Good workload in spite of the Covid-19 situation

As the entire world is practically on stand-by, it is very positive, that we still have a good workload

With close to 1,000 employees at our GPV Electronics and Mechanics sites in Bangkok, Thailand, it takes careful planning to ensure that all preventive measures are met, like at the rest of our 11 sites. Production in Thailand is currently operating at a normal level, similar to the majority of GPVs sites worldwide.

"The overall status of our production capacity is good, and I am proud to say that our employees are highly dedicated to continuing production wherever possible. We do experience challenges with working at full capacity at some sites due to country-specific restrictions. The entire world is practically on stand-by, so it is very positive, that we still have a good workload and that the majority of our sites produce close to normal,” says Bo Lybaek, CEO at GPV and continues; “We are in close dialogue with our affected customers and do all we can to accommodate their needs in a fast and flexible manner.”

A special task force monitors the situation and is in good dialogue with the supply chain to secure deliveries of materials, taking the various countries’ restrictions and logistic challenges into account.
