As almost all other factories in China, AVK and Fusion’s Chinese factories were closed from mid-January to mid-February. During this time, orders did not stop coming in, even though machines were shut down, and our colleagues therefore faced a large backlog on their first day back. Fortunately, our colleagues are hardworking and determined, and with extra precautions put in place they were soon back in work with high spirits.
The health and wellbeing of our employees, partners and customers is our number one priority and now that our colleagues are back in the factories working, we have incorporated a number of preventative measures to mitigate the virus from re-emerging.
This means that factories, offices, canteen areas and shuttle buses are disinfected every single day, and everybody wears masks and gloves, washes hands and has their temperature checked twice a day. Furthermore, preventative measures during lunch time and transportation to and from work have also been taken, and on the first day back at work, the management team provided epidemic prevention training to everybody.
