Coronavirus update


Due to the ongoing shutdown in China, Group Gear would like to keep you informed of how the disruption could affect YOU.

China has been in lock-down, manufacture has ground to a halt and it will be a slow
process to get workers back into the factories & catch-up with the workload.

Although here at Group Gear we plan for the Chinese New Year shutdown by increasing our stock levels, we do foresee lead-times being extended by at least one month. If the situation worsens, we could see product lines depleted.

To minimise disruption to you, we recommend: -

  • Checking your stock levels
  • Reviewing your upcoming projects
  • Order now to ensure all your stock requirements are fulfilled
  • Order early, avoid disappointment


“The situation in China seems to be improving as 21 Provinces have shown zero new cases. This means the ban on Inter-Provincial travel is slowly being lifted. Although some companies are still operating under home office arrangements, most companies are back to “normal”. More factories have resumed operations even though factory workers traveling from home Provinces still need to be quarantined. If the situation continues to improve, we anticipate more factory output and shipment movements in March.

We understand that all factories are operating differently but this does give us positive news looking forward. As a company we are working extremely hard in the background to keep communications open with our airline and shipping line partners, which means we are able to offer space as and when required by our customers.”

Here is the new check-in procedure for workers returning to work in China

If you have any questions regarding stock availability, please get in touch and we will happily advise.
