On behalf of Ammet, I would like to express our deepest concern and sympathy for those who have been affected by COVID-19。 The current situation of the epidemic is very serious and its impact is unprecedented. All parts of the world, including Ammette, are actively responding to it。 Like many other organizations, we have been rapidly adjusting our working patterns and the way we serve our customers to ensure that we can do all we can to stop the spread of the coronavirus and minimize its impact on our stakeholders。
First, we proactively take multiple measures to protect the health and safety of our team, while actively following best practices and guidelines from local government agencies and authorities。 The use of remote working when necessary and the adoption of flexible working hours to minimize human interaction and reduce travel have been encouraging. We will remain vigilant in our efforts to protect our employees and their families, as well as the communities they live and serve。
From a business perspective, we have made and will continue to make changes to our business to serve our customers more effectively in these challenging times, such as providing our expert team services through various electronic platforms。 Our production continues around the world and we have a network of factories in China, Southeast Asia, Europe and the Americas to meet our customers' needs。
Regarding our supply chain, we have experienced some disruptions in the supply of raw materials in the past few months due to surging demand。 To date, although supplies of some raw materials remain tight and have had some impact, we are working closely with suppliers to ensure that all needs are met。 In order to ensure that we have served all our customers over the past few months, we have been very flexible in our mode of transport and have switched from land and sea transport to air transport where necessary。 We will continue to be alert to all market changes and remain flexible in the form that keeps our supply chain running。 We expect that current market conditions are likely to persist over the next few months。
We encourage customers and suppliers around the world to communicate closely with their Ammet contacts so that we can better understand your business needs and challenges。 Together, we can develop solutions to help mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on your business and continue to provide you with the highest level of service。
Finally, we strongly urge our employees and business partners around the world to continue to follow all recommended safety procedures and work together to prevent the spread of COVID-19。
Thank you for your support and stay safe!
Chief Executive Officer, Ammet
