As a responsible company, the Zumtobel Group follows the guidelines of the Austrian federal government as well as the general recommendations of health authorities and local governments in other countries where the Zumtobel Group is present. The health and safety of employees, partners and customers is a top priority at all times.
Re-opening of the luminaire plant in Les Andelys, France
Production at the Zumtobel Group plant in Les Andelys, which is specialised on the manufacturing of outdoor luminaires, was reopened on 14 April 2020. Despite compliance with all hygienic and safety measures, the plant was temporarily closed due to a confirmed case of corona (COVID-19). In accordance with all Zumtobel Group sites, the company will continue to ensure that all hygienic precautions are strictly followed in order to guarantee smooth operations.
Job retention: short-time work in Austria since 1 April
Since 1 April 2020, the Zumtobel Group has implemented the federal government's short-time work offer at all Austrian locations for three months. During the short-time work period, the company continues to be able to react quickly to temporarily necessary capacity adjustments in its scenario planning, while maintaining core functions within the Zumtobel Group. Short-time work will therefore enable the company to remain functional as well as to maintain jobs.
Many employees are currently working from home. This means that customers can reach their usual contacts by phone or virtually.
Capability to deliver maintained
With its production facilities and distribution centres, the Zumtobel Group’s capability to deliver is maintained. The sites operate under strict hygienic precautionary measures to protect suppliers, forwarders and employees.
The Zumtobel Group wishes all customers, partners and employees good health and would like to thank them for their trust.
