The coronavirus pandemic presents us all with new challenges and developments are uncertain. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your trust and understanding. In times like these, we must all pull together to keep the economy going and also to safeguard our jobs.

Together with the authorities, we have further tightened our hygiene measures after we had our first confirmed case of coronavirus (Covid-19) in the company a week ago. Thanks to our employees, who are very disciplined in complying with the regulations. Therefore, there have been no further infections and we can continue to produce.

Nevertheless, we have decided to bring forward our annual summer vacation to the last week of April in addition to our long weekend over Easter. We will close our plant from Monday April 27 to Thursday April 30 2020 (calendar week 18). After the international public holiday on May 1 and the following weekend, we will be back as usual on Monday, May 4.

Please understand that we will completely close our company during the four day company holiday. This holiday will help our employees to recover in these difficult times and also to prepare for the coming months in the context of the coronavirus pandemic.

We wish you all a Happy Easter and relaxing holidays!

Stay healthy! Together we can do it! We will keep you up to date.

Praher Plastics confirms the first corona case at its plant in Schwertberg. At the moment we are in close coordination with the authorities about further measures. We wish the Covid-19 sufferers a full recovery and look forward to seeing them again soon. We take the protection of our employees, customers and partners very seriously and we support the fight against the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19). The measures already implemented in the company demand a high degree of discipline and concentration from our team. In order to allow our staff to take a break from work, we will therefore keep production closed on Good Friday and the Tuesday after Easter.

We will keep you informed about further developments and additional measures due to our first Corona case in the company. Stay healthy!

Our products are used in numerous applications such as the drinking water treatment, hospitals, medical research facilities and the chemical industry. The maintenance of these areas is vital and important, especially in the current situation. To be able to provide spare parts quickly in emergencies, we try to keep production running. Thus, we can assist these areas in the supply of drinking water and the production of products such as disinfectants because we can supply spare parts quickly in case of an emergency.

In order to protect our employees in the production in the best possible way, our measures with regard to the coronavirus (Covid-19) are constantly checked and adapted. In doing so, we adhere to the strict guidelines of the government. The Praher Plastics Team is continuously informed about the latest developments.
Currently, more than one third of the workforce is already enabled to work from home. Further employees, where the current operation allows it, will also be able to switch to mobile working in the next few days. There is currently no case of Corona in the company.

After the numerous measures taken by our government over the weekend due to the coronavirus (Covid-19), the management of Praher Plastics has decided to act quickly in order to reduce the social contacts in the company to a minimum. We are currently working hard to enable those employees – whose work is not bound to the company’s location in Schwertberg – to work from home. Our production continues under strict hygiene regulations. There is currently no case of corona in the company. Our employees are constantly informed about the latest developments and measures.

Please understand that visits to our site in Schwertberg are not possible at the moment. Travel activities of our employees have been discontinued and meetings are held virtually as far as possible. The Praher Plastics Team is still available for you by phone and mail. We are trying to handle all orders as fast as possible and with highest quality.

All this would not be possible without our employees, who show full commitment and flexibility especially in these difficult times. For this we thank you sincerely!

We will keep you informed about further developments. Stay healthy!
