Coronavirus (COVID-19) Impact on the Supply Chain

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Impact on the Supply ChainTo our Valued Customers and Associates:

We understand the growing concerns surrounding the coronavirus and how it may impact the continuity of products we supply.

Sonepar remains in contact with our manufacturing partners as they monitor and assess the situation and, when possible, reconfigure their manufacturing and supply chains to minimize potential disruption in the supply of finished goods. We are asking the important questions, including those related to plant capacities in China, potential risk of longer lead times, logistical/transportation impacts and overall supply chain disruption, and will provide additional updates as new information becomes available.

  • Promoting continued awareness through communications and other appropriate resources
  • Implementing onsite preventative measures

If you have any questions, please contact your local operating company or Sonepar USA vendor relations representative.
