Information on the Corona pandemic and its impact in Malaysia

Dear customer,

We are still in the middle of the Corona pandemic with a global impact.

This pandemic has led to a number of measures being taken by the government in the affected countries. Among other things, some affected countries and regions have already imposed exit restrictions and also temporary plant closures, depending on the current number of cases.

The government of Malaysia has decided to enforce the Enhanced Movement Control Order that commences from 1st of June, 2021 until probably the 14th of June, 2021. This Control Order is made under the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act 1988 and Police Act 1967. With this Malaysian government regulation, Malaysian companies are required to limit their workforce to 10% during the above mentioned period for the protection of their employees, their families and the entire Malaysian population.

This restriction has a direct impact on production capacities, transport, customs clearance and the company's own supply of raw materials, among other things. Products of Würth Elektronik eiSos GmbH & Co. KG are also manufactured in Malaysia. Therefore, it is possible that this regulation will also have an impact on the production and supply of products of Würth Elektronik eiSos GmbH & Co. KG.

Currently, we are not able to estimate how long this event will last, but within the scope of our business relationship we will of course keep you informed about the further development of this exceptional situation and its impact for our delivery capacity.

Nevertheless, we ask for your understanding at this point, that during this current event of force majeure, we may not be able to deliver some products to you within the originally agreed or the otherwise usual and expected period.

Due to the fact that this is an event of force majeure, we must reject any blanket demand for payment of any costs and damages attributable to the effects of the Corona pandemic.

We are continuing to monitor the situation in Malaysia and are in close contact with our productions in order to be able to take appropriate measures in the event of supply situations worsening.

Should the information and procurement situation for certain products change significantly, we will of course inform you on an individual and product-related basis as soon as possible.
