Measures of the STIWA Group concerning COVID-19

April 1, 2020

The glob­al devel­op­ments on COVID-19 and the efforts to con­tain the SARS-CoV­‑2 virus are cur­rent­ly chal­leng­ing us all. In these demand­ing times, we need to stand togeth­er more than ever. The STIWA Group is main­tain­ing their busi­ness activ­i­ties with­in the scope of the offi­cial reg­u­la­tions. STIWA is ful­fill­ing cus­tomer orders, sup­ply agree­ments and guar­an­teed ser­vices in the best pos­si­ble way and in the inter­est of their cus­tomers. The sup­port is also avail­able to the great­est pos­si­ble extent.

At the same time, we are reduc­ing our oper­a­tions in those areas where it cur­rent­ly makes sense. For exam­ple, we have applied for short-time work for parts of the STIWA Group for three months, grad­u­al­ly start­ing on April 1, 2020, so that we can react flex­i­bly to fur­ther devel­op­ments and secure the jobs of our employ­ees and the exis­tence of the com­pa­ny. We are con­vinced that we will be able to mas­ter this chal­leng­ing peri­od and regain full speed after the crisis.

Max­i­mum pro­tec­tion is our pri­ma­ry goal
In order to pro­tect our employ­ees and busi­ness part­ners, the STIWA Group imple­ment­ed exten­sive pre­ven­tive mea­sures imme­di­ate­ly after the first occur­rence of the virus in Aus­tria, which are con­tin­u­ous­ly adapt­ed to the cur­rent sit­u­a­tion. Wher­ev­er the gen­er­al con­di­tions allow it, our employ­ees work in their home office, meet­ings and appoint­ments are held vir­tu­al­ly. All these steps have led to the fact that there has been no con­firmed infec­tion with the SARS-CoV­‑2 virus with­in the STIWA Group to date. I would like to thank the works coun­cil and all employ­ees who ful­ly sup­port our mea­sures and thus make their con­tri­bu­tion to the con­tin­u­a­tion of our operations.

We are aware that the sit­u­a­tion can change rapid­ly. For this rea­son, the man­age­ment and the Coro­na cri­sis team are con­stant­ly mon­i­tor­ing the sit­u­a­tion and are coor­di­nat­ing fur­ther action on a dai­ly basis. Should fur­ther devel­op­ments require a change in the con­tin­u­a­tion of our busi­ness activ­i­ties, we will of course inform immediately.
