Measures introduced by the SCHÄFER WERKE Group for dealing with the Corona Virus

Neunkirchen, June 2020. Due to the continuing spread of the Corona Virus, we as a group of companies have adopted a series of extensive measures for all our business units (EMW Steel Service Centre, SCHÄFER Perforated Metal, SCHÄFER Container Systems, SCHÄFER IT-Systems, VIZUU) to help contain case numbers, while at the same time providing as much protection as possible for our employees and their families, as well as our customers and service providers.
These measures will impact our daily activities, but will also ensure that we can continue our work as usual in a protected environment.



You will still be able to contact us by telephone and e-mail as usual. Meanwhile the changeover to home office working for administrative staff, in response to government measures (closure of schools and kindergartens), and to guarantee our ability to continue our activities is in full swing. Should these measures result in any delay in dealing with your enquiries, we hope you will understand.
You can find all the contact details for our business divisions here.


Visiting our locations in Neunkirchen, Betzdorf (Sieg), Ledec nad Sázavou (CZ), Treuen and Atlanta (USA) is currently only possible in exceptional circumstances. Your personal contact will keep you informed of any developments on this situation. We will continue to be available as usual by telephone and e-mail.


Delivery capability and production

At present, production and order processing operations are running without any restrictions. However, current developments make it very difficult for us to make any predictions on how the situation will develop. We assure you, however, that we will inform you immediately of any changes or delays, as soon as we can foresee them occurring. If this happens, your usual personal contact will of course inform you right away.

Suppliers and forwarding agents

Delivery and collection at our various locations is possible without any problems, as long as the clearly displayed instructions on site are complied with. As a supplier/forwarder, you will already have received information from us on this matter by e-mail.
You can find the appropriate form here.

Trade fairs and events

Until further notice, we have cancelled participation in all trade fairs and other events.

Our employees

Our employees are our most important asset. Protecting them and their families is our highest priority and is fully in line with the conception and expectations we have of ourselves as a family enterprise. They guarantee that all the daily business procedures within our group run smoothly. We can assure you that each individual person will be doing their best to ensure our business situation remains as normal as possible, despite the current uncertainty.


We would ask you to use the e-mail address for any press enquiries about Corona for all our different business units.

Strong together

We are sure we can rely on your understanding and support in complying with the measures we have introduced, all of which are ultimately intended to help minimise the health risk and comply with the requests made by the Federal Government. Our staff are kept regularly informed on the current status of our internal measures. An internal crisis management team evaluates the situation on a daily basis and, if required, takes short-term decisions on further action within the SCHÄFER WERKE Group. This page will keep you informed of any relevant developments or changes.
