The events during the past two years have made it clear that continued investment in a safe, pleasant and clean work environment is a top priority.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, we have given extra attention to safety and hygiene. Also in 2021, we have taken measures to prevent the spread of the virus and encouraged our Family members to look after themselves and live healthily. Where necessary, teams of business-critical functions were dispersed in production and office workers were given the necessary equipment to work from home. Business meetings were kept to a minimum and digital meetings became a matter of course.

While keeping a close eye on the continuity of our operations, the aim was first and foremost, to ensure the safety and well-being of our Family members. By taking action and paying close attention to each other, we have managed to prevent a large-scale spread of infection within our Business Units. This is largely due to the unceasing dedication, reliability, passion, critical attitude, team spirt and flexibility of our Family members.
