Germany’s Gauselmann Group, with 2,000 employees, has embarked on an extensive coronavirus testing programme.
Said CEO Paul Gauselmann: “We have infection numbers under control so far. We want to live up to our responsibility towards our employees and to the citizens of the region.”
A series of rapid tests in the Lübbecke plant of the company ensures that despite the incidence in the Minden-Lübbecke region, infection rates at the Gauselmann factories is very much under control.
The company said this week that this is mainly due to the co-operation with a local clinic in Minden and rapid testing. Managing director of the production factory in Lübbecke, Hans-martin Grube, in November decided to buy 1,500 rapid tests and these, with PCR tests, are proving useful. It means that the company can carry out tests even when there are no symptoms of infection.
