Due to the dynamic development of the corona virus pandemic, we have also taken various preventive measures to protect our employees, business partners and customers. In the following statement we would like to inform you about the effects of the current situation on our company.
Thanks to our four locations in Mühlhausen, Süßen, Heroldstatt and Ulm, we have some offices available. This enables us to spread our colleagues across the various locations and to provide everyone with an individual office. In this way, the safety distance can be maintained and the risk of infection through too close contact with one another can be avoided. Nevertheless, all working materials are available to every employee.
Business trips and meetings with and with business partners and customers are of course canceled until further notice. We also refrain from internal meetings as far as possible and use telephone and video conference systems for this.
Colleagues who have so far come to work by public transport are offered either a home office or a shuttle service. This minimizes the risk of infection on the way to work many times over. In order to avoid being infected by colleagues returning from vacation, all colleagues who come from vacation spend two weeks in their home office. This happens regardless of whether it is a crisis area.
Hand disinfectants are available at our locations and our cleaning staff maintain shorter cleaning intervals for areas prone to infection.
All of these preventive measures ensure, on the one hand, that the health of all employees of the Huber Group is maintained and that production can be maintained. The Huber task force team continuously re-evaluates the current situation and adjusts the internal measures accordingly if necessary.
Due to the business interruptions on the customer side (OEMs) and due to the unforeseeable macroeconomic influences of the COVID 19 pandemic, a corresponding impact on the sales and earnings situation must also be expected in our company.
We wish you, your families and colleagues perseverance and confidence in this extraordinary time.
