Stable supply chain situation in India

We still monitor the worldwide pandemic development carefully. Especially the situation in India as they are facing high Covid-19 infection rates right now.

The Indian government tries to avoid a general lockdown at any circumstances. The current partial lockdowns in place are regional in nature and have more to do with restrictions on local public gatherings. But all businesses are open and the overall situation in India is getting better.

Employee health is our top priority. Therefore we keep the hygiene in the premises at a high level.

hubergroup production facilities in India are running smoothly. Our material procurement, transportation and dispatches are on schedule. Sufficient material back up are in place to bridge supply breaks. We are also prepared for several scenarios in case of certain upcoming restrictions.

In this rapidly changing scenario we still remain optimistic. Our efforts in keeping the precaution measures high makes us confident that we can maintain our supply chain.

Statement concerning the current supply chain situation

In many European countries a slight recovery of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic is taking place. Other regions are still in a critical phase. The emergency plan will remain in force at all hubergroup locations until further notice in order to protect our employees and maintain delivery reliability.

The supply situation on the raw materials side remains tight. We continue to keep a very close eye on our supply chain and make intensive use of our global supplier network. We are also using our global presence to compensate for possible local bottlenecks.

We want to thank all our employees, customers and partners for their particularly high level of commitment in these special times.

Situation in India – after announced shutdown

The Indian government yesterday announced extensive measures to stop the spread of SARS-CoV-2. Public life shall be shut down for 21 days.

hubergroup operates major production plants in India. We immediately contacted the local authorities to draw attention to the importance of our products for packaging printing and the global supply of everyday consumer goods. The aim is to receive a certificate of exception and to resume production quickly.

Our global supply chain is designed in such a way that we are able to compensate several weeks of production loss of the Indian plants without an interruption in delivery to our customers. Nevertheless, we are preparing for alternative scenarios in this situation: these include increasing volumes with qualified alternative suppliers.
