At the meeting, Mr Nguyen Van Loi encouraged leaders, officers and employees at the Company. He recommended that the Board of Directors of the company maintain production of compressed air, especially oxygen gas, to ensure the supply to the province and neighboring localities in case of the complicated situation of the pandemic.
He also suggested that the company's Board of Directors pay special medical attention to officials and workers.
Mr Nguyen Van Phuong, Production Supervisor of Messer in Binh Duong said the firm had recognized oxygen production to be an "especially important field whose supply chains need to be protected," even before the coronavirus situation became as complex as it is today. In anticipation, the company began to stockpile oxygen while improving its production system and deploying Covid-19 control measures to keep operations running, Phuong added.
