NürnbergMesse has procured and delivered 50 oxygen concentrators for the Covid relief effort in India, including care for employees of its subsidiary NürnbergMesse India.
The team in Nuremberg shipped the concentrators by air freight at the weekend and company CEO Dr Roland Fleck said: “In this hour of medical crisis and emergency, we stand by our team in India. We are also ensuring home-care and bridging the critical time,” he said. His fellow CEO Peter Ottmann added: “In our company, collaboration knows no national borders. This applies for our efforts to contribute and assist our colleagues in Mumbai, Bangalore and New Delhi just as it does for all our other locations.”
The Indian Consul N. Ramakrishnan, based in Germany, was present when the medical equipment was delivered, and expressed his appreciation: “We are very grateful to NürnbergMesse for this contribution to Coovid relief efforts in India.”
Nuremberg’s mayor Marcus König believes that the tradefair company’s resolute action sends a powerful signal: “NürnbergMesse is modelling solidarity and leading by example as a municipal holding company.”
Another Nuremberg-based company assisted with the procurement of the oxygen concentrators, which are in short supply. Despite globally strong demand, the company Hans Müller HMP Medizintechnik GmbH made the necessary equipment available to NürnbergMesse. The devices are mainly used for home and Covid basic care centres.
NürnbergMesse India managing director Sonia Prashar had initially turned to Dr Roland Fleck and Peter Ottmann for help in procuring the oxygen concentrators.
