Apart from the production plant which is running properly at SECO, what about the impact on shipments?

Having its own production plants, thus managing all operations, currently SECO is manufacturing and shipping goods regularly. 


Are there any restrictions/limitations for carriers (FedEx, UPS, etc.)? Can they move freely within Italy, cross borders within the EU and International borders?

The Italian government decree has not placed any limitation on ground cargo on Italian soil and international hubs.


Are there delays in the supply chain, for instance with goods coming from China?

There can be some delays for components coming from Asia, but currently there is no impact on manufacturing. A SECO dedicated team is monitoring the situation continuously while we activate multiple points of sourcing.


Are you able to communicate delays?

For the time being our delivery plans are generally unvaried, however these can be verified through your sales contact.
