Temporary closure of all production activities in order to combat the spread of COVID-19

Corporate

The recent and extremely fast developments with regards to the evolution of covid-19 virus has resulted in the Canton of Ticino to decree on the 20th of March that all production activities within the Canton will cease temporarily. This was in parallel with the same extraordinary measures adopted by the Prime Minister of Italy, Giuseppe Conte for production activities on the Italian territory.

ARGOR-HERAEUS will therefore immediately abide by these measures and cease all activities starting from Monday, 23rd of March until Sunday, April 5th.

All activities related to the temporary stop of operations will therefore be carried out, for the entire period in question. These will include controlling functions and checks in order to guarantee the safety of the environment and facilities. Communication to and from our facilities and offices will remain active, but at a reduced level.
