RE: APCT Impact from Coronavirus (COVID-19)
To: Our Valued Customers,
We have been starting to field many questions regarding the COVID-19 virus and how it has or might impact our Printed Circuit Board manufacturing capabilities. The obvious concerns have been directed as follows:
- Has the Coronavirus currently impacted your supply chain process and/or your ability to meet delivery and production schedules?
- Do you predict any future disruptions?
I thought it best to get out in front of this and inform all our customers what we are currently and potentially see coming from this difficult condition. The Raw Material supply chain has been impacted from laminates and pre-pregs manufactured in mainland China, from which we source only a small percentage of our raw materials.
APCT has made significant investments to bolster inventory and to date the impact has been minimal. We expect to see some minor volatility for another 30-60 days but remain confident that we will continue to meet our commitments.
Our Domestic manufacturing facilities and Global Program remain fully operational and capable to support your requirements. Please feel free to reach out to any of my Domestic or Global team if any issues or concerns arise.
We appreciate your partnership and the opportunity to earn your trust.
Steve Robinson – President/CEO
