In view of the current events related to COVID-19, we would like to inform you of the measures taken to protect the health of our employees and partners, while guaranteeing deliveries to our customers.
Reinforced hygiene rules are applied within Tornos and we have implemented additional measures to limit the number of people present at the same time in each department (staggered working hours, teleworking, etc.), our work areas have been reorganized to limit contact as much as possible. Thus, our production and internal services remain fully operational. Our sales engineers, application technicians and product managers are always available by telephone or email.
As far as our supplies are concerned, we had largely anticipated and everything has been put in place to face this difficult period calmly with the guarantee of having all the necessary stocks of supplies and raw materials. Our stocks of machines are now in place and we are ready to serve you.
We thank you for your confidence and wish you to spend this troubled period in the best conditions.

Coronavirus: Tornos stops production in Switzerland
Moutier, Switzerland, March 20, 2020
Dear customers, dear partners,
Tornos is committed to ensuring the health and safety of its employees, partners, customers and the public. We have a responsibility to help slow the spread of the pandemic and to continue to assist our customers wherever possible.
From Monday, March 23, 2020, Tornos will suspend production in Switzerland, beginning with an initial two week period. With this measure, we are responding to the acceleration significant to the rate of infection caused by COVID-19 and to the resulting measures implemented by the Swiss authorities.
We will only be able to overcome the pandemic by acting together and by taking measures to protect our workforce and reduce the spread of COVID-19. In this context, we will suspend all activities in Moutier and La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, until April 6, 2020.
In general, we remain at your disposal for any urgent questions. Our service activity in Switzerland remains available by e-mail and telephone at the usual contact details.
We hope to return to normal activity as soon as safely possible and we thank you all for your understanding.
Your Tornos team
