As recently announced, we will provide you with information on the current situation at our Austrian locations once a week to keep you up to date during these exceptional times.
All in all, we have come through the first one and a half weeks of the lockdown rather well. Our productions in Graz, Sinabelkirchen and Weiz continue to produce to a high quality standard and according to plan. Likewise, the projects in Engineering proceed without limitation. Just over half of our employees are currently working from home. Since we have been incorporating significant further improvements in the IT systems in recent months, we are now able to pursue our activities from home without compromising adequate performance.
With your personal dedication and commitment you are all making an immense contribution to ensuring that our operations meet the expectations of our customers in every respect, even during this challenging phase. For this we would like to thank every one of you most sincerely! It is very satisfying to see how much discipline you are practicing, and that you have integrated the comprehensive measures responsibly into your everyday life – both at work and at home. This is precisely what we need to stay healthy and come through the pandemic as a team in the best possible way.
It is of overriding importance to minimize contacts in order to reduce the risk of infection. Because of this, we appeal to you to avoid car pools as much as possible and hold meetings virtually. If you meet in person, please always observe the minimum distance rule and remember the duty to wear a face mask (mouth and nose protector).
As a company we are very proud to have coped so well with this exceptional situation together with you, and we are convinced that we will continue to do so as a strong team. We will make it through – safe and sound!
Keep taking good care of yourselves and your family, and stay healthy!
Your Magna Steyr Management Team
