Plansee returns to work at Chinese plant following shutdown
May 19, 2020
Plansee Group, headquartered in Reutte, Austria, reports its Plansee Shanghai facility has restarted and maintained production during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Richard Cheung, Managing Director of Plansee Shanghai, explained that well-planned risk management and efficient measures had enabled the company to open its doors again on February 10, initially welcoming back 50% of its employees, which increased to 75% in the following two weeks.
While some projects may be delayed, production is now running. New daily routines, such as measuring the employees’ body temperature, regular hand washing and boxed lunches are said to be in place to ensure the health of workers and safe production. Cheung believes that business will be back to normal in a couple of months.
