As almost all other factories in China, AVK’s Chinese factories were closed from mid-January to mid-February. During this time, orders did not stop coming in even though machines were shut down, and our colleagues therefore faced a huge backlog on their first day back. Luckily, our Chinese colleagues are hardworking and determined, and they just put on their safety masks and started working – in high spirits all the way through.
Now that our +400 colleagues are back in the factories working, we have incorporated various preventive measures to prevent the virus from reemerging. This means that factories, offices, canteen areas and shuttle buses are disinfected every single day and everybody wears masks and gloves, washes hands and gets their temperature checked twice a day. Furthermore, preventive measures during lunch time and transportation to and from work have also been taken, and on the first day back at work, the management team provided epidemic prevention training to everybody.
