Earthquake in Türkiye causes destruction, suffering and grief.

Heavy earthquakes in Türkiye and Syria killed several thousand people and destroyed many buildings on Monday. The death toll has risen to more than 4200 so far.

People in the affected regions are mourning their losses and fighting the effects of the quake.

Our plant in Izmir and our employees were spared from the events and we continue to manufacture without restrictions. Unfortunately, relatives, friends and acquaintances of our staff live in the affected regions, our thoughts are with you.

Our management decided today to help immediately and extensively. The first aid delivery has already been put together and sent out. Furthermore, we are in dialogue with various aid organisations.

We offer our deepest condolences to the families and loved ones, and wish all those injured a speedy recovery.
