Sufficient stocks on hand of consumables required for production operations
Xeikon, a key provider of equipment, services and consumables for digitally printed labels and packaging, today reconfirms its dedication to continuing to make critical consumables available for its presses. This enables customers to produce the documentation, labels and packaging required to get food, health and pharmaceutical products to market during the Corona crisis. As widely covered by the media, the coronavirus has impacted the health and well-being of many people in various countries around the world.

As you are aware, the Corona-Virus (COVID-19) is spreading rapidly throughout the world and many countries have issued new directives in the past days in a response to the status of a pandemic. Many borders have been closed in Europe and in the America’s. We would like to re-assure you that Focus Label Machinery is, also within these extraordinary circumstances, actively working on the situation to secure all deliveries in order to minimise the impact it could have on your operations. This includes a regular re-scoping of daily events to keep up to date with current developments. We already put in place several preventive actions internally and with our suppliers to minimise effects in the future.
