along with the orderly resumption of production following the recent new coronavirus outbreak, ofilm has welcomed a group of new employees from hui, uighur, miao and tujia ethnic groups. many of them are coming to nanchang for the first time. on arrival, newcomers are often unfamiliar with their future work and living conditions at the nanchang factory. one of them is ms. fumei xing, an ethnic hui chinese citizen who is a new member of the manufacturing department of ofilm’s imaging business group, among the pillars of ofilm’s global success.ms. fumei xing was introduced to ofilm by her friend ms. fangfang zhang. ms. zhang has been an ofilm employee for five years. she is helping guide and acclimate ms. xing to her new working environment.
this year, ofilm, in common with other global manufacturing companies in china, has faced an unprecedented challenge – and solemn responsibility -- of assuring the health and safety of its workers during the coronavirus outbreak. ofilm went to significant lengths to protect its workers from infection, and provide for them a safe, healthy working and living environment. for ofilm, a special duty was to arrange safe, reliable and comfortable transportation for its employees returning to work in nanchang from across china. ofilm chartered air planes, trains and long-distance busses for this purpose, coordinating with its employees to determine the safest and most appropriate means of transport for them. as a result, thousands of ofilm workers, including those from ethnic minorities or living in more remote areas, were able to return to nanchang to resume paid employment.
