The Norwegian wool clothing specialist Devold of Norway, with its European subsidiary in Buchenberg near Kempten in southern Germany and its Lithuanian factories, today commented on the measures it is taking in the face of the coronavirus pandemic. Since the company is not dependent on deliveries from any other factories – in China or elsewhere in the world – and since inventories and supplies in Lithuania are secured, Devold can take the effective measures to prevent the spreading of the virus while maintaining production and operations. “Our top priority is to contribute to slowing down the spread of corona,” said Herbert Horelt, managing director of the company’s German subsidiary. The measures include home-office work for all employees who are able to work remotely (except customer service), suspension of all business trips, 100 percent digital administration, no external or internal meetings, extensive hygiene and disinfection procedures and sufficient distance between those staff still working at the factory or one of the company’s offices. The brand’s customer service can still be reached as usual.
