The company said in a statement, “To date, our operations have not been affected by the epidemic in terms of disruptions or delays concerning material flows or production plans. Should the epidemic affect our operations in some way, we shall promptly inform all stakeholders whom this may concern.”

Nevertheless, Bronto has restricted travel, “We have also decided to limit factory visits by international and domestic visitors alike. Only necessary material deliveries are allowed to enter the factories. We have also restricted all travelling between our own premises to keep staff and factories as protected as much as possible.”

Since the closure of schools in Finland, many Bronto employees have been working from home, which the company added, “may cause some disruptions during normal working hours. However, we will do our best to be at your disposal as usual. The health and safety of our staff, customers and partners are our top priority and we will continue to monitor the situation on a daily basis.”
