Covid-19: we continue to do our duty, even in the context of the new restrictive measures

23/03/2020 – Message from the president

 

As the Coronavirus continues to spread, our thoughts go out to anyone who has been affected by this emergency and, in particular, to all the healthcare workers who put themselves on the front lines, saving lives and caring for the sick. We hope that you, your family and loved ones are safe and well, and are taking the necessary precautions to protect yourselves and each other from the contagion.

In order to face the epidemic emergency, in the late evening of Saturday 21 March, the Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte announced new restrictive measures, that took effect with Sunday’s 22 March 2020 Prime Ministerial Decree. According to these new procedures, Marangoni’s activities in Italy are among the strategical ones tied to primary needs. Therefore we confirm that we’ll continue the production and provision of services according to our schedule, respecting the measures provided by the responsible authorities and complying with the self-regulatory framework.

During this emergency, essential activities such as – for instance – the transport of food and medicines, the collection of waste or the local public transport, have become even more fundamental.

As a leader in the retreading business, we have a great responsibility: to do our part to provide the transportation sector with the needed spare truck tyres. Furthermore, through our subsidiary Fedi Gomme, an Italian pioneer in full-service tyre management for goods and people transportation fleets, we’re proud to serve directly many carriers throughout Italy.

Stay safe, take care of each other and, as always, thank you for your business.

 

The President
Vittorio Marangoni


12/03/2020 – UPDATE

Our company’s activities in Italy are fundamental to support essential services such as goods and people transportation. For this reason, despite the complexity of a situation that is changing all the time, we’re not stopping and we’re acting with commitment and determination to continue to produce, as permitted by yesterday’s Italian Prime Ministerial Decree.

We’ll do our best to continue to satisfy our customers’ needs while respecting the measures provided by the responsible Authorities and complying with the framework of the more stringent measures issued by the Italian Government.

In order to protect as much as possible the workers’ health, we have arranged the “smart/agile working” for all the staff that can operate remotely.

Let us remind you once again that your ordinary contacts remain available through the usual communication channels.

Thank you for your attention.


10/03/2020 –  communication

With reference to the COVID-19 situation and the associated events taking place in Italy, we wish to inform you that the productive and logistic activities are running smoothly in all our plants.

We are therefore able to receive and process the orders while adopting all the necessary procedures to protect the workers’ health. In particular, our company is taking all the actions to be consistent with the measures provided by the responsible Authorities.

The Italian government explained that transporting goods falls under the “proven working activities” not subject to limitations of movement. Therefore, the drivers are continuing to deliver and/or withdraw the goods.

The production personnel and the employees can get to work without any limitation for these reasons as well.

On our premises, all the visitors and drivers are asked, first of all, to address themselves to the reception, and then, to comply with the behavioural norms that will be communicated.

We thank everyone for the collaboration and we point out that your ordinary contacts remain available through the usual communication channels.
