Bischof + Klein helps

03. April 2020

Bischof + Klein is helping to fight the spread of the coronavirus. In a relief campaign, packaging and film specialist Bischof + Klein donated 4,000 respiratory protection masks and disinfectants for doctors' practices in Lengerich together with the machine manufacturer Windmöller & Hölscher.

Bischof + Klein is also taking action in other locations. B+K Konzell, for instance, spontaneously provided 1,000 litres of isopropanol from its stocks. A pharmacy in neighbouring Bogen used this to produce disinfectant.

During the coronavirus pandemic, Bischof + Klein's primary objectives are to protect its employees and ensure that production of its films and packaging is disrupted as little as possible. They are indispensable for supplying the population with foodstuffs and medicines, for instance, in this crisis situation and are classified as being of systemic importance.

In particular, Bischof + Klein's technical films are urgently required. Demand for protective film for plastic sheets and films used in the production of protective masks, protective goggles and partition walls has suddenly soared. "We were able to react immediately in this case thanks to speedy coordination between the sales, planning and operations departments. We would like to thank all of our colleagues whose commitment is making this possible," explained Dr. Tobias Lührig, CEO of Bischof + Klein.
