SITREP : Our Zinswiller (FR) factory
We would like to inform you about the specific situation of our De Dietrich Process Systems in Zinswiller (FR) regarding the Covid-19. During the last days we have applied drastic preventive measures to protect our employees.
For a week, a specific work organization to create significant space between all employees has been in place. All administrative employees have been relocated in home office. All external and internal travels have been canceled, and for the ones linked to emergency and or Service they all were following drastic safety rules. We also insured to have sufficient stock of raw material to follow our industrial activity.
Nevertheless, our country, France, is now under containment and more specifically our local area is a specific active cluster of the virus. Day by day many of us must resign to come at work for personal or family reason, most of the neighbor companies here are closing for safety.
This means that despite all those measures taken as preventive plans, we are now facing a situation that we must order to all our employees to stay in complete containment.
By Thursday March 19th we are step by step closing the Zinswiller site (our process needs several days to execute such closing)
Unfortunately the current situation makes us impossible to inform about the day of future start up, so we can not forecast the impact on our delivery. The known information is that the official containment in France is a minimum of 15 days.
So far all others De Dietrich Process Systems factories (in Europe and worldwide), out of Alsace cluster, are still in operation. Your privileged contacts can still be reached by the same means of communication.
We are deeply convinced that increased and proactive cooperation will enable us to overcome this challenge.
