Kelheim Fibres stops travels to and from China
Because of the unpredictable risks arising from the Corona virus, the viscose speciality fibre manufacturer Kelheim Fibres has decided to stop all business trips to and from China for the time being.
“We recognise our responsibility towards our customers and our employees. Their health and safety come first”, explains Matthew North, Commercial Director of Kelheim Fibres. Among other things, Kelheim Fibres manufactures hygiene fibres that are used, for example, in tampons and other personal care products. These highly sensitive products have been also taken into account in making this decision.
The Bavarians operate their own representative office in Shanghai and are supplier for many Chinese companies.
“We wish China and its population that the measures taken will lead to a rapid containment of the virus”, adds Matthew North.
