SIP Scootershop Corona Update on our own behalf

Created by Ralf Jodl at 17:03 on March 26, 2020

Dear customers, 

on 4 January first news reports appeared on 44 people suffering from mysterious pneumonia. At that time, it was not known whether the disease was caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi or toxins. From this small breeze in central China a worldwide monster storm has developed, of consequences no one can escape from. We all observe the development of the corona virus every day. These are strange times. We follow the recommendations of the authorities and take preventive measures to protect our fellow human beings. The health of our customers and employees has top priority and is at the forefront of all our considerations.

We would like to give you a look behind the scenes, how we at SIP Scootershop are dealing with the crisis, how our customers and suppliers all over the world are doing.

First of all we reorganized a lot of processes in our company. Our SIPERIA had to be closed, for us from the team as well as for guests from outside. Tenant Salvatore, who runs another Italian restaurant in Landsberg, supplies us with the necessary calories in the form of pizza and pasta. We have divided our warehouse team into groups that work strictly separated from each other. In case of infection the whole team should not be affected. Distance between all of us is the order of the day anyway. Actually it is very familiar and friendly in our company in mormal times, people talk and hug each other - to do without that still feels very strange. At all office workplaces we have built protected "cages" from cardboard boxes to protect the employees in the best possible way. A number of employees now work from home in their home office and it works surprisingly well. If you call us at the moment the chances are good that you are mot ending up here in Landsberg but in a private living room.... There are special safety precautions in contact with the delivery services and suppliers, disinfectants are available, how to wash your hands properly everybody knows anyway since a while.


How are our suppliers, customers and business partners doing?
