Cooper Lighting Solution said in its “Coronavirus Update” that due to travel and strict logistics management enacted by Chinese authorities, some of its suppliers have not resumed mass production until now.

Meanwhile, Cooper Lighting also said that it would increase its local manufacturing capabilities in North America with local inventory of components and materials.

Satco also has sent an open letter to its customers about the coronavirus situation in China. Some government management requirements, such as strict traffic controls and quarantine requirements for 14 days for workers traveling back to work from other area such as Hubei province, will cause lack of work force foreseen even when factories resume mass production.
