Brussels, 13 October 2020 - 16 chemical companies and federations across Europe were awarded by the European Chemical Industry Council for their global response to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2020 European Responsible Care awards “Caring in COVID-19 Times” recognised company efforts to keep critical supply chains running, to protect workers and the workplace and to support our communities in the unprecedented times.
Marco Mensink, Cefic Director General praised the winners saying “we are showcasing the amazing work that companies across Europe have done during the COVID-19 pandemic; keeping our society running, keeping the industry running and bringing solutions that matter when the situations have been really difficult”.
Winning companies and federations showcased their quick action to reshape production lines; integrating digitalised processes to meet new demands for critical products, and making them accessible to health, medical and elderly care providers. To protect workers, companies rolled out impressive return to work plans, trained employees, and integrated broad health and safety measures to protect their employees, their families and neighbouring communities.
Chemi-Pharm is honoured to be awarded in the 1st category for “Upholding and reshaping production process”. We used digital tools to stimulate processes and machine operations to improve our efficiency in manufacturing. During the pandemic Chemi-Pharm was able to respond quickly to the increased demand and significantly increase our production volume within a short period of time.
