I express my personal appreciation to the Viessmann and Hoffmann families for demonstrating responsibility in times of crisis and showing solidarity, generosity and living by their values”. “I encourage more businesses, either small or large, to come together with their associates regionally and globally to battle Covid“ said Kanishka Arumugam, the Co-CEO of EKKI said.
Max Viessmann, Viessmann Co-CEO of Viessmann Group said: “The global coronavirus pandemic will only end when it ends for everyone – worldwide. The fight against the pandemic requires global solidarity. That is why we are thinking beyond the borders of our own country and providing unbureaucratic help to the people in those regions most severely affected by the pandemic. The way we deal with the coronavirus crisis today will determine how we remember this time in the future – hopefully with pride and the awareness of having achieved a new level of solidarity.”
