Scheduling buffers are set up in front of each manufacturing process to help synchronize the workload and build in flexibility to absorb unexpected changes and delays. If there’s a delay on our end, we'll go to great lengths to get it back on track before we offer you alternative solutions. We strive to communicate schedule alterations as far upstream as possible and give you options that you can work with. On-Time-Delivery is a criteria customers look for in a reliable supplier. We are dedicated to the commitments we make to our customers.
Wherever indicated in our sales term, the "Lead Time / Delivery Time" will be the period in which the order will get ready to be passed on to the shipping department. This excludes the shipping period from pick up point to final destination as it is stated in the salescontract - unless otherwise agreed upon.
While every effort is made to ensure that all items offered are available for immediate dispatch, called "Standard lead time", some goods may be produced to customer's order / specification, and dispatch will take longer.
QUALITY, SERVICE, INTEGRITY & ENVIRONMENT
We fundamentally pursue to
Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 came into force on June 01, 2007 and sets forth terms for the Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemical substances ( REACH ) manufactured in, or imported into the European Union (EU) above one ton per year.
All our operating Business Units are committed to ensure to pre-register all phase-in substances of products whether manufactured or sold by us to insure uninterrupted business.
Exceptions will be identified on an individual basis, and we will of course notify you should the REACH requirements cause us to decide not to register or seek authorization of substances that are part of any product that we sell to you - in such cases, we will endeavor to provide you a notice prior to the relevant substance deadlines.
Many of the details required for compliance will only be clear once the final Technical Guidance documents have been published.
We will follow-up all new developments on REACH and will evaluate the impact on our respective products with the goal to make the transition to the new legislation as smooth as possible for our customers.
