COVID-19-Pandemic: What does it mean for us? Statement from CEO Franz Reiner

March 20, 2020 - It’s a challenging time. The world is facing unprecedented circumstances – and at the very moment stands still. While China appears to be seeing the first declines in COVID-19 infections, the pandemic is spreading in Europe and other parts of the world.

Regardless of the current situation, my most important message to you is: Together and united, we will also master this challenge! To do so, we must distance ourselves from each other, be disciplined and think first and foremost of the common good. One thing must always remain the same: health and well-being have to be top priority!

We will reassess the situation continuously and, of course, support the calls of the Federal Governments and the countries.

There is one more thing that is particularly important to me to recall: Especially in challenging times, it is our core values that function as our compass and form the basis for our actions. Not only our employees, but also all our customers can rely on them.

In this respect I can assure you: We are working very hard these days and weeks to ensure our business can maintain its operations for our customers. To do so we use flexible working models and digital solutions!

Take good care of yourself and stay healthy!


Franz Reiner
