H.C. Starck Tungsten Powders COVID-19 Statement

Goslar, March 31, 2020. During the last few days we have received an increasing number of enquiries from customers and suppliers who wish to know about the possible implications of the COVID-19 pandemic on H.C. Starck Tungsten Powders’ ability to supply tungsten products.

From today's perspective, our business activities continue as usual, while we continue to carefully monitor and assess the situation. We have taken several measures to curtail the spread of the virus and to limit its potential impacts on our business. In the event of increasing cases of illnesses, H.C. Starck Tungsten Powders has detailed contingency plans to deal with employees' absence and to maintain production levels. Furthermore, we operate sites in Europe, North America and China that have the ability to serve as a backup or provide additional materials. We will do our best to ensure your supply and to minimize the impact of risks from external influences, such as authorities‘ directives.

However, the situation remains very fluid and will need to be reassessed continuously. Thus, we would like to remain in close contact with you as our business partner, to share and exchange information. Please do not hesitate to contact us, if you have any questions.
