Danfoss India, which serves the F&B industry, recognising its responsibility towards the community and the nation, has taken proactive steps towards supporting the Central and state governments through its Covid relief initiatives.

To counter the challenges presented by the shortage of oxygen cylinders across the country, the company is working on an industry taskforce along with the TN government to procure oxygen cylinders. Upon procurement, these cylinders will be distributed by the government across hospitals in Tamil Nadu to aid the state’s healthcare infrastructure.

Danfoss India president Ravichandran Purushothaman recently handed over a cheque of Rs 25 lakh to Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M K Stalin as their contribution to the Tamil Nadu State Disaster Management Authority in aid of the Government’s fight against Covid-19.

Currently, the company is also working with the Government to set up a 250LPM oxygen plant which will support 50+ oxygen beds at Government District Hospital near campus. The plant is expected to be delivered in 6 weeks and commissioned thereafter in 2 to 3 weeks.

Since the first phase of the lockdown, the company’s campus has been functioning in line with Covid safety protocols to address the technology requirements of essential services industries such as food, medical and pharma. Their production staff has been provided safe accommodation closer to the campus and they function on campus following all the safety guidelines prescribed by the government.

The employees have also been supported by the 24*7 in-house occupational health centre (functional since 2014) to aid employees and family; a dedicated Covid Helpline where expert doctors address all employee queries; frequent Health Talks; comprehensive insurance coverage as well as reimbursement of Covid vaccine expenses for employees and their dependents, amongst many others.

Danfoss Global has also been supporting India’s Covid fight by working with organisations such as Indo Danish Chamber of Commerce and Embassy of Denmark and till date multiple consignments of oxygen concentrators, ventilators, masks, and other materials have been sent from Denmark, facilitated by IDCC. The company has till now contributed 100K DKK towards the procurement and delivery of these essential materials to support India’s healthcare infrastructure.
