The health of our employees and the security of supply for our customers have top priority. Gabriel-Chemie takes its responsibility and the health of its team very seriously.
An internal crisis management team has been set up at Gabriel-Chemie in order to be able to react appropriately to the constantly changing situation. This team constantly coordinates in order to evaluate the latest developments, make decisions and take the appropriate measures.
How Gabriel-Chemie is protecting its employees
Of course, Gabriel-Chemie fully supports the regulations and recommendations of local governments. In addition to stricter protection and hygiene measures at the international locations, business trips have been discontinued and employees have largely switched to teleworking. Everyone can make an enormously valuable contribution here!
All internal training courses and major meetings of the family business have been canceled and meetings are being held via conferencing. Gabriel-Chemie is protecting laboratory, production and warehouse areas in order to minimise physical contact and the associated risk of employee infection.
Gabriel-Chemie is operating normally for its customers
The operating hours at Gabriel-Chemie are not changing at the present time. The family business can be reached during the usual opening hours and production is running as usual. Customers and interested parties can obtain information about products online and are being advised by sales staff via video chat, telephone calls and e-mails.
ITALIEN SITE: Due to the fact that Gabriel-Chemie Group's Italian site is located in the most affected zone in Italy, the production plant in Bergamo was temporarily closed down to protect employees. Current orders are being outsourced to other Gabriel-Chemie locations. It is difficult to estimate whether this will delay deliveries. The Italien sales team is still available for customers by telephone.
24 hours-masterbatch online platform
Gabriel-Chemie is one of the industry pioneers in digitalisation. Customers already have the opportunity to use the online platform www.masterofbatch.com to find out about products and stock levels.
The situation is difficult to assess
Assessments of the situation and its impact on the security of supply are difficult or impossible to make now due to daily changes in the general conditions.
Gabriel-Chemie’s numerous locations throughout Europe enable it to provide its customers with the best possible support during this period.
The management of the family-owned company is confident that the situation will remain under control with the observance of all measures taken and the best possible crisis management by authorities and governments.
