Arconvert and Ritrama respond to the Covid19 emergency
A message from Arconvert and Ritrama,
part of the Fedrigoni Group.
Arconvert and Ritrama are committed to supporting the health sector and the supply of essential necessities throughout the course of this pandemic, and to provide continuity of service at all times.
In an unprecedented global crisis such as the one we are now facing because of Covid19, Fedrigoni Group is committed to ensuring continuity of service and protecting the supply chain of essential necessities. From the beginning of the emergency, Arconvert and Ritrama have been operating fully, without interruptions, to serve the food and pharmaceutical industries and the health sector, while working tirelessly to protect the health and safety of our people.
The Fedrigoni Group has been ensuring the strictest level of compliance with all governmental prescriptions and has introduced some extra measures to further improve the safety of all its employees: widespread use of remote working, video conferencing systems for all meetings, safety distances between colleagues in all workspaces and common areas, infrared temperature testing to all staff at the entrance of factories and offices, restrictions for visitors and external suppliers. Additionally, the sanitisation activities of all environments have been intensified.
Arconvert and Ritrama mainly produce self-adhesive materials for the labelling industry serving large scale distribution to food, pharmaceutical and logistics sectors among others. All essential goods require labels printed on self-adhesive materials. As such the Arconvert-Ritrama products are a vital component in supporting the supply chain of critical items such as drugs and hospital devices, IV and plasma bags, as well as test tubes and products for the sanitation of environments. Labels are also essential for pricing food in supermarkets, for bottles of personal and house care products, or to apply barcodes to handle and ship goods.
During this difficult period of social isolation citizens can still count on the availability of these goods.
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 (including securing the services of alternative drivers should our current suppliers fail to meet our demand).
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 organization and as individuals. We strongly believe that, with everyone's commitment, we will win this momentous battle, together.
