Information on the situation COVID-19

Due to the current situation around Sars-CoV-2 / COVID-19 and the further aggravating global effects, we would like to inform you about the following

The health and safety of our employees always has the highest priority. Our emergency plan has been in force since 02.03.2020.

Since the beginning of the spread of COVID-19, EPHY-MESS has promptly and continuously developed and implemented measures to protect employees and our partners. We will continue to do this consistently.

We are continuously monitoring and evaluating the latest developments and adapting protective measures accordingly. In addition to reports from political and official bodies, such as the Federal Ministry of Health or the Robert Koch Institute, we also maintain close contact with the administrative staff and the disaster control staff of the city of Wiesbaden due to the commitment of the management, in order to react to changed situations as quickly as possible.

At present, this has no impact on our production processes, material supply, order processing or upcoming deliveries. The security measures taken allow us to continue operations under the given conditions. The supply chain is fully secured.


So we are still at your disposal!


The next weeks are certainly crucial, not only for the German economy. Much will depend on whether the measures and political decisions taken have the desired effect of containing the virus, reducing the number of new infections and supporting the economy.

Should there occur any negative influences within the next days and weeks, which affect your inquiries or orders, we will inform you personally and coordinate the further procedure together with you.

We do everything possible to maintain production and our service, in order to support you as our customers and business partners in the best possible way also in the future.

Our sales team is still available via the existing communication channels such as telephone, fax and e-mail and via the contact form on our website.

Extraordinary situations require extraordinary solutions. EPHY-MESS is always a reliable partner at your side. The current developments will certainly not leave us unaffected and the overall economic consequences will be enormous and cannot yet be grasped in their full extent.

BUT: Even in times of crisis, we try to focus on the positive, despite a currently lower order volume. We are doing everything possible to dampen the crisis. One thing is certain, however, we will emerge from this corona pandemic stronger than before and wish the same to you, our business partners.

The following emergency measures have already been adopted and implemented:


We have informed our employees in detail about precautionary and hygiene measures. Notices and hygiene tips were posted throughout the company and measures to prevent infection were introduced, such as maintaining the prescribed minimum distances in production and offices or providing protective masks and disinfectants. In addition, cleaning intervals were extended and intensified.

Internal and external cooperation

Visiting contacts and business trips were suspended for 4 weeks. We reserve the right to extend this period beyond the Easter holidays after a thorough risk assessment. Important meetings or presence appointments will be held by telephone or video conference if necessary. The number of meetings and discussions has been reduced to the bare minimum and limited to the smallest possible number of people.


Travel returnees from business and private trips entering from the risk areas identified by the Robert Koch Institute were instructed not to enter the company and to quarantine themselves at home.

Notification obligation

Employees who have had contact with corona infected persons or someone in their immediate environment who is ill with COVID-19 were obliged to report this immediately to their supervisor and the Human Resources Department. The same applies if they themselves show symptoms of a respiratory disease or believe they have been infected with Corona. A doctor must be consulted, regardless of the suspected case.

Working in the office / mobile working

In consultation with the divisional managers, the management has made work arrangements such as home office, shift schedules and rotation procedures, which are mainly carried out on a two-weekly basis. This ensures the functionality of the respective areas. Even in the event of an infection of individual employees, a cluster procedure in accordance with the pandemic plan ensures that business operations are maintained.


To protect our employees and to maintain workflows, processes and procedures in production, EPHY-MESS has implemented and will continue to implement the recommendations of national and international authorities and institutions in addition to its own security measures.
