Minol-ZENNER Group supports fight against coronavirus

Last week, the Minol-ZENNER Group donated medical equipment worth 4.5 million renminbi – roughly equivalent to 600,000 euro – to the Shanghai Charity Foundation. The measurement devices will be used to help treat seriously ill patients.

February 2020 – The Minol-ZENNER Group and China have a long tradition together. The company has been operating in the country for more than 20 years and currently runs five sites there, staffed by over 2,000 employees. “We have a strong connection to the country and its people and are very grateful for the way the Minol-ZENNER Group has been able to flourish in China. For that reason, there was never any doubt we would help in the fight against the coronavirus at this difficult time,” explains Alexander Lehmann, CEO of the Minol-ZENNER Group. The specialist measuring technology company has donated medical equipment to the value of 4.5 million renminbi (approximately 600,000 euro), which is to be used in the treatment of coronavirus patients.

Handover ceremony in Shanghai

Last week, Peter Yang, General Manager of ZENNER China, presented the donation to Guoping Fang, Vice President of the Shanghai Charity Foundation, and Wendong Xu, Vice President of Huashan Hospital – one of the hospitals whose team will be using the new equipment in Wuhan. Wendong Xu accepted the donation with gratitude: “Minol-ZENNER has a reputation for precise measurements. The fact the company is applying its core expertise in the medical sector during the current situation and donating high-precision health monitoring equipment will really benefit our patients.” Germany’s Consul General, Dr. Christine Althauser, had this to add: “I would like to thank the Minol-ZENNER Group for its exemplary display of commitment. I am certain this generous donation will play in important part in addressing equipment shortages in hospitals.”

Consequences of the coronavirus

Since the coronavirus broke out in Wuhan, all the subsidiaries and staff of the Minol-ZENNER Group in China have been supporting efforts to prevent and stem the epidemic. They are pulling together to fight the coronavirus and, as far as possible, safeguarding the delivery and service guarantee for domestic and global customers.
