Closing of the sale of the inkjet printer business (PiXDRO) by Meyer Burger (Netherlands) B.V.
Introduction of short-time working at the Swiss sites in Thun and Hauterive due to COVID-19 pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic is having a significant impact on the world economy and thus also on the global solar industry. Temporary plant closures and restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic at customers also delay Meyer Burger's activities. After Meyer Burger's employees at the Hohenstein-Ernstthal (Germany) site have already been working short-time since 16 March 2020, the company will now introduce short-time working for its Swiss sites in Thun and Hauterive as from 6 April 2020. This measure shall help Meyer Burger to compensate for the consequences of COVID-19 pandemic and to reduce personnel costs.
In addition, the Board of Directors and the Executive Board of Meyer Burger have decided, as a sign of solidarity and in favour of the company, to immediately waive 15 percent of the remuneration of the Board of Directors and their salaries for the period of the COVID-19 crisis.
