Measures concerning
COVID-19 (Corona)

The current situation regarding COVID-19 (Corona) poses a particular challenge for us as a globally operating company. However, we can assure you that we have taken extensive measures to protect our employees and maintain our supply chains to minimize the impact of the pandemic on our ability to deliver. These measures include in particular:

  • Establishment of a COVID-19 staff, which meets regularly to discuss events inside and outside the company and develop appropriate measures.
  • New shift system: In order to minimize the risk of infection, we have introduced a new shift system in our largest warehouse to reduce the amount of contact traffic. The colleagues of the different shifts do not meet each other.
  • Hygiene and information measures have been taken at all sites (for example, introduction of a ventilation concept for all closed rooms, use of medical mouth/nose protection in accordance with legal requirements, mandatory wearing of masks when leaving the workplace, compliance with a minimum distance of 1.50 meters, 10 square meters per employee through mobile working and distribution in the houses, hand disinfection in entrance and restaurant areas, provision of disposable gloves, implementation of all legally required measures in Germany and abroad).
  • Business trips abroad are currently not undertaken at all and domestic trips only necessarily. During meetings, video and telephone conference systems are used wherever possible.
  • Employees have the opportunity to work from home.
  • On-site colleagues can take two tests per week, regardless of their activity.

These measures are checked daily, adjusted if necessary and we will always react to current developments. We have an extensive stock of tubes and tube accessories in our warehouses worldwide and will of course do everything in our power to continue to supply you as usual. Nevertheless, we ask for your understanding that this is an extremely dynamic situation and we cannot completely exclude problems in the delivery process, as we do not completely determine or control the supply chain. Should this be the case, we will contact you shortly. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you expect supply bottlenecks elsewhere or from other sources.
