As a Chinese company, Frichy was among the first to experience the widespread impact of Coronavirus.
The award-winning tools manufacturer, which has an expansive international customer base, had to watch as the virus spread from its domestic market into a global pandemic.
But the company, based in Jiangsu Province, has not been idle. It has taken the opportunity to plan ahead and make sure it exits this unprecedented time in as good a shape as possible.
“It is a tough time for most companies, especially those that rely mainly on international trade,” says CEO Jackie Fan. “Some of our customer sales channels are closed.
“But it is also a period for our company to organise our whole structure, to enhance our supply chain management, to reassess our R&D direction and to look at how we can improve future cooperation with customers as the economy gradually returns to normal.
“Now we are in April, some of our customers have begun communicating over a new plan for June and July sales. It has been a good time to think and prepare for the future.
“Our production has returned to normal now and our workers are operating as usual. It is difficult, but we have confidence that all will recover and return to normal soon.”
