16/03/2020 - COVID-19_HOLDING ACTIVITIES 16-20 MARCH

The Lafert Group Management, given the new directives of the Italian Government concerning the workplaces safety, and the constant increase of infections, which are expected to reach a peak in the coming days, as well as the heavy prohibitions on circulation and work activities implemented during the last week, decided:

 

- to comply with the new rules issued by the Government regarding the safety of the workplace and to allow the sanitization of the plants;

- to help the containment of the number of contacts between people, and therefore the slowdown of the peak expected in the coming days, with the sense of social responsibility that has always distinguished the Lafert Group's actions over the years towards communities to which it belongs;

 

to hold all activities in the Italian facilities of Lafert S.p.A. in San Dona di Piave, Lafert Servo Motors S.p.A. in Noventa di Piave, Icme S.p.A. in Fusignano and Lafert Servo Drive S.r.l. in Bologna from March 16th to 20th, 2020.

 

Sure of the understanding and collaboration of all our Italian and Foreign Partners in the fight against what has become a worldwide epidemiological emergency, we apologize in advance for any inconvenience we could cause but we trust in a unanimous understanding.
