We hope you are safe

We hope you are safe

Dear clients,

We hope you, your family and friends are safe.

We have have been closely monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 virus situation develop from bad to worse over the past few weeks. In keeping with the guidelines from Swiss government authorities, we have taken several measures to avoid contributing to the spread of the infection within the company, as well as to avoid any production or delivery disruptions.

We can confirm that we remain fully operational during our business hours.

The Swiss government have decided to close all schools, stores and prohibit more than 5 people meeting at a time for now at least until April 4th. 

All Swiss borders are closed with immediate effect for all non-urgent or private visits to Switzerland for six months.

Internally, we have taken a number of measures, technically and logistically, to deal with the emerging challenges:

  • We have prepared our teams to work from home.
  • We have drastically scaled up the number of employees working from home.
  • Employees who feel unwell, or who have visited large gatherings or areas particularly affected, have been instructed to stay/work from home.
  • We have cancelled, until further notice, all non-essential travelling.
  • We have cancelled non-essential meetings and, where possible, replaced meetings with video-conferences.
  • We have cancelled, until further notice, all participation in non-essential meetings (internal as well as external) and gatherings.
  • We have put in place additional hygienic measures at our various office locations.

Many employees have to work from home due to the change in family situation, but everyone will be working 100% and our fulfilment team will stay intact and continue to send out thousands of orders every day.

UPS confirmed that they will continue to ship globally and deliver locally within the guaranteed delivery times in all areas including Italy.

Externally, we have sourced a large supply of biomass, filters, bottles, packaging (except for our graduated pipettes), printers, toner, paper etc. to prepare for a situation like this.

We hope to stay operational for as long as possible during the Corona-virus and until the crisis subsides.

Emergency kits will be available this week

Together with our friends in the pharmaceutical industry we are also producing more than 200.000 pcs. of medical graded hand sanitisers and 500.000 pcs. of disposable protection masks under our brand and GMP-license. Starting from this week, these emergency products will be sold at prices below market level and donated to hospitals and institutions in need.

We will keep you informed of developments on our side. 

We recommend anyone, who possible can, to stay inside for a couple of weeks with your loved ones. Focus on your body and mind. Try to boost your immune system with healthy food, plenty of sleep, CBD and supplements.

Kind regards,
All of us at Formula Swiss
