Important notice to our current and future customers:
G. Bopp + Co. AG (“Bopp”) and even their existing customers have recently noticed that online offerings of products which look similar to those of Bopp and declaring them as “Bopp” products are increasingly being introduced on online purchasing platforms. There is no doubt that these offerings infringe Bopp’s trademarks, violate unfair competition (and other) laws and seriously deceive the market participants.
Bopp have reacted and undertaken respective measures to defend and protect their rights. Considering the enormous number of violators, it seems inevitable that this process will take longer than Bopp desire.
In the meantime, Bopp would like to emphasize the following:
Products manufactured by G. Bopp + Co. AG in Zurich, Switzerland are exclusively available from its subsidiaries in Switzerland, Germany, England, Italy, Sweden, USA, Korea and China.
G. Bopp + Co. AG are one of the world’s leading producers of precision woven wire meshes providing their high-quality products to market leaders in the high tech, pharmaceutical, chemical, aeronautics, plastic, glass, ceramics, mechanical engineering, paper, environmental technology and even space travel (www.bopp.com).
We’re staying on the wire for you!
Information on BOPP’s situation during the COVID-19 pandemic
Faced with the rapid spread of COVID-19, BOPP has undertaken a number of measures in order to limit the proliferation of the virus, to protect our employees and at the same time to ensure business continuity.
At BOPP, we and our subsidiary companies take our social responsibility very seriously, complying rigorously with World Health Organisation directives as well the recommendations of our local health authorities, implementing new measures continuously.
- ...altered our working environment to enable all employees to practise social distancing
- ...provided all employees with sanitising solutions and PPE, and we disinfect key areas twice daily
- ...enabled all employees deemed to be at risk to work from home
- ...reduced visits to customer sites and customer visits to BOPP sites to an absolute minimum. This also applies to suppliers and other business partners
To date, the measures we have taken have proved effective. As a result, we have experienced only minimal effects from the coronavirus pandemic, both in terms of personnel and economic impact.
In all countries where we have subsidiaries, BOPP has ‚essential business‘ status because we supply vital sectors of the economy such as healthcare, pharmaceuticals and foodstuffs. Continuing to supply these industries during the current crisis is a top priority for us.
We are doing our very best to maintain our worldwide supply chain, and look forward to being there for you in person again as soon as possible. In the meantime, please feel free to contact us via telephone or email.
