We

We are here for you – in every situation!

In some regions of the world, the Corona situation is slowly easing. But the pandemic is not over. The safety and health of our employees, business partners and customers remains a top priority. This is how we protect and support you.

Even if there are signs of a slight easing of the corona situation in some regions of the world: For us as the Körber Group with around 10,000 employees as well as business partners and customers around the world, safety and health always have the highest priority. We are doing everything necessary to protect the people we work with from the consequences of the pandemic and to continue to support them as a reliable partner in times of the "new normal”.

What we do in more detail:

 

1. We protect people

We introduced information and prevention measures for our employees throughout the Group at an early stage: For example, we use a wide variety of alternative forms of work worldwide, such as remote working or modified shift work, to minimize the risk of infection.

Extensive protective and hygiene measures apply to our employees and to personal contact with our partners and customers. Here, we follow the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO), the German Robert Koch Institute (RKI) and local authorities, among others.

Even when working with a reduced presence in offices and new shift models in our production facilities, we strictly observe the official requirements and conditions as well as specially developed safety and hygiene rules. If the infection situation in a region worsens, we can act quickly and flexibly at our sites. If the situation allows us to relax our protective measures, we will implement them carefully and step by step.

2. We support our partners and customers

Many of our customers work in areas that are of outstanding importance in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, such as the pharmaceutical industry, the hygiene products industry or logistics. With entrepreneurial action and creative solutions, we support our customers, for example to prevent supply bottlenecks for products and goods that are particularly needed or in demand. For example, Körber's Business Area Pharma is involved in the production of the six most promising Corona vaccines worldwide (read more here).

The business continuity for and together with our customers and partners is the focus of all our attention in all our companies in the Körber Group. The Körber Global Corona Response Team regularly monitors the current situation concerning the dynamic development of the Covid-19 pandemic in order to be able to initiate the necessary measures for stable business continuity together with the Group companies at an early stage. Wherever there are further restrictions and conditions imposed by the authorities, we support our customers and partners remotely. We are increasingly relying on digital tools and solutions and we will consistently expand and further develop these to continue to be a reliable partner for our customers and partners.

3. We are reliable, strong and stable thanks to our financial independence

The consequences of the pandemic for the economy and businesses are massive. Thanks to our strong equity base, our high cash position and our solid operational financing structure – in short, thanks to our financial independence – we, at Körber, are very well positioned to master this unprecedented challenge together with our employees, customers and business partners and to emerge from this period strengthened.

We are here for you – in every situation.
