The Corona Virus is changing the way we used to live and work in this world for all of us. Heimbach observes global developments daily, reacts to them in a very targeted manner and would like to inform you about our activities.
The well-being of our employees and all other stakeholders who are in contact with us is our top priority. Heimbach applies the latest recommendations of the Robert-Koch-Institute regarding hygiene or travel.
Our European production sites for paper machine clothing in Germany, England, Spain, Belgium and Switzerland have so far been producing without interruptions. Fortunately, our Chinese site in Suzhou, which mainly serves our Asian customers, has also almost returned to normal operation in the meantime. The internationality of the Heimbach Group has proven itself in such a difficult situation and offers a good risk diversification.
To date, we have had no interruptions in our supply chain when it comes to raw materials, labour, transport or production. Raw materials critical to our supply have been identified and are stocked in sufficient quality and quantity. We have increased safety stocks where necessary. In this respect, we consider ourselves well equipped to reliably serve you as our customer and thus ensure the trouble-free operation of your paper and board machines.
Every day we check the worldwide development of Covid-19 and at our site. Should situations arise that affect the delivery of Heimbach products, you will hear from us, unsolicited.
Until the world "turns back to normal", we hope that you, your loved ones and your colleagues will remain healthy. Let us bring out the best in ourselves and support each other in these challenging times.
