Putzmeister and Sany are committed
Fighting the Corona Virus together
As a global player and member of the Chinese Sany Group, Putzmeister is supporting the worldwide commitment and fighting against the previously unknown Corona virus. Protective equipment for medical personnel is becoming scarce in hospitals in Wuhan and help from abroad is needed.
The demand for protective masks and suits has skyrocketed not only in China - the demand worldwide is so high that manufacturers have long since been unable to meet the demand. As announced by this industry, it primarily supplies regular customers. This is a great advantage for Putzmeister, since protective masks and suits, for example, have always been needed for painting.
Rapid support with 20,000 protective masks and 50,000 protective suits
Shipping manager Stefan Frank, Georg Metzner and Kevin Haefner purchasers at Putzmeister department in Aichtal check the pallets with protective suits and masks before they are flown to China.
"We are quite proud that we can actively help to fight the corona virus," reports Georg Metzner, purchaser at Putzmeister Holding GmbH. "Thanks to our existing purchasing sources, we were able to obtain this considerable amount of protective equipment at short notice and send the first deliveries to China in advance with commercial airlines."
Global networking and Putzmeister logistics make it possible
Helping is one thing - bringing relief efforts to the scene is another. “Another 20 pallets were flown from Germany to China in a Chinese government jumbo in early February – as direct support for Wuhan. All in all, material worth a high 6-figure amount, ”says Metzner. "
