As you probably have seen in the news over the past few weeks, several precautions have been taken worldwide to prevent the COVID-19 outbreak from spreading even further.

The outbreak has caused disruptions in supply chains worldwide, including those of electronic manufacturers. This may have consequences for our own supply chain as well due to limited availability of certain supplies. We are trying our best to find second-source suppliers for critical components where necessary, but as of yet cannot make any statements regarding delivery delays until we have more insight into the impact of this issue.

At Avantes, we want to minimize the risks associated with the virus for our customers, suppliers and of course our employees as much as possible, which is why we have decided to cease all travelling activities and customer visits to our company until further notice.

Though we prefer meeting you face to face, we want you to know that you can still contact us by phone and email, and we would love to set up a Skype meeting to give you personalized advice and support!

We have offices in the Netherlands, United States of America, and China, so you can always contact us, no matter the time zone: click here for our contact information. Of course you can always send an email to and we will make sure it ends up with the right person.

We appreciate your understanding and patience regarding this issue. If you have any questions, please contact us at

Thank you,

The Avantes Team
