In Xi'an, capital city of Northwest China's Shaanxi province, a slew of foreign-funded companies recently put their foot on the gas pedal to return to full production, while at the same time ensuring the prevention and control of the novel coronavirus pneumonia epidemic, local officials said.

Yin Yong, general manager of Schneider Electric Equipment Engineering (Xi'an) Co, said that on March 3 his company was back to full production.

The Xi'an plant is one of Schneider Electric's 207 factories in the global supply chain. It is Schneider Electric's largest low-voltage power distribution equipment production plant in China.

In response to the tight supply, the company ensure sufficient reserves of anti-epidemic materials in advance so they could provide them to workers when they resumed work.

Xi’an Magontec Co received approval to resume production on Feb 15 and the first batch of staff began to work on Feb 16, according to Lu Yu, assistant to the president of the Asia region of Xi'an Magontec Co.

"About 60 percent of our products are mainly exported to the Asia-Pacific region, North America and Europe," Lu said.

"Production, procurement and transportation in February was greatly affected by the epidemic. However, as the second and third batches of workers returned to work, the company’s production is starting to get back to full operations."

In addition to getting back to work, foreign-funded enterprises in Xi’an also actively join the fight against the epidemic.

In response to the outbreak, Xi'an Maike Group, an integrated commodities and financial services provider, donated 1 million yuan ($144,266.84) to the Red Cross Society of China Shaanxi Branch to fight the epidemic in Wuhan.
