Following the French Presidents TV-speech on March 17 and general French Governmental recommendations and regulations the situation in France has yesterday developed to a more or less complete shutdown of all activities, inclusive of our manufacturing facilities for marine engines which is situated in the city of Mulhouse. Mitsubishi Europe has as a result of this declared Force Majeure on any delay that may occur as a result of these unforeseen events.
Customers of ourselves to whom we may have scheduled deliveries that could be affected, if any, will be informed separately and without delay.
Stay tuned and stay optimistic.
Power House is fully operative in all aspects but due to governmental restrictions, both Swedish and foreign, we may in some aspects be limited in our ability to travel abroad. Any customer in need for our services outside of Sweden are still requested to contact us at email@example.com and we will assist in sourcing the needed assistance through our network of associated dealers, agents and service centers locally.
There are no known shortages to spare parts and there are no known delays in production at the present. Should anything occur, we will immediately inform anyone concerned.
As from mid last week, Power House have assigned our employees in “redundant groups” with the aim to remain fully operative even if or when Covid-19 affects also ourselves. Most colleagues now work on a distance, typically from home, aside from those needed to handle daily tasks, spare parts deliveries or manufacturing. Also on those positions however, we have divided ourselves to redundant groups that currently do not attend the facilities at the same time and hence have the ability to fill out if anyone gets ill in a period.
We appreciate like always to get visitors to our premises – nothing has changed there. For a period though we ask you to pre-announce your attendance in order for us to organize the welcoming in accordance with our current routines.
This pandemic situation is quite rare, to say the least, and very unpleasant due to all unknown factors. At the current it feels most important to protect societies elder people and people with any respiratory diseases in order to delay the spread and hope for the hospital capacities to remain available to those in need for emergency care if infected. We do our utmost to follow these and all other governmental recommendations but at the same time also to keep the wheels turning. There definitely is a tomorrow and hopefully it´s not all that far away either!
Beware of each other out there! Common sense is all we got.
