Protection measures worldwide in the JÄGER Group
Since the beginning of the Corona crisis, we at JÄGER have faced the challenges together and openly with our business partners. Health and protection of all persons involved in our business continues to be our top priority. Our COVID 19 staff centrally coordinates all strategic guidelines regarding infection protection and closely consults with the respective site managers on site. The COVID-19 infection protection plan drawn up by the crisis team is binding for all companies of the JÄGER Group. It is based on the SARS-CoV‑2 industrial safety standard published by the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs as well as further specifications of the individual federal states and communities. When implementing it, we also observe the country-specific and regional regulations applicable worldwide.
We in the JÄGER Group were confronted early on with the high risk of infection by COVID-19. Already in January 2020, we developed a corona protection plan for our colleagues in Shenzhen (China). This enabled us to comply with the extensive requirements of the Chinese authorities and to resume business operations in China already in mid-February 2020.
We then implemented this experience in our European plants (Germany, the Netherlands and Poland) and then logically also in the USA and Canada.
We have received many inquiries as to whether we can currently maintain our ability to deliver.
Yes, we can: At present, our production is running in all plants of the JÄGER Group. Our suppliers are also still able to deliver, because 96 % of our suppliers are located within the EU, 80 % are based in Germany. Thus, we can guarantee delivery reliability through short distances.
