Statement COVID-19

Riesa, March 25th, 2020
Dear valued partners,
dear customers, 
 
In light of the recent COVID-19 developments in Europe and throughout the world, we would like to give you a short update on GIERTH X-Ray international GmbH’s business.
 
First of all, the current situation led us to implement all the essential measures to protect the health of our employees, customers and partners. Throughout the rapidly changing development of this crisis GIERTH observes and follows all applicable government recommendations and restrictions constantly and adjusts to new developments regularly.
 
We would like to state the following on our business continuity arrangements for today and which might change rapidly as events unfold:
  • For now, our receiving and production departments are fully operational. Since no one knows about future developments this might change unexpectedly. In case of unexpected changes, we will inform you as soon as possible. 
  • We will be available regularly via our landline +49 3525 51 24 59 and email info@gierth-x-ray.de. In case of any urgent matters, our digital support can be reached via +49 172 7 98 67 40. This will remain until further notice.
  • We are still processing orders and are able to ship goods as long as our logistic partners are working. We kindly ask you to understand that there might be slight delays in shipment durations. As an additional precautionary measure, the surfaces of ordered products will be disinfected before shipments.
  • In case our subcontractors and suppliers will reduce their businesses, unfortunately, this will affect us and might lead to restrictive business developments for us as well. 
  • All unnecessary business travels are suspended until further notice.
  • In case you are planning to visit our facility, we respectfully ask you to postpone that until after the restrictions.
Be assured that GIERTH is making all possible and reasonable efforts to honor its commitments and mitigate the unpredictable consequences of this exceptional situation. GIERTH undertakes to strictly monitor the above action plans and to come back to you regularly, in particular in the event of proven difficulty.
 
Thank you very much in advance for understanding and please be assured we will do our best to keep everyone safe.
 
Please do not hesitate to contact us in case of any further questions. 
 
We hope you all stay healthy and I wish you all the best in these difficult times.

On March 12th-13th, 2020 the workshop weekend for farriers and veterinarians in Sirnach, Switzerland, took place again and was organized by the Wehrli Equine Podiatry Academy (WEPA).

X-Ray unit for Turtle Island

Did you know that 60 % of turtle species have either already gone extinct or are on the brink of extinction? 10 turtle (sub)species have gone extinct in recent years already. To counteract this sad development the breeding and rescue center Turtle Island was founded in Graz, Austria.

We are more than happy to support this project by donating a GIERTH X-Ray unit HFX90V, which has been delivered to the facilities of Turtle Island in February 2020. We hope this will help examining endangered turtle species and other animals in the center.

“Turtle Island combines a scientifically-managed conservation breeding center, including attractive and modern public displays, with indigenous landscapes, creative art, research, education and recreation.” By donating this X-Ray unit, we want to support and enhance these goals.

Do you want to help this project as well? Please go to https://www.turtle-island.at/ for more information.
