VITRONIC relies on cooperation in the fight against the coronavirus

• Early internal measures for the benefit of employees • Close exchange with customers and suppliers • Holistic changes to internal processes and capacity planning

Wiesbaden, March 23, 2020 - The expert in visual inspection from Wiesbaden VITRONIC is setting clear signals in the fight against the coronavirus. Early in February, the company created a crisis team to reassess the situation daily and to inform the employees. In the meantime, numerous measures have been taken to protect employees, suppliers and customers.

  • Conversion to home office for all employees working in the office
  • Prioritization of IT topics for a smooth process
  • Parents and risk groups enjoy special protection in areas where a home office is not possible.
  • Closing of the canteen and other public areas
  • Strongly controlled access by suppliers to selected areas
  • Controlled internal exchange, no exchange between the properties
  • Pooling of forces to fulfill the contract
  • Supply chains: constant observation of the situation in the procurement markets. Quick solution finding with the customer if there are any effects in individual orders
  • Division of production into two groups, with activities taking place independently of each other. Central areas are also cleaned every hour, the minimum distance each other is respected
  • Small things also count: disposable cloths for opening the door, operating the touchpads on coffee machines, and various multiple machines to be used. Replacement planning of building use ensures further productivity in an emergency (e.g. production).

 

Daniel Scholz-Stein (CEO) says, “Nobody can currently assess the effects of the corona virus exactly. Our goal is therefore to minimize the corona influence and the resulting risks as much as possible. This primarily affects the health of our employees, but also economic risks for VITRONIC, our suppliers and customers. We will constantly reassess the situation and adapt to it. I appeal to all stakeholders to agree to the changed framework together. Then we will emerge from this crisis stronger in the future”.
