Dear customers,

As you all know Europe has been hit by the covid-19 virus.

Therefore Saint-Louis factory is now closed for two weeks time. However, the customer service department and the International Commercial team will remain at your disposal anytime.

Of course you can continue to place orders even if the production will be delayed by at least 2 weeks.

I thank you for your understanding and your support. We will, of course, keep you informed of the evolution of the situation.


Yours sincerely,

Charles-Henri LEROY
