COVID-19 - Activity of the Barcodis Group

le 18 mars 2020

Dear customers, dear staff members,

In these difficult times, I wish you all a Bon Jour… (good day…)

The first two values of a company are its customers and its staff members. That’s why I’m speaking to all of you at the same time.
Before the storm, we were in an euphoric phase, both in terms of business development and the social and cultural dynamics of our group.
This commercial phase is likely to be very affected but our group will come out stronger and stronger after this ordeal.

We manufacture machines, labels, thermal ribbons, we install printers, mobile solutions, software, we maintain thousands of printers on- site for various industries: some of which are now producing to save lives or to feed us…
Our group has a social responsibility but also a societal one. It was therefore my responsibility to take these two aspects into account when deciding on the establishment of our continuation plan;

First priority: people (at your place, at ours)

Our machine production unit is shut down as well as the on-site installation and maintenance of the printers.
Our label production unit is in a light manufacturing process.
It is unthinkable to imagine our employees being infected for non-emergency missions as it is impossible to imagine that one of our infected employees could infect other people while working on site.
We show our civism by favoring respect for confinement to the detriment of the mercantile aspect.

Second priority: Serve you and not break urgent service to sensitive industries

We have set up an organization that allows us to guarantee you all the company’s services: urgent hot-lines, urgent deliveries, urgent maintenance and on-site set-up.
Large stocks of raw materials and spare parts, of consumables (ink ribbons, labels) and materials have been constituted.
We have manufacturing and emergency response teams on standby.

 

At a time when each business is wrapped up in its own company social responsibilities charter, I leave it to you, dear customers and staff members, to judge we act in this period of major crisis.

You can rely on the companies in our group BARCODIS to support you in a pragmatic way. In March, regardless of whether or not we will receive government support, all employees will be paid on their usual basis.
I thank everyone for their support and commitment.
We are proud to make our contribution to the continuation of our country’s industrial activity and we’ll be ready to bounce higher as soon as we defeat this virus together.

You can reach us at our usual numbers and emails.
Take care of one another.

Fabrice COEVOET
