Adherence to deadlines is guaranteed
We have adjusted shift plans, set up home offices and added additional staff to ensure the prescribed physical distancing between employees, and we have all scrupulously complied with personal hygiene rules. Thanks to the flexibility and commitment of our entire workforce, we have achieved great things. All customer deadlines have been met in these difficult times. We would like to thank all of our employees for their efforts.
Our supply chain is crisis-proof
Our strategy for our supply chain is another reason for our crisis resistance. We have been working closely and constructively with all of our external partners for many years. With only a few exceptions, these highly specialized companies are just a few kilometers away from our headquarters in Switzerland. For the components that we source from neighboring countries, including steel, we have maintained an ample stock at our factory. For example, long-term contracts and intermediate storage in Switzerland guarantee us steel stocks in the quality we require for up to six months.
Back to normal
Switzerland’s response to the Covid-19 outbreak appears to be working and the country is expected to start gradually returning to normality on April 27. In order to do our part to ensure that there are no setbacks, we will continue to adhere to official recommendations regarding staff distancing and hygiene practices. That said, our message remains the same: Our customers can count on us.
We wish all our clients and partners the good health and the energy they need to meet the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic. We hope that things can soon return to normal for all of us. In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to let us know if we can support you in any way.
With our very best regards from Switzerland,
Otto Hofstetter, owner and CEO
