TE-Force Majeure - notices from suppliers regarding effects of flooding in Germany and Belgium

Dear Channel Partner,

Due to the unprecedented recent rains and resultant flooding in Western Germany and Belgium, TE Connectivity has received several Force Majeure notices from suppliers in this region. We are actively working with our suppliers to understand the impact on their operations, and we are in the process of determining the resulting effects on our production. Needless to say, assessing the impact on the human side takes the highest priority in these circumstances.

As you are aware, our primary goal is to support you under these circumstances to the best extent we can and to maintain our ability to deliver. However, given the Force Majeure notices already issued from our suppliers and the expectation that additional notices will be issued in the coming days, a negative impact on our ability to supply is inevitable.

As a result, TE must respectfully advise that these circumstances (i) render TE’s performance practically and/or commercially impossible, and (ii) constitute a Force Majeure event under all applicable agreements between TE and its customers and their respective affiliates. As such, TE will not accept responsibility (including the responsibility for financial costs) for any resulting line-down or other supply chain related charges such as e.g. premium freight.

Please be assured that TE is paying close attention to the situation and will update regularly, whenever possible, with the necessary respect to our supplier and their employees and people in the region that are impacted by the tragedy. We are exploring options to minimize the impact to your supply chain, including actively looking for available alternatives.

If you have any questions regarding your specific order, please contact your regionally assigned TE sales representative or Solution Center Team.
