SCHOTTEL handling the Corona Pandemic

The world is currently facing particular challenges in coping with the effects of the corona pandemic. We take the duty of care towards our employees very seriously and have implemented numerous, officially recommended and self-imposed measures around the workplace of all employees to prevent their risk of infection.


These extensive preventive measures in all areas of the company will ensure a functioning supply chain of products at the present time. Further measures including travel restrictions prevent us, however, for example from offering a personal presence of a SCHOTTEL employee on site at any time.


SCHOTTEL will continue to do everything possible to maintain the services and support to customers during this challenging period. However, depending on the duration of the pandemic and potential escalation within our locations, plus our suppliers’, we will continue to monitor the situation closely. We will communicate with our customers regularly to keep them informed. We thank you for your continued support and kind understanding. Please get in touch with your local SCHOTTEL contact in case of any question. They will be happy to help.


We wish you and all family members and loved ones that everybody stays healthy and gets through this challenging time safely.
