Siltronic AG against Corona: Donation of 1,000 protective overalls for disaster control Altötting

Siltronic AG is helping local medical facilities with a donation of urgently needed protective overalls. This week, the company handed over 1,000 protective overalls to District Administrator Erwin Schneider of the Altötting District Office. In recent weeks, there has been a shift in demand for personal protective equipment to cope with the corona crisis. Whereas disinfectants and FFP2 masks were scarce at first, protective gowns and overalls are now the primary source of supply.

"At a time when protective equipment is scarce everywhere, it was a given for us to donate the protective overalls. We hope that in doing so we can support and protect some of the people in the healthcare sector who are currently doing such a great job," says Dr. Christoph von Plotho, CEO of Siltronic AG.

The originally packed protective overalls come from Siltronic's own stocks and were originally purchased for employees working in the clean room. The Altötting District Office will be responsible for distributing the protective overalls as needed for the hospitals in Altötting and Burghausen.

District Administrator Schneider is grateful for the spontaneous willingness to donate: "The fact that we received a direct response to our inquiry on the same day shows Siltronic's commitment to the region. The donation will bring great relief to those affected. Thanks to Siltronic's help, the employees in the two hospitals will be able to protect themselves sufficiently and thus ensure the best possible care for all patients".
