The beginning of 2020 brought with it extreme turmoil in the global economy that nobody had expected. The global spread of the novel corona virus caused significant delays along the entire supply chain of the bicycle industry.
We are all the more pleased that the demand for bicycles and parts has increased enormously in the past few weeks as a result of the lifting of opening restrictions on specialist retailers and the rediscovery of bicycles by a large part of the population.
There is a realistic chance for all industry participants to make up for the sales losses of the past few weeks and to be long-winded winners of this crisis.
Unfortunately, the exponentially increasing demand and the associated order volume are currently causing delays in delivery. Our expanded and modernized logistics help us to cope with the very short-term exponential increase in demand and the associated order volume. Nevertheless, there may be temporary delays in delivery. We naturally try to keep this as low as possible.
We thank you for your understanding and wish everyone a successful season.
We ask for your understanding that until further notice we will minimize customers and suppliers visits in order to reduce your and our health risks.
Fairs and exhibitions:
All end consumer, industrial and in-house trade fairs as well as exhibitions up to August 31, 2020 were officially prohibited.
Company visits to Baunach headquarters:
Factory visits are currently not possible.
Avoidance of undeliverable items:
Please let us know if you plan to close your goods receipt. You can thus help us to avoid deliveries that cannot be delivered at short notice at additional costs.
We will inform you about further changes and wish you, your families, employees and colleagues all the best and health!
