NEXO has gradually begun restarting its manufacturing operations in Plailly and Saint-Pierre-de-Côle. The return to normal service, in accordance with the guidelines of the French authorities, will involve adjusted working hours to meet health and safety protocols, and the current demand. Most of the company’s key suppliers have now resumed their own activity.
For several months, the NEXO team has been continuously adapting itself, staying proactive and agile in the face of the unprecedented challenges caused by the coronavirus. Jean Mullor, company CEO, explains that “our first goal remains the health of our employees, guaranteeing them a safe working environment and working practices that align with government guidelines and common-sense good behavior rules.”
NEXO R&D, Sales, Engineering support, and Administration teams will continue normal operations in the “unlockdown period”, principally working from home. Despite the difficult economic environment, NEXO has still managed to recruit new people into key positions in its Sales and R&D departments.
“We are keeping our operations running as smoothly as possible during the current situation,” continued Jean Mullor. “Our teams are reaching out to partners across the world to provide support during these tough times, and we are looking to find ways for NEXO to make a difference during this crisis. Unfortunately, it will be some time before customers will be allowed to visit NEXO sites but our Engineering Support and Sales teams have done a great job staying connected with our network through a programme of Audioversity webinars.”
