Information from Müller-BBM GmbH on the handling of the corona pandemic (as at 03/2020)

Müller-BBM GmbH is fully aware of their social and economic responsibility in dealing with the corona pandemic and shoulders it comprehensively to the extent described below. Due to the dynamic development and the permanently changing requirements on behalf of the authorities, we immediately react to possible changes and constantly reassess the situation and the measures resulting for our company. The current situation has an impact on the living and working conditions of our colleagues and clients.

In order to shoulder our entrepreneurial responsibility we act according to the recommendations of the German government, the regulations of the federal states and the relevant authorities issuing recommendations for action in dealing with the corona virus, primarily the Robert Koch Institute (RKI).

As things stand at present, Müller-BBM GmbH is fully operational both technically, organizationally and in terms of staff. It has always been of central importance to us to communicate with our business partners in an honest and transparent way. At the moment, our ability to act and our operational precautions can be outlined as follows.

We would like to thank our employees and our partners for compliance with the rules and appreciate your understanding.
