Global restart of production in full swing

Salzburg, 11 May 2020. Following the production stops due to the corona pandemic, we are currently working intensively on ramping up our automotive plants worldwide. As a reliable partner, it is our goal to continue to ensure production for our customers wherever possible without endangering the health of our employees.

In China, production is running at all 15 sites. In Europe we are already producing in 90% of our plants again. We plan to successfully complete the restart of the entire European production within the next six weeks. In our Steel/Tube Division we are responding flexibly to changing customer demands - caused by the Corona pandemic - and are adjusting our capacities to current needs. In North and South America, the wave of pandemic infections is currently developing dynamically. To ensure the safety of our employees, our sites in these regions are therefore in an early ramp-up phase.

The health of our employees has top priority when we restart our global production. A big thank you to them for their commitment.
