In this period of instability, we would like to inform you about the situation at Pierhor-Gasser.
Like the rest of the industry, our operations have been heavily impacted since mid-March due to the lock down related to COVID-19. However, thanks to the commitment of our employees and the implementation of strict sanitary measures, we managed to keep operating and ensure the supply to our customers. Since the beginning of April, we have been producing with a team corresponding to approximately 50% of our workforce, and since the beginning of May, our team is around 80%. As a result, we have taken up the challenge of delivering our customers on time when requested.
This exceptional situation is impacting the industry on a large scale and we are also undergoing adjustments to our customers’ forecasts, forcing us to react flexibly and adapt our production to the demands of our mains customers.
Nevertheless, this period has been a time for improvement and we took the opportunity to keep going in our projects and to improve our processes and organization. Thus, several internal training projects, improvement to the information flow, management of measuring equipment in particular within the framework of the ISO 13485 certification, were able to progress in particular within the framework of the ISO 13485 certification, were able to progress during this period. Our main goal now is to be fully operational and stronger than before when business resumes at full speed.
Like every company, all sanitary measures have been taken in order to guarantee the health of our employees as well as halting the spread of this virus. We would like to take this opportunity to warmly thank all of our staff for their support during this delicate period.
All of your contacts at Pierhor-Gasser – partially those working from home – are at your disposal to meet your expectations and thank you for your faithful collaboration.
