As a responsible corporate citizen, Rotocon is committed to adhering to regulations issued by the government during the lockdown. So asserts the company’s CEO, Michael Aengenvoort.
The company is deemed to provide essential tools and services to packaging converters producing labels for pharmaceutical goods, food and hygiene products.
‘This means we’re exempted from certain lockdown rules and can continue our business operations,’ Michael explains. ‘However, we’ve reduced the need to travel; we’re implementing strict hygiene protocols; and we’re enforcing physical distancing wherever possible,’ he continues.
‘As we have a mandate to provide an essential service in the packaging value chain, flexible dies are being delivered as normal, as are chromed rotary dies for which we have a sufficient stock of material,’ Michael confirms. ‘Sharpening of rotary dies is also continuing as normal, but we can’t deliver hardened dies as the supplier has closed down,’ he adds.
‘Although this is the best current information we can share, it’s important to note that circumstances can change quickly in these challenging times. Our primary message is that we’re here to support our customers in any way we can.’
