An update on the current situation

Status: 30 March 2020

Dear customers, partners and colleagues,

At KSB we are following the rapid spread of the coronavirus and the associated global impact on people and the economy very closely, and have been quick to take measures to protect our employees and maintain our operational capability.

An interdisciplinary steering committee with subordinate workstreams on special topics such as personnel, procurement, production, sales & service and communication is discussing the worldwide situation in our company on a daily basis and deciding on measures to be introduced. Our top priority is the responsibility we bear towards our employees, our company, our customers and our suppliers. In endeavouring to meet this responsibility, we seek to act with foresight, utmost professionalism and necessary pragmatism. Though this will be a difficult time for us all, we are absolutely confident that we will overcome the challenges ahead.

In some countries, we have had to close down production, either wholly or in part, as a result of government regulations. But the vast majority of our plants are operating without major restrictions and their capacity utilisation is good. According to the information available to us, however, production may be restricted or interrupted at individual suppliers. Here we will use existing stocks and alternatives wherever possible.Due to reduced transport capacities, especially in air and sea freight, delays in shipment may occur. We are therefore working hard with our logistics partners to keep the delivery routes of our products stable.

Wherever practical and possible, our employees are currently working from home and using digital communication channels. We have also reduced in-person events to an absolute minimum and replaced them with Skype and video conferencing. In this way we are reducing personal contacts and lowering the risk of transmission. This also allows us to ensure that your contact persons in Sales and Service continue to be available for you without restriction. The same applies to our digital services, such as the KSB Online Shop.

In the factories themselves, we have been quick to initiate extensive additional hygiene and safety measures to reduce the risk of infection to an absolute minimum.

Dear customers, partners and colleagues, on behalf of Management I would like to thank you very much for the trust you place in us – especially in the challenging times we are currently experiencing.

Our sales and service staff are of course always available to answer your questions.

Look after your health.
Yours faithfully,

Dr Stephan Timmermann
