Dear business partners,
The corona pandemic is a new challenge for all of us, in particular for the global healthcare sector. Numerous customers of ours from the areas of medicine technology, biotechnology, pharmaceutics, and research – and thus BGS as a partner and provider of sterilization services – have a special responsibility during these times: Our joint task is to provide supplies.
We would like to assure you as customers and business partners: At BGS, we are doing everything to make sure your orders are processed as quickly as possible and in the usual high quality. To this end, we have expanded our production capacities in the last weeks by reloading cobalt-60 at our gamma facility in Wiehl, we have established additional shifts, and increased among other things, the utilization for irradiation of medical consumables and in-vitro diagnostics by 25 to 30%.
Based on recommendations of the RKI (Robert Koch Institute) and the respective recommendations of operative pandemic planning, we have taken extensive preventative measures concerning the coronavirus. Our priorities are to protect our employees against an infection and to reduce the risk of an interruption of operations to a minimum. At the moment, the measures we are taking put us in a position to act and deliver to the fullest extent. We continue to observe the situation closely and will adjust our measures at short notice if need be.
Your contact person and our staff members from customer service are at your disposal and will be happy to answer any further queries.
Let us work together to deal with this exceptional situation in the best way possible – we are grateful for the trust you have placed in us.
