03/27/2020 Coronavirus / measures and outlook
As an international group of companies, we take our social responsibilities very seriously. The protection of human health is our top priority in all of our business activities. We are aiming to reduce the risk of infection among our employees and their relatives as well as our business partners. In this way, we are helping to prevent infection and slow down the spread of the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2.
All Liebherr companies worldwide are reacting flexibly according to the situation on site to protect their employees while maintaining key business processes as effectively as possible. They are undertaking various measures, including carrying out extensive hygiene management, re-organising areas of production to prevent the spread of infection, issuing guidelines on working from home and generally using remote forms of working instead of face-to-face meetings.
Bottlenecks in regions and countries severely affected by the coronavirus are currently the prime cause of problems in the supply chain. This has resulted in the temporary shutdown of certain factories or an adjustment in production capacities. All Liebherr divisions and companies have been working closely with suppliers and customers over recent days and weeks. If you have any questions, please get in touch with your usual contact at Liebherr.
