Because of incorrect and misleading information coming from all the media around the world, I would like to clarify the operational situation of the RIPOL Group.
ALL THE COMPANIES OF THE RIPOL GROUP IN ITALY AND ABROAD ARE OPEN AND OPERATIONAL.
On Saturday evening (March 21st, 2020) the Governor of Lombardy promulgated a decree which has validity in Lombardy. On Sunday evening (March 22nd, 2020) the Italian Prime Minister issued an executive order valid in the Republic of Italy.
We are very happy to inform you that RIPOL is classified as a chemical company (NACE code 20) and therefore belongs to the group of companies of “national interest”. In both decrees it is clearly stated that companies belonging to that group are authorized to continue production if exceptional measures are implemented to protect its employees and prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. RIPOL had already implemented a very strict health protocol since the outbreak of the Corona Virus.
I would like to thank you in advance for your trust in us so far and I hope that our relationship of partnership will grow stronger and stronger. I do hope that together we will be able to overcome this most difficult moment.
Might God bless and protect you and your families.
