Corona pandemic: what does igus do?

Status: The current restrictions in Germany have no impact on our production at the Cologne site. igus currently delivers from stock in Cologne and all other warehouses worldwide without any restrictions. We also do not currently see any impairment of the supply chains. In individual cases, however, there may be local delays in deliveries by transport companies, depending on the current situation. In most countries and at our headquarters in Cologne, a large number of employees are working from home to prevent infection. Wearing a face mask is strongly recommended in all public areas.

On this page, we provide an overview of the measures we have implemented to protect our employees, how we have been able to help through extensive face shield donations and which digital and analogue channels we offer to provide you with the best possible service during this time.
igus is open round the clock and is making deliveries faster than ever before. 5,000 orders leave our warehouse every day. In the video, we show you the measures we are taking to keep our factory and logistics apparatus running at all times without any restrictions as we have always done in the past.

Covid-19: Measures at the Cologne site

With a few exceptions, all igus motion plastics are manufactured at the headquarters in Cologne. Here, production is currently operating without restrictions. To ensure that this continues, we have implemented more than 250 preventive measures since February 2020, and not only those prescribed by the authorities but also others above and beyond them.

Face shields made and sponsored by igus®

We identified a problem in the production of medical protective shields and were able to produce 2,000 headbands for face shields daily via injection moulding. We donated the shields to non-profit and charitable institutions and educational establishments around the world.
