Business continuity plans in response to COVID-19

Customers rely on Avantor to manufacture and deliver essential products, especially during these uncertain times. We are taking the necessary steps to minimize disruption and we will continue to provide updates as appropriate.

We have formed a cross-functional Steering Committee that is driving a swift and collaborative response across our global business. The team is assessing the situation daily and adjusting actions as needed so that we continue meeting the critical needs of our customers.

We are actively engaged with our customers and suppliers to understand supply and needs. We have set in motion business continuity plans at our facilities to provide manufacturing and delivery of critical materials. We are monitoring decisions made by governments, countries and other companies that may impact business continuity.

Our teams are working diligently to adapt to these new measures in an effort to mitigate any adverse impact they may have on the free flow of products to our customers. If such a disruption occurs, we believe our business continuity plans will be effective in most conceivable situations. At the same time, we remain deeply committed to the safety and well-being of our employees.

We will work to share updates regarding product availability and the status of our distribution and production operations with customers.
