Sun Chemical will continue to monitor its supply chain, including raw material and intermediate suppliers and logistics providers, amid the coronavirus outbreak.
“Proactively managing our customer orders, inventory levels, in-transit shipments and open order levels is a critical path for us,” said Jeffrey Shaw, chief supply chain officer, Sun Chemical. “We have established control teams to manage each of these areas and take the required precautions in order to prevent any supply disruptions. Specifically focusing on individual materials and suppliers will enable us to take any necessary precautions.
“At this time, our focus also includes materials from China and other high risk regions that supply to us. We will continue to keep our customers updated during this process.
