Closure Note - General Manager

March 13, 2020 - Rivanazzano Terme - Italy


There are moments in life when the sense of responsibility must prevail over everything. Today we are called to take a painful decision, but with the awareness that it is the best solution.

  • Best solution for safeguarding the health of our employees and their families
  • Best solution because, despite the fact that our company has taken all possible preventive measures and has by far exceeded the measures imposed by the institutions, a further effort is needed
  • Best solution because we have always said it and today we demonstrate it with the facts, that in Valvitalia, employees, customers and all stake holders come first

We therefore decided to close our Italian factories until Sunday 22nd March.

The impact on the deliveries of our products will be limited and we are confident that our customers will understand, appreciate this decision and will remain close to us.

The operation of the offices will be in any case guaranteed through smart working.

At this moment, appealing to their sense of responsibility, everyone must make his small but great contribution to contain the spread of this cursed virus.

This is how we take ours!

We are sure that this is the best way to return, all together, stronger than ever.
