Miele implements short-time working at all German locations
Miele is to scale down production at all of its German sites and is preparing for short-time working from 1st April due to the impact of coronavirus on the supply of components, and considerable sales disruption caused by enforced business closures in the retail trade.
The current plans are for short-time working to apply until the end of the Easter break, but this may be extended to reflect further developments in the spread of the virus.
The family-run business will also scale down all associated functions to maintain only a skeleton service. These measures will take effect on April 1 and remain in place until April 19.
The company said that sales will continue, with products available for order via the internet without any restrictions. Necessary repair work will also continue to be performed by Service, with respect to both private consumers and commercial clients such as hospitals.
