We focus on flexibility - and continue to be there for you.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) dominates our everyday life - privately and professionally. At the OFI it also influences the processes and, above all, the physical presence of our experts. But it does not prevent us from supporting you further with our know-how.

We are still there for you. In a critical situation such as this, our flexibility is a great advantage: OFI employees are used to acting flexibly and finding creative solutions. Wherever possible, they do so from home, but a core team will continue to be on site at OFI for you: taking samples, testing them in the technical centre or analysing them in the laboratory.

The health of our employees, partners and customers has top priority. For this reason, the following measures have been taken to ensure the safety of all and, as a system-relevant supplier, to maintain our services as usual:

  1. Travel activities of our staff, visits of clients and all OFI events were cancelled or rescheduled until further notice.
  2. Hygiene measures at the OFI have been strengthened and cleaning intervals increased.
  3. The working arrangements of our staff have been made more flexible. The majority of our experts working at home, only a small number are on site to avoid personal contact.
  4. Our IT infrastructure has been further expanded so that you can still reach your contact person as usual under his or her contact details. The recent switch to digitally signed test and inspection reports also allows us to send your results quickly and without contact.


If you have any questions about current orders or inquiries, please contact your contact person as usual - by phone or email. If you do not yet have a contact person, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with your request.

The entire OFI team wishes you, your families, friends and colleagues all the best, especially health.
