The Covid-19 situation is getting better all around the world, but the city of Shenzhen in the south of China has been placed under new restrictions because of a jump in new cases during the past week. As some of our partner factories are located in Shenzhen, the PCB and technical parts production could be delayed for one week or more, depending on the progression of the situation.
China has placed 17,5 million residents of the city of Shenzhen into lockdown for at least a week to prevent the growth of positive cases of Covid-19. All public transportation and businesses have been closed, including our production plants located in the city. Unfortunately, some of our customers’ supply chains will be affected.
ICAPE Group can rely on a strategic network of partner factories in Asia, the Americas and South Africa to prevent important disruption.
Eleven of our 80 factories are impacted. Our sourcing, purchasing and logistics departments are constantly monitoring the situation.
