As a result of the excellent work of our COVID19-crisis team and the responsible behaviour of our employees, all our departments are operational. Some of our supply lines are tense, but not broken. Where possible, work is done from home offices. Production, quality, logistics and others where this is not possible, work has been done in a shift-model for the last weeks. Now, with infection rates fortunately going down all over Germany, at June 1st, we will return to our standard working schedule.
We work hard and are very cautious, not to risk this positive development - taking care for our employees, their relatives and serving our clients.
What measure have been taken to protect persons internally?
The RHEINTACHO Group has initiated a number of measures to protect employees and business partners and hence to ensure the continuation of business. We have informed our staff, customers and business partners as detailed as possible for us. By creating interdisciplinary work groups, we want to achieve fast communication and implementation of decided measures.
Hygienic measures have been intensified and company-wide, continuously updated information about precautionary measures to prevent infection is ensured. This includes strict hygienic and behavioural rules, a general travel ban and a significant decrease in physical meetings.
Will visits to customers still be made by RHEINTACHO staff?
In principal, all employees have been asked to check postponing appointments by communicating with customers in order to reduce personal contacts. For the time being we have cancelled all trade fair visits and activities.
All direct contacts should be changed to alternative, digital possibilities (Telephone, Video conference etc.) or postponed.
In addition, all physical contact (e.g. shaking hands) is to be avoided.
Do we receive visitors?
Unregistered visitors will not be allowed to enter. And in general, we will only allow visits case to case if they by no means can be postponed. These appointments are to be explicitly coordinated and approved by the internal contact persons. All direct contacts should be changed to alternative, digital possibilities (Telephone, Video conference etc.) or postponed. In addition, all physical contact (e.g. shaking hands) is to be avoided.
Will there presently be any delays in production or deliveries?
No. Our special work group for this topic meets regularly to evaluate the current developments and this enable us to react as quickly as possible. The delivery of our products is presently not impaired by the effects of the Corona COVID-19 virus. Hence, today, both production and delivery in general are ensured. Due to the special dynamics of this situation, we are observing any developments and possible effects on our business very closely. If the situation changes in any way, we will contact any affected customers directly.
