Health measures in the Italian factories were enforced over the Coronavirus crisis
MV Agusta continues to keep its production line open. The Varese brand in agreement with workers’ representatives and compliance with the health measures set by the Prime Minister’s 11/03 decree decided to keep its Schiranna factory, in Northern Italy, open.
The brand announced an official press release.
“We believe it is our duty not to give up in this crisis situation so that the economy of this community can recover once the emergency is over. We took this decision with a great sense of responsibility, towards our employees in the first place, but also towards our local community, which cannot afford a breakdown of its production capability, and towards all the related industries on which so many workers and their families depend.
The company has implemented all the information, prevention and containment measures required by the circumstances. We are determined to continue doing our best to support this community, fully respecting the rules and with maximum safety,” said Timur Sardarov, MV Agusta CEO.
This measure was taken to maintain production. Although MV Agusta continues to build bikes, the manufacturing process is completed with reduced personnel.
So, only the necessary departments remain open for now. Furthermore, several measures to prevent the spreading of the Covid-19 epidemic were enforced such as providing the employees with face masks, gloves, sanitising gel and detergents.
Mv Agusta claims that they don’t have any evidence of employees with symptoms connected to Covid-19.
