Hottinger Brüel & Kjær pauses its business activities in Russia, Belarus, and Ukraine


As a global company, we are deeply concerned about the current situation in Ukraine. HBK has therefore taken the decision to pause all trading with Russia, Belarus, and Ukraine. We also want to acknowledge the impact this situation has on all of us within HBK, and especially to those in our teams who have families and loved ones caught up in the conflict. Health and Safety is at the heart of our business, and we will stand together in our support for the people of Ukraine at this time.
