Höganäs says that its main production sites are all up and running, with a good stock of raw materials, following restrictions during the Covid-19 lockdown.

‘We see that the activity level in the automotive segment is increasing, which is encouraging,’ the company said. ‘The OEMs are continuing to ramp up production, although manufacturing numbers for 2020 point towards a significant drop compared to 2019.’

Höganäs has, however, restricted non-essential international business travel and still has a large number of employees working from home globally, the company reported.
