Our precautions for serving and supporting you and your HX needs safely! Since the beginning of the current situation, our number one priority has been, and continues to be, the health and wellbeing of all our employees, business partners, and their families around the world. We are rigorously following the WHO recommendations and local governments’ guidance. The Board receives daily reports from all manufacturing sites and on all key suppliers. Together, we are continuously working to ensure an uninterrupted supply chain and a reliable delivery performance. So far, the majority of our sites are operational except for individual plants, which had to shut down the production due to restrictions imposed by local authorities. Where lock downs were imposed, we are in negotiations with local authorities to get special permits to restart operations. Most of our white-collar employees are working from home and therewith do their best to support our business and customers. We are currently taking measures to mitigate the impact on our customers concerned and will contact them individually to discuss possible consequences.
The UK’s F-gas certification body Refcom insists that there is still no evidence that air conditioning or ventilation systems are contributing to the spread of the coronavirus. “It is really important to reconfirm that, at this stage, there is still no evidence that air conditioning or ventilation systems are contributing to the spread of the virus” head of Refcom Graeme Fox, said. The latest most informed information is contained in the BESA guidance document. BESA ist the building engineering service association.
The risk of disease outbreaks including pandemics increases the more nature is destroyed. Committed nature conservation in many regions of the world is thus key to preventing new infectious diseases. Federal Environment Minister Schulze emphasised this link together with renowned scientists. The exact transmission route of the novel coronavirus from animals to humans has not yet been conclusively researched. However, it is well documented that around 70 per cent of the human pathogens originate from fauna, including HIV, Ebola, influenza, MERS and SARS. The risk of transmission is particularly high at wildlife markets where people come together with different species in a confined space and where animals are kept penned up under unacceptable hygiene conditions. In the view of scientists, there is an even more fundamental risk of animal to human transmission when ecosystems are thrown out of balance due to human intervention.
