A quick response to the difficulties associated with COVID-19, as well as high automation of production, allowed us to maintain liquidity of operations in all areas during the period of difficulties associated with the pandemic. We are optimistic about the outlook for this and subsequent years – said Daniel Janusz, CEO of FEERUM S.A.
