As we all know the challenges continue!

Amid the daily disruptions caused by COVID-19, AAF expresses our sympathies to everyone around the world who is coping with the virus’s severe consequences.
Our first priority is the safety and well-being of our people, customers, suppliers and their families. Nothing is more important to us, today and always.

AAF and our people are doing what is possible to achieve social distancing, while continuing to provide the services and products our customers rely on. In many instances, AAF teams (which include our factory staff, site technicians and others) are performing vital, location-specific work, which cannot be performed remotely. I personally want to thank our dedicated professionals for the often mission-critical work they are doing every day in our plants, offices and at customer sites.

It has been proven over the recent months that good performing filters are systemically relevant to our society and can help to reduce the spread of the viruses. And our new mobile units can give a short term relieve in buildings, especially in the approaching cold season, when regular, extensive ventilation through open doors and windows is more difficult to implement.

Finally, we salute the doctors, nurses, first responders and many other people who are going to great lengths to help our neighbours and communities in distress. We admire their courage, applaud their sacrifices and are inspired by their example.

Stay safe and well,

Dr. Stefan Berbner Chief Operating Officer
