EM Acoustics Issues Coronavirus Update

FOH Staff • International News • March 18, 2020

U.K. – EM Acoustics’ operations director Mike Wheeler issued a mid-March update on the company’s status during the Coronavirus pandemic.

More details from EM Acoustics (www.emacoustics.com):

As with many businesses in the UK, we are closely monitoring the current public health challenge linked to the Coronavirus, and we are following advice and applying procedures recommended by the WHO and Public Health England with regard to health and hygiene. The following summary provides an overview of our current response to the developing situation and how this might affect you.

Supply Chain and Raw Materials

Since we source very few of our components in South East Asia, our exposure to supply chain disruption from China is extremely minimal. Additionally we understand that Chinese manufacturing has resumed to near normal levels, and so we do not anticipate any significant negative effects on our supply chain.

Although restrictions on the movement of goods in Europe, and particularly Italy, is now of concern, we do have considerable reserve stocks of components that will allow us to complete current production schedules without disruption.

Manufacturing and Product Deliveries

At the present time, we have no staffing issues and our manufacturing schedules are operating as normal. We are therefore able to fulfill all orders for the forseeable future without significant delay. However with new government policies being implemented at short notice we will continue to monitor and heed expert advice, and will notify you of any changes to our activities.

Trade Shows

We are scheduled to participate as planned in the next important UK tradeshow, PLASA Focus Leeds on 12-13 May. Following that we will be exhibiting at ABTT in June and PLASA London in September where we look forward to welcoming you; for a full listing of our upcoming trade shows for 2020 please click here.

We will continue to monitor the situation daily and will always act in the best interests of the health of our customers, staff, suppliers, and their families. Stay safe and please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns. -Mike Wheeler, Operations Director
