As established by the Decree of the Prime Minister of March 22nd 2020, there will be a production standstill from March 26th to April 3rd.
We immediately followed the ministerial provisions scrupulously, taking all necessary precautions to protect the health of our employees and their families. We have encouraged smart working whenever possible, set up shifts for access to canteens and changing rooms so that the safety distances were respected, equipped all the staff of Personal Protective Equipment and we have implemented the sanitization of our production plants and office.
At this time, however, the containment of the Covid-19 epidemic requires further tightening and new choices of responsibility. The temporary block of production is a sacrifice that we hope will help overcome the emergency more as quickly as possible.
Waiting to return fully operational, administrative and commercial functions will continue in the smart working mode to support our customers from whom we will certainly have the maximum understanding. Even the plant maintenance activities will not stop, to ensure a prompt and an efficient re-start.
In order to express our closeness to the territory, strongly affected by the epidemic, we wanted to participate with a donation to two important initiatives: ““Aiutiamo Vicenza”, della Fondazione San Bortolo Onlus” in favor of Vicenza hospitals, and “Insieme si può – Emilia Romagna contro il Coronavirus”, of the Regional Agency for Territorial Security and Civil Protection Service of Emilia-Romagna.
The emergency we are experiencing is a difficult challenge, but we can overcome it with everyone’s collaboration and with deep support for those on the front line.
