Since the pandemic outbreak Endress+Hauser India and especially Aurangabad where the company has the manufacturing unit have been educating and training employees to fight carona.

Additional protection has been provided to the customers and employers, such as; clear plastic sneeze barriers, ventilation, and the proper selection, use and disposal of personal protective equipment.
