Geretsried – At the most recent regulars' table of the CSU local association, the district chairman of the Mittelstandsunion, Gerhard Knill, reported on the effects of the Ukraine war on domestic companies.
The managing director of the Geretsried concrete plant, Gerhard Knill, initially referred to the disruption in the supply chains that have been evident since the outbreak of the corona pandemic and the start of the Ukraine war.
"Almost all industries are more or less affected," explained Knill.
Delivery times of four months because of the Ukraine war
Containers could not be loaded because further transport is not possible.
"The missing goods are then missing on the shelves and in the production process," regretted the SME union district chairman.
His company had to wait four months for the delivery of a printer and even around eight months for the electronic chip of a defibrillator.
Craftsmen lack materials and spare parts for repairs.
The Ukraine war has exacerbated the developments in the Corona crisis.
"The danger of a wildfire has not been averted," Knill believes.
Rising energy costs affect producers and consumers
For example, the long-fought steelworks in Mariupol was one of the largest in Europe, and the oil embargo against Russia also had global consequences.
The significant increase in gas and electricity prices affects producers and consumers alike.
According to Knill, in order to continue to assert themselves on the world market, Europe and Germany would have to reposition themselves militarily and economically.
Even if the war in Ukraine can be ended politically and diplomatically, it will "unfortunately continue to have an impact for decades".
CSU local chairman concerned: “Budget planning is becoming sporty”
After this gloomy forecast for the future, CSU local chairman Martin Huber expressed concern that the creation of affordable housing and municipal construction projects for the city will become ever greater challenges.
"Our budget planning for the next six years will be sporty," announced Huber.
