Responding to the pandemic

The COVID-19 crisis has without a doubt put us all in an exceptional situation. Though these are truly unprecedented circumstances, we have been doing everything in our power to primarily safeguard our esteemed employees and customers while simultaneously defend business continuity.

The COVID-19 crisis has without a doubt put us all in an exceptional situation. Though these are truly unprecedented circumstances, we have been doing everything in our power to primarily safeguard our esteemed employees and customers while simultaneously defend business continuity. The safety and health of our employees, customers and partners is our highest priority and have been therefore unwaveringly committed to taking the required precautionary measures to ensure absolute protection. As soon as the virus reached Egypt, we quickly took the decision to close down for 2-3 weeks to sterilize and disinfect our facilities as well as protect our employees. By enabling them to work from home and conduct virtual meeting either for internal purposes or with customers, we were able to protect business continuity.  Thereafter, we have continued to follow prudent precautionary measures by rotating a portion of our employees, encouraging them to practice social distancing and laying out guidelines for hygiene practices. Furthermore, IDP is focused on conducting enhanced and more frequent cleaning services at our workshop and office buildings and has installed disinfectant dispensers to promote hand washing. In these more-than-challenging times, we at IDP hope that our team, customers and partners stay safe, yet are confident that we will be able to work though this together. We are making every effort to mitigate shortages and delays and are working thoroughly to continue servicing your needs.
