Production at the Broshuis trailer factories in the Netherlands will start running again on Tuesday 2 June.

The Dutch government announced it will start to relax restrictions. Broshuis said it introduced measures in its factories to make it corona proof where possible. Pieter-Bas Broshuis commented, “The Kampen region was a severely affected area and we did not want to take any unnecessary risks. Safety is really our top priority. We are working hard to get the factory safe and there is now enough PPE [personal protective equipment] to be able to use in the factories if the 1.5 metre distance cannot be handled. This allows everyone to perform their work safely and with confidence.

“In addition, most international suppliers have restarted their production in recent days and the materials are now being delivered again, sparsely. A trailer has about 1,000 components but, if one is missing, we cannot finish it. So with our supply chain coming back in line, this is a sign for us to resume production.”

Broshuis said it will be able to start at almost full speed on 2 June. Coronavirus created trailer delivery delays but appropriate action had to be taken for staff and customer safety.
