motan informs about COVID-19
In the last year, the COVID-19 virus has resulted in an unprecedented upheaval to our daily lives. We would like to assure you that even in these difficult and unpredictable times we are still here for you and are committed to supporting you our customers with advice, service and spare parts. We are also taking all necessary and recommended steps flexible to slow-down the spread of the COVID-19 virus and to protect our employees, their families, our customers, and our suppliers.
The extensive hygiene precautions we have put into place and your caution have made this partial success possible. However, we all know that the crisis is not yet over. As soon as a large part of the population around the world will be vaccinated, we can count on relaxed measures in our everyday life.
Because the situation and respective measures and restrictions are different from country to country, the implementation of these measures is the responsibility of each region and company. In addition, group management and the German companies meet weekly to discuss whether further measures are necessary or whether we can start to think about easing restrictions.
Digital sales & consulting - your direct contact to us, customized and flexible.
New specifications always result in new opportunities and possibilities for our customers. We think contact and communication with our customers are important factors to work successful together. That is why we try to adapt flexibly to the new challenges depending on the situation. For our customers we offer digital solutions for consulting and more information via our online channels. If this is not possible, a visit with sufficient distance and with provided medical masks is also feasible for us. Service, repair and maintenance are carried out either in accordance with the appropriate hygiene measures or even completely virtually. In accordance with hygiene regulations, we offer employees either shared workplaces with sufficient space between them or the option of working from home. Communication is mainly digital.

- We have a central, transparent management of replacement parts in place within the motan group.
- We have a continuous process to optimize and improve the supply chain, which is dynamically adapted to the current situation.
Note: The currently good parts availability can change dynamically due to external influences. We will regularly keep you informed about changes in delivery times.
