Resuming Work. Statement by CEO and Founder of Enamine
Dear Colleagues, Customers, and Friends,
It has been 43 days.
Forty-three days with thousands of bombs, shells, and missiles fired out at our cities and villages, thousands of destroyed buildings, bridges, streets, thousands of killed people. And there are to be feared thousands of victims yet to come as the war continues with a new focus to the East of our country, the war for democracy to prevail against dictatorship and tyranny, the war of the civilized world against the paranoiac barbarians, the war of good against evil. Russia commits genocide against Ukrainians, terrorizes the population, and engages in looting. Nowadays after the crimes in Chernihiv and Kharkiv, after the massacre in Bucha, Irpin and Borodyanka, everybody understands: the world appears to be once again black and white these days and one can see clearly who stands on the side of Ukraine.
I am thankful to the countries and businesses that support Ukraine. I thank those of you who provide donations and help our refugees, everyone who decided to stop paying taxes and operation in Russia, and everyone who just spreads the truth and makes others aware of it. It is hard to overestimate the importance of knowing and feeling that we are not alone in our fight for freedom.
The situation in Kyiv has significantly improved and normalized for the past 2 weeks, so is the west part of our country. We are glad to see that several countries are re-opening their embassies in Kyiv. The president of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, will visit Kyiv in the coming days. This shows optimal level of safety for our employees notably, and that the city returns to normal life. Following the call of our President and Prime minister to resume operations where and when it is possible, in compliance with strict safety regulations ruled by our local authorities, we, Team Enamine including already over 300 chemists, have collectively decided to get back to work in Kyiv. Indeed, gradually, since not all the chemistry can be performed right now, e.g., we avoid performing large-scale synthesis. We also expect some delays with purification and delivery for the first period, being determined to solve these issues as soon as possible with the drastically improving situation. We confirm that a major part of our synthetic operations can be performed, and that our chemists and biologists are ready and motivated to work on your projects and tasks.
Now I personally address these words to you, our valued customers and supporters. Please kindly consider resuming ordering our products and services and let us just do in that manner what we love and are best at: the synthesis. Please help us to restart the work at our full steam on custom synthesis, FTE projects and synthesis of make-on-demand building blocks. We are delighted to continue working with our established customers and are most happy to start new collaborations as we are solicitated.
Continuing ordering our compounds and services is the best support because it allows us to operate and keep our employees, our business and Ukraine strong, beside the other key reason of expediting uniquely your valuable research programs with the Art of Enamine.
Founder and CEO of Enamine
