Dear Customers and Partners,
Due to current situation with the spread of the Sars-CoV-2 (“Coronavirus”) we want to share with you the latest information on how Taros Chemicals have prepared for both, the protection of our employees and partners’ health and the uninterrupted continuation of our chemistry and discovery services to our clients.
In order to maintain our high quality service under the new conditions, we have adjusted our standard operating procedures as well as tightened our safety instructions accordingly for both, administrative and scientific lab staff.
Although shift times and office hours have been redesigned, Taros Chemicals’ teams are committed to delivering to our customers all projects at expected level of quality.
We acknowledge that these mandatory adjustments to the regular work mode may lead to some extended response times or delivery timelines.
However, all customers and partners will be informed in a timely manner should their respective projects face such impact.
For any additional information you’d be requesting relating to your current or future projects, please contact your Taros Key Account Manager for further assistance.
Again, Taros Chemicals would like to thank you for the excellent collaboration and trust that you have placed in our chemistry services since 1999.
With best wishes
Your Taros Chemicals Team
