Since the Covid-19 outbreak began earlier in the year, Saurer has been continuously implementing timely measures to protect its employees and its partners, and the company will continue to do so rigorously.
The economic consequences of this pandemic will certainly affect Saurer, but given the dynamic situation, it is not possible to reliably quantify the business impact at the moment. We are doing everything in our power to maintain service and operations at our production plants in order to continue supporting our customers and partners as much as possible.
As we do this, we are co-operating closely with the relevant government authorities and works councils. We fully support all containment measures implemented by various local entities; in many locations, these keep tightening. It is our sincere hope that these actions − in combination with our collective efforts − will stem the number of infections in the coming weeks.
