ARI-Armaturen is a global acting company doing business with customers and suppliers around the world.Content (EN) With regard to our direct sourcing strategy, China and companies headquartered in China only play a minor role, thus our core products are not affected by the currently given situation in China. Moreover, none of our direct suppliers is located in the vicinity of the named critical regions. Additionally, it is part of our philosophy to stock a high level of raw materials at our three German production sites, especially prior to holiday periods like Chinese New Year.
Therefore, we currently do not see a high risk of extensive delivery outages due to potential problems of Chinese direct suppliers.
Nevertheless, we are monitoring the development of the current situation very closely in order to react swiftly in approaching alternative suppliers if necessary.
