By manufacturing input systems, sensors and housings for vital equipment during the corona pandemic, Hoffmann + Krippner was classified as a critical infrastructure (KRITIS) and thus declared system relevant.
Even before COVID-19, H+K was developing and producing input systems, sensors and housings for medical technology. Since the outbreak of the corona pandemic, the top priority has been to supply medical equipment manufacturers with our components so that lives can continue to be successfully saved.
H+K was therefore classified as a KRITIS company. Critical infrastructures (KRITIS) are organisations with important significance for the state community. A failure or impairment of these organisations would lead to lasting supply bottlenecks, significant disruption to public security or other dramatic consequences.
The production of keyboards, touchscreens and housings for, for example, respirators and infusion pumps is thus one of the most important, and in some cases vital, goods and services for the population.
By classifying Hoffmann + Krippner as a KRITIS company, we expect a simplification in the procurement of materials and the possibility of emergency childcare for employees directly involved in the supply chain.
