As the glass industry slows down due to a dramatic fall of consumption amid the Covid-19 pandemic, Coverpla has put in place a crisis process allowing it to continue its activity for the coming weeks.
“While this situation impacts the entire beauty industry, it is up to each company to respond to the situation. Coverpla has thus taken the decision to continue the activity of its workshops in Nice in order to honour the majority of its orders,” explained the French supplier of high end glass packaging in a statement. Covepla, which specialises in small and medium series, added the decision was taken respecting its “employee’s will to keep production safe.”
Therefore, a new internal organisation was set up in agreement with all the company’s employees in order to protect their health and safety. “In line with the Covid-19’s control and distance guidelines, the working teams have been redefined, workshop schedules modified, and spaces organized to respect the distances between each individual. Commercial and administrative teams remain operational remotely and eventually in reduced activity.”
Thanks to its collection of bottles, pumps and caps immediately available, Coverpla is therefore able to maintain its overall offer on small and medium series custom made at the local level. Its multiple partnerships with European glassmakers also allows the company to maintain the production of certain lines of bottles.
"Through this management of the health crisis, we hope to continue our activity with our customers, but not at any price. Without accepting any compromise on the safety of our employees and their families, these provisions could evolve over time," explains Bruno Diepois, president of Coverpla.
