GSV reorganises for virus
By Euan Youdale23 March 2020
Denmark-based rental company GSV Materieludlejning has been adjusting to the coronavirus with a new way of working.
Company CEO Dan Vorsholt said amid the closure of all public amenities, shopping malls, bars and restaurants, construction activity in the country remains relatively strong.
He added, “Soon after the first announcement from the government we set up a new way to work. We have revolving teams, so, team one works in week one, and team two works in week two, and so on.” At the weekend the facilities are not used and are prepared for the following working week, ensuring there is 48 hours before the next team takes over, therefore reducing the risk of infection.
Vorsholt adds, “We have a fairly normal operation in terms of turnover, number of orders, material preparation etc., but it can change from day-to-day. We have a plan for what we do if the country is completely shut down and to ensure proper liquidity preparedness. The same is true for our employers, because we need them on the other side of the Coronavirus.
“We are in daily dialogue with our customers and especially the larger construction sites to see if we can support them in keeping the construction sites ongoing.”
