CMC Engineering Export GmbH thriving amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic

At a time when the COVID-19 pandemic has posed a great threat to the global economy, CMC Engineering Export GmbH has managed to remain strong and undefeated. With the many safety precautions followed by the management as well as the staff, CMC Engineering Export GmbH got back on track and is providing their usual services to their clientele. The company has been running with minimal staff since April 2020 and since 11th May 2020 has been running smoothly amidst strict sanitary precautions with all staff reporting to work.



The management has made it mandatory that all employees wear a face mask at all times. Daily temperatures of employees are checked and recorded.

The sales and service staff have also been provided with the necessities such as face masks and hand sanitizer to ensure their safety while on the go. The equipment and the spare parts are handled with caution by our service team.


At a time when other establishments were losing the battle against COVID-19 and were lagging in business, CMC with its farsighted initiatives and flexible business model managed to stay on top of things without any negative consequences towards the staff or the company. Thanks to our suppliers who provided goods continuously during the pandemic and our customers who kept supporting us by placing orders even at this difficult time, CMC managed well at a time when only a few companies were functioning. The sales revenue which was growing steadily from January to March 2020 took a different turn during April and May with the sales of Ecolab products rising at a significant pace. .
