Like most of the businesses worldwide today, also the Wittmann Group companies have to face special challenges due to the corona virus crisis. As soon as the latest development began to take shape, the necessary measures were taken immediately.
For employees, customers, and suppliers, all the necessary safety precautions were taken. Wherever possible, activities have been moved to the home office and currently no visits of our production facilities are taking place.
The plants in Austria, Hungary, and China continue their production. Only the production of material handling products (drying, resin conveying, blending) in Wolkersdorf/Austria had to be stopped temporarily. Most of the Wolkersdorf departments – especially Sales and Distribution, Service, and Receipt of Goods, however are ready for operation.
In France, a general official decree from the French government brought about the closing of the French production plant. In principal also there, distribution and service are available.
In the U.S. Federal State of Connecticut, it was decreed on the weekend for all businesses that are not essential ones, to close down until April 22 - this is also true for the local Wittmann Group U.S. plant. This day, March 23, companies can use for an orderly shutdown of their production. Since the American company is currently working on numerous new projects in the field of medical technology, it is currently investigated whether part of the production can be continued. Also for our plant in the U.S., a service hotline is available. Whether spare parts can be delivered is also checked.
