Gauselmann Group has announced it has shut all production and sales activity throughout Europe, due to the coronavirus outbreak.
The German supplier has closed all 700 of its gaming establishments in the country and across Europe, which will impact its Lübbecke base.
Earlier this month, Gauselmann had confirmed that base would become its global sales headquarters.
The announcement comes following measures introduced by the German Government to close all non-essential shops to curb the effects of the coronavirus, which has caused nearly 20,000 deaths worldwide.
Despite this, Gauselmann’s worldwide departments will remain open to continue product development on a part-time basis.
The supplier also said it will use its financial reserves to support the business during the outbreak, with it yet being known how long restrictions will remain in place.
Gauselmann Group CEO and Founder Paul Gauselmann said: “As a family business, we are happy our employees stand by us not only in the past but also in the future.
“I am sure once this crisis is overcome, there will be an even better future for all of us.”
