COVID-19 crisis – AMEL staff partly return to work
Further to the French President’s speech of March
16 and the confinement imposed by our government, we had decided on March 17 to
suspend our production activity. Only a small team remained in the yard to
achieve the finishing works on two boats. Since then we have worked on how to
organize the return to work and on April 8 we could see 30% of our staff coming
back to the yard, all volunteers and all covered by our labour doctor’s
recommendations (personal protective equipment, tools disinfection, barrier
gestures, social distancing, etc.).
So, a few employees were able to return to their
work, in every stage of the production line. The workshops of course are still
very quiet compared to usual conditions, but we are very happy to have adapted
ourselves to the situation and to have managed a progressive return to our
activity. We are very grateful to our teams who submit themselves to these
particular working conditions. Our wish is to return to a full activity as soon
as possible, knowing that the new confinement period imposed by our government
is running until May 11.
Our partners such as carriers, crane operators
and harbour staff have also partially returned to work, and thanks to them we
could launch an Amel 50 last week.
This crisis has disturbed everyone and will keep
on disturbing a lot of people during several months. It keeps our minds busy
all day (and sometimes all night too!). But at Amel we have the will and the
resources to go back to our work, respecting all the rules imposed by the
current situation of course. Our staff is ready and is looking forward to being
fully operational again, in order to keep on building Amel yachts and to see
many of them sailing on all the seas very soon.
