Changes to the previous day are marked in italics.Status: igus currently delivers without restrictions from the Cologne warehouse and all other warehouses worldwide. We do not see any impairment of the supply chains at present. In most countries and the Cologne headquarters, large parts of the employees still work in the home office to prevent infection. In all public areas, the wearing of face masks is mandatory.


igus is actively monitoring the evolving situation regarding the outbreak of Covid-19 (coronavirus) and will make decisions accordingly based on the below outlined actions. igus meet the current definition of 'Essential Business' and have remained open for business, with the below implemented relevant countermeasures including:

  • Protecting the wellbeing of all employees and their families as our primary focus.
  • Considering the potential social impact by supporting the prevention and / or containment of the situation.
  • Making every effort to continuously provide the services and products required by our customers.
  • Providing support and assistance to maintain business relationships
  • Home working where feasible

We are actively putting in place business continuity plans to mitigate any potentially negative impact that may be caused by the spread of Covid-19 on igus personnel or on-site igus staff working at customer locations.  igus has invested heavily in creating a resilient and flexible infrastructure to support our ability to adapt to different working circumstances and we will make every effort to continue to deliver excellent service levels to our customers as the situation evolves and ensure that deliveries are not affected.
