also, being an important provider of products and services necessary to the operations and maintenance of essential infrastructure and governmental functions in many countries, several countries’ authorities have approved the continuing business of Axis and of its suppliers. 

Axis is committed to keeping partners and customers updated about how the situation develops. For more detailed information, Axis partners are referred to the Extended Lead Time List or to their regular channels.
