At present, we are all dealing with the COVID-19 health emergency, perhaps the most serious in recent European and, indeed, world history.
Governments worldwide are having to make difficult decisions in order to limit the spread of contagion and protect everyone's health, especially the most vulnerable.
SACMI is also committed to mitigating the risk, and the results achieved so far stem from our personnel’s extraordinary commitment. By strengthening our 'smart working' potential we've managed to maintain order processing, shipping, logistics and assistance operations at the highest level.
This means we can, today, guarantee support and assistance across all our businesses. Packaging production operations continue apace while all of SACMI's other manufacturing sectors are already preparing for a post-emergency re-launch.
Assistance and spare parts are still guaranteed worldwide: technical and sales personnel are working hard in close collaboration with our Global Network.
In those parts of the world with severe restrictions on production and travel, SACMI personnel remain at the customer's disposal to provide spare parts and order assistance.
Where, instead, we are unable to reach customers physically, SACMI is still providing every possible support via strengthened tele-assistance services.
In the midst of today's challenges, we must never forget we're working for the generations that will follow, for the future of our communities and countries.
Lastly, I must thank all my colleagues who, even in the midst of this emergency, are showing great tenacity and passion as they ensure continuity of production and business.
So let us move forwards.
