Vital Group production and research manager Bilal Ünalmış said that the primary goal of the production company is to protect the health and safety of its production employees during a pandemic. Mr. Ünalmış said: “We handed out masks to our employees and changed their working conditions in order to maintain social distance. At various points in the production facilities, we have installed disinfection stations, and general disinfection of the premises occurs twice a week. Employees who have the ability to work remotely continue to work from home. At a time when the consequences of the epidemic were most intense, we completely stopped working. In the period of normalization, we partially continue our work in accordance with the rules. "

“The Covid-19 pandemic has had and continues to affect the economies and markets of all countries. Those who can minimize this impact will be able to cope with the problems and use all the opportunities, ”said Mr. Ünalmış. He also said that experts are constantly involved in the hygiene safety of elevators and escalators, as they are public facilities with an increased risk of use.

Mr. Ünalmış continued: “As long as tall buildings exist, there will be a need for elevators. Despite fluctuations arising for various reasons, the elevator industry must maintain its existence to meet the needs of the market. Even if the epidemic is under control and its development slows down, its "The consequences will be felt for a long time in our life. Even after its complete completion, the changes it has brought into our lives will remain with us. Companies offering solutions to their end users in this direction, regardless of their sphere of activity, will always occupy leading positions."

- Ultraviolet disinfection system for the elevator car

During the epidemic, we carried out research work to find out what solutions we can provide in our field of activity. As a result, we developed an ultraviolet disinfection system for the elevator car to ensure elevator hygiene. As you know, ultraviolet rays like UV-C can kill viruses and bacteria in a short time. They have been used for many years in operating rooms and similar facilities. However, these rays are harmful to the human body. Their prolonged exposure can damage the skin and eyes of a person. Thanks to our developments, the disinfection system is activated when the elevator is on standby and there is no one in it. Then we found that similar developments were also carried out by other companies. These and similar studies will be a new era in the development of technology, as well as a weapon in our fight against the virus.

- During this period, we adapted sales goals to more realistic indicators

As a manufacturing company, at the end of each year we set new goals for the next year. To date, we have achieved almost all the goals set for previous years. But this year, in connection with the pandemic, we had unforeseen circumstances. During this period, we adapted sales goals to more realistic indicators. Of course, the demand for our products has fallen. After the first case announced on March 10, 2020, demand for March fell by 38% compared with the same month of the previous year. In April and May, demand fell by 27%, and in the first half of June - by 14%. We hope to achieve the goals set at the beginning of the year by the next month.

The mission of Vital Group is to maximize the use of new technologies. The company has made major investments in this area. We have invested heavily in new hardware and software to ease the workload. In the coming years, we plan to reap the benefits of such investments. Our dream is to make Turkish elevator construction a competitive industry in the global market. This is possible with high quality and affordable products. "
