Why does the PKV continue to produce?
Packaging material is urgently needed in the food and medical goods industry, especially in times of pandemics.
Without appropriate packaging material, the transport of important goods such as food or medical supplies, but also of other goods for daily needs, is hardly possible. The PKV uses waste paper to produce the raw material for corrugated board and cardboard packaging, which is even in greater demand at present during the coronavirus pandemic. This is the most important reason why PKV continues to produce while strongly protecting its employees: What we produce is needed!
PKV takes the health of its employees, customers, partners, suppliers and visitors very seriously. We want to do everything we can to help slow the spread of the coronavirus. Currently (as of 03/30/2020), we fortunately do not have a single Covid-19 illness among our employees.

We too are concerned about the impact of the pandemic on the highly networked global economy and its logistics chains. In view of the spread of the virus, problems in the logistics chains cannot be ruled out in the future, despite all the preparations. At present, however, we are not yet faced with such challenges.
