Duisburg, April 9, 2020. In view of the current exceptional circumstances caused by Covid-19, we are concentrating primarily on our activities in production and trade. Therefore, product and project development has been reduced and partially suspended. We have registered short-time work in Germany for the members of our project development team. This measure also applies to the assistance to the group management, because the management’s limited travel activities mean that there is little planning required. And we have also registered short-time work for start-up companies PCC Specialties GmbH and PolyU GmbH.
