THE “SOLIDARITY RELAY” OF THE EPTA GROUP FOR LOCAL COMMUNITIES

04/05/2020

Italy is fighting an unprecedented health emergency, with a twofold objective: to contain, on the one hand, the spread of the infection and, on the other, the economic impact. In this context, many companies have taken action to support the worst-affected areas. These include Epta, represented by the Nocivelli and Triglio Godino families, which has stepped up ready to do its part, driven by a great sense of responsibility and recognition in respect of the territories in which its factories are operating.

From Limana (BL) to Solesino (PD), historic locations of the Costan and Eurocryor brands, and from Casale Monferrato (AL) to Pomezia (RM), historic locations of the Iarp and Misa brands, the Group has wanted to give a concrete and tangible sign of its presence, choosing to donate a total of over 1 million Euro to respond to the emergency with targeted initiatives. A true and proper solidarity relay, which has seen more than 50% of the amount go to local communities: €200,000 have been donated to ULSS (Local Health and social care services) 1 Dolomites, €100,000 to ULSS (Local Health and social care services) 6 Euganea, €200,000 to the City of Casale Monferrato and, finally, €100,000 to the City of Pomezia.

A further contribution of €500,000 has been allocated to fundraising for the San Raffaele Hospital of Milan, started by Anima Confindustria Meccanica, of which Marco Nocivelli, President and CEO of Epta is President. A concrete and meaningful gesture, aimed at triplicating the intensive care units, equipping the hospital with an additional tensile structure that will host intensive care beds with all the assisted respiration and monitoring systems and, in the medium-long term, to support the study of a vaccine. The San Raffaele was chosen because it is one of the most brilliant examples of international scientific research.

Many difficult situations are emerging and local and regional authorities are trying to tackle them in the best possible way, deploying all the means at their disposal. But resources are not enough.” Marco Nocivelli President and CEO of Epta intervenes and continues, “That is why we have decided, driven by a strong sense of responsibility, to offer our support to all these places where Epta is present. A sign of the Company’s willingness to return what it has received to the territory and maintain a strong connection with its roots, expressing our gratitude and making our closeness felt.”
