Mate Rimac Closing Company on Monday, Employee Health Top Priority

Lauren Simmonds

The current coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic has well and truly dragged the world into a state of total disarray and with the health systems of many countries struggling, and the economy taking a proverbial nose dive, Croatian entrepreneur Mate Rimac has decided to close his company as of Monday.

As Novac writes on the 15th of March, 2020 apart from those who are able to do their jobs from the comfort and safety of their own homes, no Rimac Automobili employee will come to work.

Mate Rimac is one of Croatia’s most incredible entrepreneurial stories and is an idol for many in a country which still doesn’t take that kindly to startups, would-be entrepreneurs and investors, both foreign and domestic. This innovative entrepreneur from Livno, Bosnia and Herzegovina, is very well known for his humanitarian approach to very many things, and his latest Facebook status just goes to show that he is constantly thinking of others.

”Based on the available data, we believe that the most responsible decision for the health of our employees and their families was to close the company from Monday. Those that can work from home will do so but of course things will slow down. The health of our employees is the first priority. So all 700+ Greyp and Rimac employees in all our locations will not come to our facilities next week.

We are monitoring the situation closely and will make further decisions based on the situation next week.

Btw. We don’t have any case yet so this is a pure precaution.”

In response, commenters praised Rimac, stating that this was the ”only proper solution” and that the beloved Rimac Automobili founder is ”always a step ahead”.
