Covid-19: Current situation, as of 5/13/2020 13.05.2020
VAHLE currently supplies without restrictions from the Kamen warehouse. Customer visits are possible again under strict hygiene conditions.
At the Paul Vahle GmbH & Co KG headquarters in Kamen (North Rhine-Westphalia), all known precautionary measures recommended by the authorities are currently being implemented.
The further relaxation as of May 11 will also allow customer visits at your site or at the VAHLE headquarters in Kamen again under strict hygiene conditions.
Since March 16, 2020, all employees for whom this is possible have been working from home as a preventive measure. You can still reach every employee as usual via telephone or e-mail. However, regular work operations remain unaffected.
The Operations division is in daily contact with our partners and suppliers. Within the plant, we have significantly increased safety measures to ensure the continued well-being of our employees, who actively support us at the Kamen production site.
In addition, flexible working time arrangements are being implemented in production to reduce staff density and minimize the risk of infection.
The supply chains for our production in Kamen are intact, so there have been no delays here either to date. Globally, too, we are able to ensure local supplies thanks to the storage capacities of our subsidiaries in Brazil, China, the USA, Italy, France, the Netherlands, Singapore, Spain, Portugal and Austria.
As a component supplier for medical technology and other critical industries, we are classified as system-relevant in most countries.
However, we have no influence on local supply chains that are affected by external influences.
Thank you for your trust!
