Statement from HP:
We would like to provide an update on HP’s efforts to address the supply chain challenges resulting from the Coronavirus outbreak. While the situation remains fluid, we see positive trends and will keep working to quickly address the situation as conditions continue to improve.
As of Tuesday, February 19, most HP factories in the affected area are back up and running (with a few exceptions, including in Wuhan) and we have secured air freight capacity to help expedite deliveries abroad. Our efforts are now focused on increasing productivity in each factory, working closely with our component suppliers and getting all factories re-opened and operating at full capacity. Order status and potential delays on existing customer orders continue to be reflected in HP systems and will be regularly updated.
As always, the well-being of our employees, our partners and customers and their families is our number one priority. We will continue to monitor the situation very closely and are responding in real-time to customer and partner inquiries. Please refer any questions regarding specific orders via your normal HP channels.
