INFORMATIONS TO OUR BUSINESS PARTNERS - STATE APRIL 01, 2020
Dear business partners,
the health of our employees is very important to us. We also want and must not forget that you have a legitimate interest in receiving your deliveries on time and that your contact persons are available for you as usual.
In this context we would like to inform you about our measures to contain the spread of the coronavirus at IMM Photonics GmbH.
Of course, hygiene is a top priority for us. In addition to the standard hand disinfectant dispensers already available, we now also provide hand disinfectants containing a special antiviral agent.
Our employees at the Unterschleissheim plant work from their home office as much as possible. Those who are in the office all work in individual offices in order to have as great a distance as possible to their colleagues. The developers all work in the home office. Should experiments in the laboratory be necessary, the laboratory capacities are divided up so that they cannot meet each other.
For our employees in the Teisnach plant (production), we have introduced a flexible break regulation, which is designed in such a way that breaks are carried out in 3 groups and, in addition, a time interval between groups is designed in such a way that a meeting in the changing rooms or in the corridors is excluded. The workplaces are generously designed so that the recommended distance of 2 m is maintained.
In order to minimise the risk of subcontracting, we have already taken precautions and increased the storage values accordingly. We have also taken account of the fact that transport chains can be delayed.
As far as possible, we have also pre-produced goods so that deliveries can still be made if the Teisnach plant has to be closed down. In agreement with the health department of the district of Munich, we are permitted to send employees from Unterschleissheim to Teisnach, who can carry out deliveries from the warehouse there. If this should occur, deliveries will only be made once a week. There could therefore be slight deviations in the delivery dates from the confirmed dates.
Furthermore, we have decided to leave a small team at home in the production department, so that in case of a closure, production could be started earlier again with a small team.
Currently we have no breakdowns due to Corona. We know that this can change very quickly.
We will of course react to current changes and make appropriate adjustments. In this case we will inform you accordingly on our website.
