April 29th, 2020 | Rubbiano, Parma, Italy – Lincotek Group recently made a financial donation to the Maggiore Hospital in Parma, Italy – the city where the company has its headquarters. The gift in early March, at the start of the emergency, is just one of a number of concrete actions the business plans to support the local fight against COVID-19.
The donation in Italy is a tribute to the service of doctors, nurses and other frontline healthcare staff battling to control Covid-19 and a way of expressing a “thank you” to teams on the front line.
Although the spread of coronavirus has understandably caused a great deal of concern around the world, Lincotek has been taking every possible step to look after its employees and ensure that customers continue to receive the highest level of quality and service.
Based on the global experience and in reflecting its corporate values, the Group is taking significant steps to fight the spread of the coronavirus in all its plants located in Italy, France, Switzerland, China and North America. The company is maintaining safety in the workplace, limiting physical contact between people and implementing smart working practices in accordance with the recommendations of the WHO and relevant local authorities – sometimes even anticipating them. At the same time, the company is committed to ensuring production and serving its customers in very strategic industries such as the medical and energy supply sectors.
Linda Antolotti, Group Vice President, said:
The Italian health system has experienced dramatic moments in recent weeks, risking collapse due to the pandemic. I think that every single individual and every regional business should play its part to allow hospitals to strengthen their intensive care and intensive care units, now reaching the end of their capacity. We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the medical teams in the Italian healthcare system during the coronavirus crisis. At Lincotek, we wanted to demonstrate our support through a concrete gesture: a donation to the wards treating Covid-19 in the Maggiore Hospital.
