Report on the current situation
Issue 40 - 10/2020
The management and employees at AMAZONEN-WERKE have done everything they can over the past few months to ensure that operations continue as normally as possible, even under the restrictions implemented as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Fortunately, we have been able to avoid delays in the delivery of our products and have not had to implement any radical measures for our employees to observe.
We are particularly grateful to all Amazone customers from all over the world who have remained loyal to us in spite of the challenging circumstances. In addition to ongoing sales, it was essential for us to continue receiving deliveries from our suppliers, especially during the critical phase of the pandemic in March and April. Amazone has certainly also benefited from the fact that we usually keep a buffer stock of key components in our own warehouses.
Up to now, we have been able to continue manufacturing agricultural machinery at all Amazone Group production sites without interruption. Our groundcare plant in Forbach, France, was the only location seriously affected by the crisis. Operations had to be suspended temporarily at the beginning of the pandemic due to the high number of infections in the Grand Est region. In total, only a few people contracted the virus there and they have since all returned to work in good health.
Thanks to the outstanding commitment of the entire Amazone team, we have so far been able to maintain our total turnover at a stable level. We would like to thank everyone involved, but especially our loyal customers and partners for their commitment and efforts. We will continue to do everything in our power to provide you with quality advice and assistance as well as our usual outstanding products.
The AMAZONEN-WERKE Management team
