Coronavirus Update – February 5, 2020

February 5, 2020 – L&L Products is closely monitoring the events that are unfolding globally as a result of the Coronavirus (2019-nCoV.) outbreak.  While our thoughts and concerns are with those directly affected by the outbreak, we seek to do our part in helping to prevent further spread of the virus. We are taking reasonable precautions consistent with numerous multinational companies, including many international automakers and their suppliers, by imposing travel restrictions for all employees worldwide.

Although media coverage is abundant on the subject, we recommend referencing the most accurate and up-to-date information regarding the Coronavirus at The Center for Disease Control and Prevention at www.cdc.gov or the World Health Organization at www.who.int.

The Chinese government has issued a notice extending the Resuming Date of business until February 10th, at the earliest, for the following: AnHui, Guangdong, Jiangsu, Shanghai, Zhejiang, Jiangxi, Fujian, Heilongjiang, Shandong, Yunnan, Chongqing, Jilin Baicheng. Because of this, our employees in China are not permitted by law to enter our main facility, located in the Shanghai district. We will keep you updated on further extensions as information becomes available.

We do realize that there are concerns related to global supply chains. We want to assure you that we are actively working to mitigate these risks. Because of similar operating circumstances for companies operating within China, we do not believe that the closure of our Chinese facility will be the cause of any delays in that region. For raw ingredients generally sourced in China, we have taken measures at each of L&L’s facilities to ensure supply in anticipation of the interruption in China. Based on our current supply and Resume Date, L&L facilities outside of China do not anticipate any significant impact on production.

Our leadership and global sourcing teams are in close communication with our principal partners to obtain regular updates on the status of the situation to best meet our customer’s needs. Please check back for the most current information regarding any foreseeable delay.
