Given the context of social and health alarm and following the indications provided by the government decree and the measures adopted by the local health authorities, to protect both employees and collaborators, the Körber Tissue companies have decided to temporarily suspend production activities at the Fabio Perini plants in Lucca and Calderara di Reno (BO), MTC in Porcari (LU) and Engraving Solutions in Lucca, from tomorrow, March 17th, until March 23rd.
"We took this decision - comments Oswaldo Cruz Junior, CEO Körber Tissue, with a great sense of responsibility and in agreement with all the social partners involved, to protect the health and peace of mind of our employees and their families, as well as our customers, partners and suppliers.
However, we aim to avoid operational discontinuity and provide the best possible service, backed up by an important infrastructure for remote connectivity, our global presence and the know-how of all our teams worldwide. We evaluate the situation on a daily basis and with great attention, ready to start again with even greater commitment".
Business continuity will be partly guaranteed by employees who will be able to work in smart working mode, by the strengthening of the remote technical support team and by the Tissue Performance Center which collects and analyzes customers' production data to provide information on the status of the machines and suggest improvements to maximize production efficiency.
During this closing week, all processes already undertaken in recent weeks will be implemented to ensure the best possible prevention such as strict sanitation and hygiene measures at all sites, as well as improvements to protect employee safety.
