Extended delivery lead times during the global corona pandemic

Dear valued customers


In the course of the global effects of the corona pandemic, we are currently facing extended delivery lead times for our entire product range.


This is due to the hygiene and safety regulations in the production processes as well as the current high demand in the markets for electronic components and the resulting increased order volume.


Besides, there are currently significant delays in incoming freight due to a shortage of capacities/ containers and an overload of airports/ seaports.


Therefore, there can be a change of shipping schedule at any time even it is confirmed and extend the standard lead times known to you, unfortunately.


Even if we have already taken action to build up our inventory, we strongly recommend you to place orders for required parts at least 6 months in advance to reduce the risk of a shortage.


We apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.


If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.


Sincerely yours,




Tetsuo Amamoto

Managing Director
