While keeping the safety and protection of its employees and contractors as its first priority, Vallourec is doing its utmost to ensure the continuity of service to its clients. Operations and working conditions are maintained in strict conformance with the recommendations of the World Health Organization as well as governmental and local regulations. This is monitored by both local and corporate dedicated coordination cells.
For the time being notably, all Vallourec plants in Brazil, North America, Middle East Asia, UK and Germany are running normally. The French plants adapt shift patterns, targeting to ensure the continuity of our operations and protect customer services.
We are also leveraging the capabilities of our global industrial footprint to potentially reallocate orders from one plant or one country to another to absorb potential local service disruptions. On a case-by-case basis and depending on the evolution of the situation in the different regions of the world, our local teams will keep the customers informed of any developments.
In the face of this unprecedented situation, Vallourec Group is fully dedicated to support and maintain its service commitments.
