Danfoss India, which serves the food and beverage industry, identifying its responsibility towards the community and the country, has taken proactive steps towards backing the Central and state governments through its Covid relief initiatives.

To tackle the obstacles presented by the scarcity of oxygen cylinders across the nation, the company is working on an industry taskforce along with the TN government to source oxygen cylinders. Upon procurement, these cylinders will be distributed by the government across hospitals in Tamil Nadu to assist the state’s healthcare infrastructure.

Danfoss India president Ravichandran Purushothaman recently donated 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 support of the Government’s fight against Covid-19 pandemic.

At present, the company is also taking steps with the Government to set up a 250LPM oxygen plant which will aid 50+ oxygen beds at Government District Hospital near campus. The plant is anticipated to be delivered in 6 weeks and commissioned thereafter in 2-3 weeks.

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

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

Danfoss Global has also been backing India’s Covid fight by working with organizations like Indo Danish Chamber of Commerce and Embassy of Denmark and till date a number of consignments of oxygen concentrators, ventilators, masks, and other materials have been sent from Denmark, facilitated by IDCC. Till now, the company has contributed 100K DKK towards the procurement and delivery of these necessarily vital materials to assist India’s healthcare infrastructure.
