This development has obvious consequences for our company and the long-term outcome cannot be predicted from today's perspective. Freight transport in Europe is currently being maintained, but freight volumes have decreased significantly. Transport is currently more difficult due to restricted access to ports, restrictions in international rail traffic and long waiting times at the border. Hödlmayr will of course - as far as this is possible - meet its obligations to customers and thus making their contribution to maintaining production and supply chains. We are constantly in close contact with our clients.
At the same time, we want to keep the risk for our employees as low as possible. We have taken extensive preventive measures to protect employees. Based on current information, there has been no case of coronavirus infection within the Hödlmayr organization. Individual administrative tasks are being fulfilled at home ("home office"). This method will be sustained as long as required.The accessibility for our customers will not be limited by these measures. However, it may take longer than usual to communicate or deal with inquiries. The Hödlmayr management team is in constant communication with the employees in order to evaluate the current situation and to react quickly. As an internationally operating corporate group, we have adapted the measures to the local requirements of the respective state.

Based on the current state of affairs, it can be assumed that this exceptional situation will likely remain for some time. We will inform you about all developments in our company in the news section of our website.
We wish you good health and a lot of strength to deal with this crisis!
The board of Hödlmayr International AG
