The EJOT magazine

Dear partners of the EJOT Group,

For most of us, these days mark the anniversary of the time we have spent under the influence of the COVID-19 crisis. A year that few of us could have imagined or were prepared for. It was an emotional rollercoaster for many of us. From the first “malaise” when the pandemic approached, to serious worries about our own health or that of our loved ones, from economic fears to feelings of isolation and the loss of many things we take for granted. All regions and countries were affected at different times, sometimes feeling as if they had withstood the virus and then again looking into the abyss of skyrocketing incidence rates, rising R-values and other words that we did not know before and which now easily come off our lips. And by now, most of us also know someone who has died with or from COVID-19.

Our group of companies got through this crisis comparatively well, which we could not have imagined in the 2nd quarter of 2020. When orders on hand in the automotive industry are canceled or postponed to the distant future, as in the last week of March of the previous year, one looks to the future with great concern. We have all learned a lot during that time. We have adopted hygiene rules, separated shifts and concentrated on maintaining our ability to deliver and, with a bit of luck, we have managed to remain a reliable partner for our customers. This went from communicating with our customers and suppliers through new digital channels to flexibility in production and supply chain. Therefore we have made the topic of flexibility the focus of this issue of moment. In this magazin we write about what tasks we were faced with and how we approached them. A central question is how sustainable and crisis-proof is our supply chain and what can we do to further secure this chain.

“Come gather ’round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You’ll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you is worth savin’
And you better start swimmin’
Or you’ll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin’ ”

This Bob Dylan song is one of my favourites. It is a reminder that our world is constantly changing and we should prepare and adapt to it. Easily said and written, but we must work together to ensure that we continue to suceed at the task.

Do you have any suggestions? Criticism or feedback? We are looking forward to it.
Please talk to our employees or write to us (moment@ejot.de).

Yours sincerely,

Christian F. Kocherscheidt
Managing Director
