Medical supplies for doctors and hospitals: More than 5 million masks have already arrived
Bernd Althusmann, Minister of Economic Affairs of Lower Saxony, said: Volkswagen is sending out a strong signal through its commitment to lower Saxony in this exceptional situation. The availability of medical protective equipment is a key factor in combating the coronavirus pandemic and will help in ensuring that our health system remains stable and functions reliably despite the crisis.
Volkswagen HR Board Member Gunnar Kilian said: The battle against coronavirus has not yet been won. Everyone and every company must help to curb the spread of the virus. This is why health protection takes absolute priority, also during the resumption of production. Medical practitioners and nurses continue to need our full support. For them, the fight against coronavirus is a marathon. Volkswagen is helping them with its donation. Our Procurement, Health, Finance and Logistics teams have devoted their full effort to this project.
The Chairman of the Volkswagen Group Works Council Bernd Osterloh said: „Our colleagues are proud that Volkswagen at this point in time supports this major effort to safeguard supplies.
As the company itself did not have the requested quantities of materials available, experts from Group Health, Group Procurement, Group Logistics and Group Finance cooperated closely to ensure supplies to the facilities concerned as quickly as possible.
