With a special permit, the Zollner plant in Silicon Valley continues production despite the lockdown. Two customers of Zollner Elektronik AG were classified as "Essential Businesses" by the authorities of Santa Clara County. They are medical technology companies; some of the products are for potential Corona Virus test systems.
The Zollner employees returning to their workplaces in Milpitas have to comply with appropriate regulations, such as keeping a six feet distance between each other at all times. This is one of the conditions that the district has imposed for the resumption of production. Further customers are making efforts to ensure that Zollner is allowed to resume production for their requirements.
