Germany: Beumer Group has published a technical report detailing changes to its operations due to the on-going Covid-19 outbreak. The group says that cement producers in some markets have changed to 50kg to 25kg bags. It also reported an increased rate of digitisation, less personal interaction with customers and an increased reliance on alternative fuels.
Cement head of sales Kay Wieczorek said, "Over past months, Covid-19 has forced us to cope with some changes. This will probably bother us even more in the colder months." He added, "Even if the Covid-19 figures are currently in progress, I am sure that BEUMER Group will come through this crisis pretty well; we just have to be well-prepared for it."
