We keep going03/20/2020

Since January 2020, the W+D Group has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak and development. In accordance with the recommendations of the Federal Office of Public Health, the WHO as well as the input of other Barry-Wehmiller companies, we have acted appropriately and quickly. The board members have already initiated the following steps:

  • Business travelling and personal meetings have been restricted and are substituted by online meetings.
  • We have upgraded our IT-infrastructure to meet increased remote access demands.
  • Part of our employees have already been working at home this week to ensure their safety. Thus we can also guarantee the functioning of critical issues if some employees may be placed into quarantine.
  • In addition we had a close look at our supply chain and have taken steps where necessary.

This uncertain situation is a challenge for all of us, and nobody can tell today how long it will last. But the W+D group is able to keep up the availability of its spare parts and services. Our production is working to plan and we carry out our deliveries.

We will do everything we can to meet our customers‘ and partners‘ needs by delivering our products and services as usual. If you have any questions please contact us.
