Our manufacturing facilities in Zhongshan and Debao reported this week that our workforce, thus our manufacturing capabilities, have steadily increased and we are now close to 75%. We are expecting further increases in the next 2-3 weeks.
The majority of our critical raw material vendor/supplier community have now reopened and are at roughly 50% of capacity. Transportation and movement of both raw materials and finished goods in and out of the factories and out of China have improved. The overall business environment in China is improving; at the same time worldwide challenges have cropped up as various countries lock down borders in an effort to defeat the spread of the virus.
Although the HALO manufacturing plants are steadily gaining production capacity the situation remains fluid as we are now dealing with the virus’s effect on the Global business environment.
It will likely be several weeks before we are caught up on all critical customer shipments.
The entire HALO Team would like to thank you, our most valued customers, for your patience while we work through the COVID-19 virus issues and keep our workers safe and healthy. We, as has been our practice throughout this difficult time, will continue to communicate and update
you as more information becomes available.
