CEO’s statement for COVID 19 outbreaksixma
Dear all valued customers,
In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, we, at Silicon Craft Technology (SIC), have implemented strategic initiatives as part of the company’s business continuity plan (BCP) to ensure that disruptions to your business are minimized. Internally within SIC’s organization, we are rigorously taking all means necessary to prevent potential infections. Also, we are adopting additional precautionary measures that are in line with the recommendations from local authorities to ensure our employees, supply chain, and services remain as unaffected as possible.
SIC, in partnership with our local suppliers, is continuing to operate as “Business As Usual” mode from our customer’s perspective. Thus, regular business hours apply. Based on regulatory updated situations, which stipulate the workplace to practice Social Distancing and other procedures, employees who support Operations have begun to “Work From Home” starting March 24th, 2020.
Risk management is of utmost importance; therefore, we are monitoring the global and local conditions, and diligently assessing partnering manufacturers’ situations to unceasingly manufacture and produce goods or products for us. We do have a couple of suppliers located outside Thailand under nation-wide Restriction of Movement Orders from 18 March 2020; currently lasting until 31 March 2020.
In this regard, SIC is working with our courier and freight forwarders, accordingly, to mitigate and minimize any potential disruptions to our shipments. In addition, with the cancelation of the annual Songkran (Thai New Year) from the Thailand Government in April, SIC will subsequently resume regular business operations. We encourage you to work with our staff to fulfil your shipments and meet your forecasts.
Our customer service/customer engineering/field application teams will be supporting you with any specific information you may require. We will continue to give you updates as quickly as possible. If any of the situations or impact arises, we will develop associated contingency plans and propose them to you.
Thank you very much for the continued support and trust you put in SIC.
With Best Regards,
Silicon Craft Technology Public Company Limited
