AT&S Uses Temporary Corona Short-Time Work for the Fehring Plant


Reading time ( words)

Due to the global weakness in demand in the automotive and industrial electronics sectors, which has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, and the associated decline in orders for the AT&S plant in Fehring, the company has decided to take advantage of temporary short-time working as a stop-gap measure for the AT&S Fehring location, starting on July 1st. Due to the current situation in these industries, a sensible utilization of the production capacities cannot be maintained. The planning envisages the short-time working measures to be set for the next three months; if the currently very volatile situation has largely normalized by then, normal operation can then be resumed.

Of its 10,000 employees worldwide, AT&S currently employs 400 people at its Fehring location, 320 of whom are affected by short-time work. AT&S produces products for the automotive and industrial electronics industries in Fehring. Despite the current weakness in demand, both sectors are growth sectors due to trends such as e-mobility, autonomous driving, digitalization in industry, etc. The corresponding growth impulses can therefore be expected again after an economic recovery.

EIPC Technical Snapshot: A European Roundup

Although it was originally proposed to hold a one-day face-to-face EIPC conference in Frankfurt, travel restrictions in Germany made this impractical. But the Technical Snapshot webinar format has proved so successful that it was decided to run an extended version as an alternative—two sessions, with three presentations each. It worked extremely well. The carefully selected program on February 23 featured excellent speakers, and seamless organisation added up to an outstanding event.
