They are highlighting that they are dealing with an acute lack of staff, especially direct production workers, operators for numerically controlled machine tools.
The cause of this situation is correlated with the fact that in the months of April - May 2020 the company's activity was halted, and the majority of the company's employees had their contracts suspended, during which they benefited from furlough worth 75%.
In this context, a large part of the staff has left the company, choosing to work in other countries. The number of employees has reduced by over 400.

For diminishing the effect of this situation, employees were requested to work overtime during the week, even on Saturday and Sunday.
