In order to ensure open, transparent and accurate information to our customers during this challenging time, Sabik Offshore will regularly update this webpage with relevant information. Our primary concern is the wellbeing of our employees followed by the continuity of our supply of goods and services to our customers. We have therefore implemented the following measures:
Production will continue but on a shift basis to limit the number of people in any area at any one time.
All employees in the Edinburgh office will be working from home.
Minimal staff will operate the Copenhagen/Glostrup office. Those present will be spread over the premises to minimise any risk of infection. All remaining Copenhagen/Glostrup staff will work from home.
In Schwerin R&D, sales, marketing, HR / QM and process management staff will work from home as far as possible. Service, production, general administration, accounting, purchasing & logistics and the project team will work in the office but will be spread over the premises to minimise any risk of infection.
All physical meetings are postponed, cancelled or moved to online platforms such as Skype. All travel is cancelled until further notice.
At present, production capability is normal and confirmed orders will continue to be fulfilled. New orders are being accepted. We are in constant communication with our supply chain and do expect some delays in the coming weeks. Suitable alternatives are being investigated where necessary and specific delays to active projects will be communicated directly to those who are impacted.
We will strictly follow the recommendations of the relevant authorities at all times. Please check this webpage regularly for updates.
