Bucher Industries’ monitoring systems reported activities indicating the preparation of an attack by external attackers. The company shut down the IT infrastructure of the division Bucher Municipal in a secured manner immediately after detecting the activities and stopped production as a precaution. This affects the Bucher Municipal sites worldwide as well as the Bucher Specials sites in Switzerland.

With the help of external experts, the IT infrastructure is currently undergoing an in-depth investigation so that it can be restarted as soon as possible. At present, Bucher Industries does not expect a material impact on the 2021 business results.
