Dear visitor,

How is ERIKS handling the recent developments regarding COVID-19?
The new coronavirus is currently expanding. ERIKS has taken all necessary precautions to protect its employees. The shipment of products ordered on our webshop proceeds as usual.

Which measures did ERIKS take?

  • ERIKS employees practise the current hygiene instructions as set by the RIVM (including social distancing of 1.5m);
  • All employees essentially work from home, excepting our Logistics department;
  • Picking up your orders from ERIKS locations is no longer possible.

Impact on delivery
Currently the spread of COVID-19 is not affecting the delivery performance of ERIKS. Orders are both handled and shipped normally*. We keep in close contact with suppliers who have production sites in areas struck by COVID-19. When necessary, we will seek alternatives to guarantee our deliveries as well as possible. Generally speaking, our stock is sufficient. However, because the situation in the affected areas can change at any moment the status regarding our delivery remains a snapshot of the current situation.

** Exceptions to this are facemasks, overalls, disinfectants and related hygiene products. Unfortunately, due to a worldwide shortage these products are currently unavailable.
