We have already experienced the consequences of COVID-19 in China, which resulted in a complete shutdown of our production companies from mid-January to mid-February. AVK’s factories in China are now back in production and at normal capacity. Safety of employees is still a main concern for us and we continue the recommended safety precautions to prevent the virus from re-emerging. From China, we learnt that we need to take COVID-19 seriously and to take responsibility for the safety of our employees. Thanks to a dedicated effort from everyone, we got through the difficult situation in China.
The COVID-19 is now a reality in all parts of the world, and this affects our companies, employees and business partners all around the world. However, we will do whatever we can to keep our business operational. AVK is a global company with dedicated people in our companies worldwide. We have strong local operating companies supported by a global supply chain. This will enable us to serve our customers in all parts of the world even in difficult times like this.
We take responsibility of our employees’ safety. We have taken all necessary precautions in all our production facilities and offices. All our companies follow local regulations and stay updated on guidelines and measures from local authorities, and we are in constant dialogue with our companies.
As a family-owned company, we have strong values, a long term strategy and dedicated employees, and I am convinced that we will get through this together as one AVK – even stronger than before.
All the best,
Niels Aage Kjær, CEO & Owner, AVK Holding A/S
