COVID-19 has shown us that many companies have stopped their production. This was not the case of J.Juan who, despite the fourteen-day stop suffered in Spain and India, has continued to serve his customers from the Jianxing plant in China and from Fides (electronic) in Sant Cugat del Valles (Barcelona)
Barcelona’s tube and brake manufacturing plants were forced to cease their activity in Spain due to the state of alarm until April 14, as it was considered a non-essential activity by the Spanish government.
In that span, Fides (J. Juan’s electronic division) maintained its manufacturing activity due to its electro-medicinal production, which was much needed during this pandemic.
As of April 14, J. Juan began production activity again in the plants following a strict health safety protocol that has prevented all its 480 workers from being directly affected by COVID-19.
Production has been incorporated with a specific schedule that allows us to meet market requirements while safeguarding the health of workers. Those who are not strictly necessary in the production plant are developing their functions in Telework mode.
Given the circumstances that have come to life, J. Juan’s management has been very satisfied with the solutions adopted to be able to combine health and production in the hope of being at the levels of February 2020 in a short space of time.
