Dear Baltic Family,
The global Coronavirus pandemic is unprecedented, affecting businesses and individuals in extremely challenging ways.
While focusing on arranging safe working conditions for all our employees and restricting internal face to face meetings by moving them to digital platforms, it is important to understand that:
- We are currently able to continue operations in the yard.
- Our service team remains available to remotely support our vessels should assistance be required.
Despite taking these actions it remains difficult to predict what will happen next and when. But we can still honour our value promise to customers to build “Lighter, Stiffer, Faster, Greener– Together”. Right now, the focus is even more on: “Together”. And we will overcome the pandemic. Together.
In these unsettling times, we want to buck the trend and share with you some positive messages to bolster our spirits.
First, we are grateful for our extended Baltic Family spirit. Our customers, staff, subcontractors and crews are our most important asset – and you are really proving your worth. This crisis and the immediate threats posed by it have, in fact, brought us even closer Together!
Second, good will come out of this crisis. We hope that the world has embraced a common value set, signaling that the most important thing is to take care of each other and save lives.
Lastly, our thoughts are very much with those working in healthcare.
We remain positive about the future and believe that together we will emerge stronger. Should you have anything you wish to discuss, please feel free to contact us anytime in the normal way.
Stay safe and healthy,
Baltic Yachts Oy Ab Ltd / Executive Board
