Sonepar supported a number of emergency hospital construction and expansion projects in China.
At the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, Sonepar supported a number of new hospital construction and expansion projects, and treatment related projects for both the Huoshenshan and Leishenshan Hospitals in Wuhan.
Throughout the sanitary crisis, Sonepar’s Building and Electrical Distribution (B&ED) Division in China has continued to support similar urgent projects for four other hospitals in Wuhan, Shanghai and Sanya. The B&ED Division has also provided emergency supplies for two manufacturers who produce PPEs, and for one who provides high-end medical equipment using Schneider Electric LV, Schneider Wingoal, ABB, Siemens, and Phoenix Contact products.
Thank you to these teams for their efforts throughout this challenging time.
