Haulotte Group has announced the temporary closure of its three France-based manufacturing facilities, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The French manufacturer said this included the factories in L’Horme, Loire; Creusot, Saône et Loire and Reims, Marne. Haulotte said it would continue its distribution and service activities at those facilities.
The company added that it had also introduced measures at its wider distribution sites to allow their operation to continue. This will include greater telephone communication in France, as well as maintaining communication with its global customers.
In a statment, the company said, “Haulotte Group is not in a position to date to determine the global impact that this health crisis of unprecedented proportions will have on our industrial, commercial and financial performance.
”You can count on the mobilisation and commitment of all our teams to implement the most appropriate solutions in this unprecedented context. Haulotte thanks you for the confidence you have placed in us and together we will overcome this ordeal.”
