Our COVID-19 Measures
(As of calendar week 33)
Since the outbreak of COVID-19, an internal focus team led by the Frequentis Executive Board is closely monitoring the market development, the spread of the virus and what measures are needed for business continuity.
You can find all of our currently implemented measures below.
Since the first information regarding COVID-19, we have implemented and maintained precautionary measures to ensure the health and safety of employees and to minimise the impact on the company’s operations and the operations of our customers.

Resilience in the face of adversity
Combined with the above measures, we believe we are in good shape to withstand the challenges resulting from coronavirus. As well as ensuring business continuity, the most important factors for us are the health of our employees and ensuring that they can care for their children and families.
Frequentis continued to grow profitably in 2020, with a very good operating result despite the pandemic.
- Strong rise in EBIT to EUR 26.8 million; revenues only slightly lower at EUR 299.4 million
- Order intake EUR 314.6 million; orders on hand increased to EUR 427.6 million
- Product portfolio broadened further through strategic investments
As a leading global provider of information and communication solutions for safety-critical applications, Frequentis demonstrated its robustness during the pandemic of 2020. Despite the pandemic-related restrictions, with a few exceptions, it was possible to continue business unchanged.

Our system engineers are still working in the test lab and the integration hall, ensuring to keep the necessary distance.
The travel restrictions in place remain a challenge for certain tasks. Factory acceptance tests due to take place at our premise, and be attended by customers, are being rescheduled or, where possible, carried out virtually.
However, there are some tasks that can only be performed on our customers’ premises and we are taking the appropriate measures to reschedule these where possible or make alternative arrangements.
We are hiring
Despite these challenging times, at Frequentis we know one thing is certain – we will continue to hire the best talents to support us in pursuit of our goals. For this reason we would like to draw attention to our currently open job positions here.
We look forward to welcoming new employees to Frequentis.
