March 18, 2020: Dear customers, partners, interested parties and friends,
The news of the last few days are developing rapidly and we would like to inform you about the measures taken at HAIMER regarding COVID-19 (Corona Virus):
The health and safety of employees, customers, suppliers and partners have top priority at HAIMER. We take the increasingly global spread of the Corona Virus very seriously.
Weeks ago, we took numerous measures to prevent the spread of the Corona Virus in our workplace. For example, in Europe - employees who have been in a risk area or a particularly affected region within the past two weeks, private or for business, may return to their workplace after 14 days. The same applies, of course, to people in contact with a confirmed Corona Virus infected person. The same standards are also in place for all visitors to our company in order to minimize the risk on all sides.
We still ensure a smooth business process and, for the protection and well-being of our staff and their families, we have taken a multitude of internal measures to significantly reduce the risk.
Additionally, Haimer GmbH has completely separated the two production facilities with their respective departments. There is no longer any face-to-face contact between the employees of both plants and between the operational departments. They have set up an additional emergency staff at their second location for all function-relevant departments in order to be prepared in case of necessity.
However, all employees can still be reached by phone, email and all social media channels, as usual. Haimer USA‘s Technical Team continues to be available to serve your business. We are able to still do in-person appointments, but if it is better for your operation or comfort level, we also offer phone and video meetings. Regardless, we are here to provide a solution so your production keeps running smoothly.
You can still rely 100% on HAIMER. Our ability to deliver is 100% guaranteed and our production is running!
Our very high level of vertical integration enables us to be more independent from suppliers. Once again, it pays off that we produce 100% in Germany and do not purchase (prefabricated) goods (e.g. sourced from the Far East). At Haimer USA, we want to assure you our product pipeline continues to be filled from Germany and we have a large inventory here at our North American Headquarters near Chicago. With this, we are able to maintain normal operations and provide the same order fulfillment as before.
We are there for you and ready to deliver products to meet your needs.
We wish you and your family the best of health and safety.
