Important notification regarding the coronavirus outbreak

Berner would like to inform you as your business partner for high quality protective clothing on an urgent matter:

As a result of the coronavirus outbreak in China, a situation has also arisen in Europe which, for the time being, does not allow us to handle the large number of inquiries, calls and orders in relation to respiratory masks in the usual way.

This applies to our entire range of FFP-2 and FFP-3 respiratory masks and medical face masks. For these articles the stocks are either exhausted or only very small quantities are available. Our suppliers for these products are currently unable to make any reliable statements as to when the requested order quantities will be available. Due to their dependence on the development in China, it is also impossible for all market participants to predict when the situation will ease or get back to a normal level. Rather, a further worsening of the global supply bottlenecks is currently to be expected.

Furthermore, in this situation, we will also have to make concessions in terms of purchase prices, as the prices of all items have risen dramatically due to the high demand.

Therefore, we would like to ask you for your urgent assistance:

Please send any orders or inquiries for all respiratory protection articles only to the e-mail address which we have created for this purpose. We will collect all incoming e-mails here and, as soon as we are able to supply you with remaining stocks or new incoming goods, we will inform you of the possible quantities, the price and delivery conditions. With your return confirmation, the goods will be subsequently delivered to you accordingly.

Due to the current market situation and the enormous demand a confirmation is absolutely necessary within 24 hours - otherwise we will distribute the goods to other customers.

For other personal protective equipment from our product range, the delivery situation is not yet critical. You can still obtain these articles from us in the usual quotas through the normal ordering channels. However, as long as the coronavirus outbreak cannot be contained, a shortage cannot be ruled out here either.

We ask for your understanding, that in this exceptional situation we cannot fulfil your wishes in the usual manner. We are doing everything to improve this situation and will inform you as comprehensively as possible.

On behalf of the entire Berner-Team we thank you for your understanding.
