Statement from Groupe SEB about the situation in China

Groupe SEB and its subsidiary SUPOR are fully mobilized to implement appropriate measures

Groupe SEB has 7 factories in China, out of which only one is located in Wuhan – Hubei Province. Like every year, due to Chinese New Year, all Groupe SEB premises are currently closed, and all our employees are on vacation.

Taking into account the exceptional circumstances and as per Chinese Authorities request, our factories will extend vacation closure by an extra week, from February 3rd to February 10th. Our Wuhan factory will remain closed until new notice from Authorities.

For offices, reopening is forecasted on February 3rd with remote home working for most employees until February 10th.

In addition, Groupe SEB issued a travel ban since last week to China and from China and has currently no expatriates nor employees travelling to China. SUPOR, in China, has established an employee caring and health status reporting system.

So far, none of our employees has been reported sick.

In parallel, Groupe SEB is fully mobilized to also implement appropriate measures to take care of its employees wherever they are, in total cooperation with Authorities.
