Safeguarding production despite the threat of gas shortages

July 15, 2022

Dear Customers,

The Russia-Ukraine conflict has far-reaching effects on the security of our supply of natural gas, which we use as an energy source. For this reason, we are informing you about the current situation at Würth Elektronik Circuit Board Technology.

A crisis team has been set up under the leadership of the management to counteract any possible negative effects of the supply situation and to initiate effective measures.

In our German production plants for printed circuit boards, we currently require natural gas as an energy source for heat and processes. We have started to switch this energy requirement to alternative energy sources. From today's perspective, we expect to be largely independent of natural gas in a few weeks. We are already able to compensate for a reduced supply of natural gas with the measures already taken.

However, should there be a complete discontinuation of natural gas supplies in the short term, this would have an enormous impact on our production capacity.

At present, we are able to supply our production plants with sufficient energy and are working flat out to produce your printed circuit boards.

We will inform you as soon as the situation changes.

Yours faithfully,

Würth Elektronik GmbH & Co. KG
