René Pankoke: We all should take the risk of the epidemic seriously. We cannot prevent the economy from slowing down. But maybe especially because of that we should try to work hard on keeping it moving as good as anyone can. Don´t hide and get passive but try to work as good as possible on remote basis. The more we do this, the easier it will be to catch up with our usual processes after the crisis again. And don´t wait for others to help you but do your own best to help your neighbor, your company and the society as a whole!
At Hymmen we have split our factory into two shifts to reduce any potential issues, and are keeping parts, machine assembly, and engineering running. We are maintaining social distancing along with extra hygiene measures.
Our sales, engineering and service teams are working remotely and from their home office and will continue to keep the dialog going through various share and networking software. Most of our customers are still producing. Thanks to the digitalization of communication and processes we can support our customers in their ongoing production. Besides this we do our best in helping them to push their investment projects forward. We are discussing currently with several customers about new projects in the short run.
