Fedrigoni pledges Covid-19 support

Paper manufacturer Fedrigoni Group has set out how it will continue to support companies in the health and food sectors during the ongoing novel coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis.

Fedrigoni’s Arconvert and Ritrama businesses have been operating fully without major interruptions since the start of the outbreak, serving both the food and pharmaceutical industries and the health sector.

Arconvert and Ritrama mainly produce self-adhesive materials for the labelling industry, serving large-scale distribution to food, pharmaceutical and logistics sectors among others.

As all essential goods require labels printed on self-adhesive materials, Fedrigoni says the Arconvert-Ritrama products are a “vital component” in supporting the supply chain of critical items such as drugs and hospital devices.

“We are grateful for the privilege of being able do our part in this difficult moment, and we take this responsibility very seriously, both as an organisation and as individuals,” Fedrigoni says in a statement.

Among the other measures Arconvert and Ritrama are taking to help slow the spread of coronavirus, including the widespread use of remote working, video conferencing systems for meetings, social distancing between staff, infrared temperature-testing to employees as well as restrictions on visitors and external suppliers.

“Arconvert and Ritrama are constantly assessing the situation as it evolves and are adjusting operations to secure the entire value chain, from the stock management and flexibility of their plants, to supply chain management,” Fedrigoni adds.

“We strongly believe that, with everyone's commitment, we will win this momentous battle, together.”
