BERLIN (Reuters) - Siemens Healthineers (SHLG.DE) is making plans for how to protect itself against a potential “logistics crisis” in the case of a hard Brexit, its chief executive said on Monday.
“We are thinking about how we can solve or protect ourselves against a potential logistic crisis in the worst case of a hard Brexit,” Bernd Montag told journalists following the company’s fourth-quarter results.
Healthineers has R&D and manufacturing sites in Britain and the market makes up roughly 3-4 percent of the company’s sales. Montag said there was no question mark over the future of its British sites.
