The ACOME Group has five plants in China employing nearly 300 people: three industrial sites dedicated to the production of automotive cables in Wuhan (Hubei province) and Zhuhai (Guangdong province), a telecom cable production site in Xintai (province Shandong) and offices in Shanghai.

Like every year, on the occasion of the Chinese New Year holidays, the ACOME Group's sites were closed.

To date and in accordance with the request of the Chinese authorities:

  • the two industrial plants based in Wuhan extend their closure until February, 14,
  • the Xintai, Zhuhai and Shanghai sites are closed until February 9.

A specific and permanent system for monitoring and responding to the concerns of our employees and customers has been put in place.

To date, none of our employees has been declared sick. Our sites have taken the appropriate measures, are monitoring the state of health of their teams and all staff travels to China have been suspended.

The Chinese sales and administrative teams can be reached and the Group's business continuity plan has been activated to guarantee deliveries to our customers.

All of the ACOME Group's industrial sites are mobilized to provide the necessary support to the Chinese subsidiaries.
