EDITORIAL

 

Dear Partner,

 

A review of the events of recent months once again shows just how strong the entire Banner team actually is. Cohesion and perfect crisis management were in demand to an unprecedented extent and from the outset the company took the topic of COVID-19 very seriously. Not least due to this concern, the correct measures were implemented in order to ensure that this turbulent period could be successfully withstood in unison.

 

The rapidly installed crisis committee acted with foresight and constantly at just the right moment. Regular meetings, guidelines and canteen rules were initiated, home office regulations implemented and production suspended for two weeks in a move similar to that used by our OEM customers. In order to not only safeguard the jobs, but also first and foremost the health of all our employees, temporary short-time working measures were introduced at both our plant and branches. During the lockdown, Banner did not have a single case of corona in the plant, which also speaks for the efforts of the crisis committee.

 

 

 

 

Changes such as these indicate clearly the importance of a well-established team that can react flexibly and as a unit. We have long seen ourselves as a company that does not merely adjust to the changes deriving from current social trends, digitalisation or the fourth industrial revolution, but instead wishes to play an active role in shaping such transition. For us, this means scrutinising the working methods in all of our departments at regular intervals and the fact that self-reflection and quality controls within the framework of a continuous improvement process (CIP) are at the top of Banner’s daily agenda. Indeed, digitalisation and upheavals present opportunities for the further optimisation of products, procedures and service quality.


Gratitude is due to both our employees for their outstanding performance, as well as our loyal customers, who both during and after critical periods join us in designing the future. We look forward to working with you all on a return to top gear charged by the usual spark of innovativeness and Buffalo power!
