In the midst of COVID-19 pandemic that has brought lockdown and labor shortage in most parts of the world, FAMSUN has no issues in project construction in Southeast Asia.
The company said it has successfully proceeded over 10 construction projects for local and international customers who have make investments in this region since the beginning of February, including feed mills and grain storage silos for New Hope Group in Indonesia, CPF in Myanmar, Hoang Long in Vietnam, M'S PIG in Cambodia, and the projects in the Philippines for Easybio, CEPI and some other leading producers.
"Ensuring food safety, food security and nutrition is more important than ever in these challenging time, especially for the populations in the developing Southeast Asia countries." Elvis Yin, Vice President and Head of FAMSUN Asia-Pacific said. "Our customers and their normal operations weight a lot in providing safe and sustainable foods and livelihoods security during the epidemic and in the recovery of local economies."
"As a reliable and trusted partner of local industries, we are now more focused than ever on ensuring that our customers can get the service they need at these troubled times," Elvis said. "And we are taking every effort to ensure their construction plans continue at where local regulations allow."
Localization, FPD and strict biosecurity measures enable project construction continue
In order to best serve the interests of its customers and provide the most accurate and localized experience for users, FAMSUN started "Localization" in 2005 by setting sales and service offices and incorporating local experts into its teams at the countries it operates. The outbreak is a test to the capability of FAMSUN's localization. The company has made a quick response to the lockdown and travel restriction that starting from early February in China and many other countries in the following months.
In Southeast Asia, in order to mitigate the impacts of COVID-19 and the lack of engineering support from the headquarters due to travel restriction, FAMSUN entered into cooperation agreements with some successful local engineering and service teams in each country it operates.
The successful project delivery during pandemic is also attributed to FAMSUN's unique, well-proved and standardized Flawless Project Delivery (FPD) system and the strictly implementing of hygiene standards and contagion prevention rules on construction sites. With the execution and management guidelines of FPD system, local partners are capable to install and construct project on schedule and per standard, Elvis told.
"As an important link of local agri-food supply chain, FAMSUN Asia-Pacific commits to fighting against COVID-19 and going through this hard time together with customers, partners and communities," Elvis said. "And we will try our best to mobilize all available resources to provide assistance and help the industry recover from the pandemic."
