Today, we received the message that the catch-up date for the Light + Building end of September has been officially cancelled. The reasons are the effects of the worldwide corona pandemic and the associated bans for events and travel restrictions. Of course, we were also full of anticipation, but we absolutely understand and support the decision of the Messe Frankfurt. Priority has the safety of visitors, exhibitors and responsible.
However, we are already looking forward to take part at the Light + Building in Frankfurt in March 2022.

Far-reaching measures to stem the spread of Covid-19 are now also taking effect in Europe. These vary according to the intensity of the situation in the countries.
Of course, we will keep you informed about how the current situation is developing regarding to BACHMANN. For us, priority is the protection of everyone, which we check daily and ensure in the best possible way by implementing important preventive measures for our employees and for you. In addition, we are in daily contact with our plants and subsidiaries to maintain our supply chain and to fulfil our obligations.
Despite the current conditions, we treat your order with the usual BACHMANN quality. Currently, we mainly assemble and produce in our European plants. Due to the stock in our European distribution centre in Gumpelstadt and the supply of raw materials in Germany and Romania we are currently able to meet our delivery times. In addition, our plant and suppliers in China are now back in full operation.
However, we would like to provide you with a forward-looking planning and point out that sooner or later there may be delays due to the advancing stronger border controls. We will keep you informed about this.

Surely you have already heard through the media about the new type of lung disease which is spread in China through the Coronavirus (2019-nCoV). As a preventive measure, we have imposed an immediate travel ban for our employees to and from Asia. At our sites in China and Hong Kong, the protective measures and rules of conduct, such as hygiene regulations for all employees, were significantly increased.
The Chinese government has taken various precautionary measures, including extending the holiday around the Chinese New Year until February 9th. As a result, our plant and external production sites were closed for longer period than expected.
Of course, we will inform all customers about the current status of their orders and try to keep our confirmed delivery dates. Since Monday, February 10th, our plant in China has resumed production with a reduced team. Furthermore, we assume that our suppliers will also reopen the plants fully in the next few days.
At the present time, the supply of raw materials and supplies for our plants in Germany and Romania is assured. We are optimistic about punctual delivery from the German and Romanian plants. If obstacles occur due to logistical peaks from China to Europe, we will do everything possible to meet the promised delivery dates by actively managing the supply chain.
