Interview with Jochen Cramer, the deputy managing director of bullmer GmbH about COVID-19
bullmer GmbH is an internationally operating company. How does bullmer deal with the topic of corona virus?
“Due to the worldwide spread of the corona virus COVID-19, we have experienced an unprecedented and unpredictable period in recent months. While we are all struggling with this global pandemic, bullmer GmbH is following all developments very closely to ensure the safety of employees and customers while maintaining service levels and support”.
What impact does the corona virus have on bullmer’s ability to deliver?
“bullmer GmbH manufactures most of its products at its headquarters in Mehrstetten. We are also in close contact with our suppliers in order to identify possible effects on their supply chain at an early stage and to be able to react appropriately. Currently our supply chain is still fully functional. Of course, you can still contact us by phone and e-mail. Even in these difficult times for us all, bullmer GmbH stands for delivery reliability and consistently good quality”.
Which measures does bullmer GmbH take to protect employees and their contact persons from the corona virus in the best possible way?
“The most important thing is internal education, which is our top priority: Employees are sensitized to hygiene – washing hands, sufficient distance to others, adherence to the coughing and sneezing label and disinfection of surfaces used by different people.”
Are demos and training and service assignments possible again?
“To ensure the best possible protection for our employees, we also offer appointments online as video conferences. As usual, we will offer on-site appointments at our customers’ premises or at our company from August onwards. However, it is an absolute prerequisite that the customer or employee does not come from a risk area and that they wear a mouth and nose protector for the duration of the event.”
