We are currently in an unknown and challenging situation. The pace at which COVID-19 is now spreading globally affects us all.
Needless to say, our number one priority is the health and safety of our 6,500 employees working across the world, our customers and our partners. We are therefore continuously taking the necessary actions and restrictions to keep everyone safe.
Our second priority is to keep on creating great value for our customers and to continue our collaborations with our partners. Both these priorities demand that Hempel is in business.
And we are indeed in business – taking care of our partners, customers and their assets all over the world despite the difficult conditions.
No one knows how long the COVID-19 challenge will continue. What I can say with certainty is that Hempel will get through this. This will happen because of our strong financial foundation; because of our leaders and employees, who are making an exceptional, dedicated effort under difficult circumstances; because of our valued customers, who trust us and entrust their assets to us; and because of our great relationships with much appreciated partners.
