The production operations of ELRA in Jois

Dear Sirs,

The situation surrounding the COVID 19 pandemic is a particular challenge for all of us. We support all efforts and measures by the federal government to curb the spread. The protection of our employees and their relatives, as well as our customers and partners, is our top priority.

We have taken all the necessary technical and organizational measures to ensure that the company operates as freely as possible. Our employees are now available to you in the same quality through home office workstations.
Therefore we stay available for you via the usual communication channels you are familiar with. Please understand, however, if the response times are longer than usual.
We will hold customer appointments and meetings in the near future, preferably in the form of video or telephone conferences.

The production operations of ELRA in Jois will continue unrestriced until further notice.
Here, too, we have taken extensive measures to ensure the health protection of our employees!
