BJB responded quickly to the risks posed by the CoVid-19 pandemic. When the pandemic became evident earlier this year, BJB entities throughout the world took the appropriate actions and precautions according to accepted guidelines.
While the health and well-being of our employees is a top priority for BJB, we are able to maintain our focus on outstanding service to our valued customers.
We are strictly adhering to the guidelines of the World Health Organization (WHO) and local governments. This includes elevated hygiene and sanitation standards, observing social distancing principles, work-from-home practices, the utilization of video conferencing in place of face-to-face meetings, and numerous other measures.
Because BJB took comprehensive measures at an early stage of the pandemic, we have been able to provide uninterrupted support and delivery of products. Thanks to sufficient stock levels and proactive supply-chain management, we have consistently delivered products to our customers on schedule – despite several weeks of shutdown in China, Italy, and Spain. Globally, we currently are not experiencing any delivery issues.
The consequences of the CoVid-19 pandemic have now led to a global economic crisis; the long-term extent is still unknown. To promote economic development in the face of the crisis, economic support measures have been implemented in many countries. BJB has participated in many of these initiatives. These include short-time work allowance in some countries and grants to support employees in others. Financially, BJB has sufficient liquidity and reserves for worst-case scenarios, which have now been increased by several million euros as a precaution.
BJB, as a family business, has been a reliable business partner for over 150 years. You can count on BJB, especially in this difficult time! We continue to aggressively support our customers and partners during the CoVid-19 crisis.
