In front of the health emergency caused by Covid-19, Spanish Food processing and packaging machinery manufacturers maintain their activity to ensure the supply chain of activities considered essential by the Government. Aware of their important role in maintaining the supply chain of activities in essential sectors such as food, pharmacy, home and hygiene, they have adapted to provide all the services required with all the guarantees of security.
The Presidents, Jordi Vila, from amec alimentec, and Michele Palma, from amec envasgraf, points out that “we continue to provide service to our customers, who need all our support to continue supplying product to the population at a time as complex as the one we are experiencing.”
Most of the associated companies have organized so that telephone and online technical support, as well as the urgent shipment of spare parts, is guaranteed, at the same time that all sanitary protocols and recommendations apply. In this sense, they are operating in telework mode in all the functions that allow it, while the presence of production personnel has been reduced, organizing it in shifts, thus ensuring the mandatory safety distance between workers while production is maintained. This effort of adaptation and coordination responds to the vocation of the Spanish manufacturers of packaging machinery to always be at the service of the needs of the industry and the society. We will therefore continue to meet the requirements of the customers around the world as we have always been doing.
