As of today, May 4th, Bugatti has officially restarted the production of hypercars like the Chiron and Divo at their Molsheim workshop. Workers are, however, under strict guidelines to ensure their safety.
“We will do everything necessary to ensure that our employees are able to work safely. Wherever possible, they can still work from home to ensure that the minimum possible number of employees are on site at any one time,” says Stephan Winkelmann, President of Bugatti.
Each employee is given a facemask when they arrive, which must be worn at all times. Employees must also stay 1.5-meters apart– 1.5-meters is just Europe’s version of the 6-foot rule here in US. Bugatti also notes that they are working on processing incoming and outgoing goods in a contactless manner. They have also reduced the amount of deliveries and maintenance.
“I am confident that we have implemented the right measures to allow us to resume production in stages, while also providing the maximum possible protection for our employees,” says Winkelmann.
