We are there for you 24/7
04 May 2020
Even in times of Corona Virus
We want to assure you that we are still there to do our very best for you – despite the corona virus and its multiple effects. No matter where we are, in our offices in China or Germany, in our workshops in Slovakia or China, or in our home offices all over the world: We are always ready to receive and respond to your requests and ideas.
We have already been able to contract with customers and business partners during these times and are positive that more will follow. We are also in very close contact with our suppliers.
Our first priority, of course, is the safety and well-being of all our employees, their families and all our customers worldwide. We tackled the situation at a very early stage by setting up an internal crisis team. It meets 2 – 3 times a week and is also in contact with our overseas offices around the world.
At these meetings, appropriate measures have already been agreed. These include hygiene standards, the maintenance of an appropriate distance to possible sick persons, travel warnings and restrictions as well as regulations concerning the introduction of home office working, etc.
These difficult times require a special team spirit. Let’s master the challenges together.
Mask donations and an own, special mask production for the region.
Protective masks and disinfectants are urgently needed everywhere to combat the corona crisis. This is also the case in the region where Brückner Maschinenbau is based.
Thanks to the company's own logistics know-how and with the help of our Chinese branch, Brückner Group China, Brückner has already been able to support the district of Traunstein with protective masks on several occasions. In total, more than 40,000 masks have already been handed over to the district. In addition, several litres of disinfectant as well as hundreds of disposable gloves have been handed over. The materials go to nursing homes, hospitals and doctors in private practice in the district.
The commitment of Brückner is to be continued. In the future, the company group will provide 20,000 protective masks per week for the district.
Moreover, Brückner Maschinenbau – with the help of their customers Klöckner Pentaplast and sicht-pack Hagner – could organise larger quantities of film for the production of protection masks. The film was handed over to several local charities.
Brückner's sister company Kiefel in Freilassing also actively supports the Berchtesgadener Land district with protective masks and disinfectants. As a result, several thousand FFP2 masks have already been handed over to the District Office.
A contribution is also being made in the company's own production. For example, Kiefel produces face masks in cooperation with Hörl Kunststofftechnik – fast and effective. The production volume is now 50,000 pieces per day. The masks are sent to surrounding clinics, medical facilities and doctors' surgeries and are distributed centrally by the crisis management team of the Berchtesgadener Land District Office.
