Situation in India – after announced shutdown
The Indian government yesterday announced extensive measures to stop the spread of SARS-CoV-2. Public life shall be shut down for 21 days.
hubergroup operates major production plants in India. We immediately contacted the local authorities to draw attention to the importance of our products for packaging printing and the global supply of everyday consumer goods. The aim is to receive a certificate of exception and to resume production quickly.
Our global supply chain is designed in such a way that we are able to compensate several weeks of production loss of the Indian plants without an interruption in delivery to our customers. Nevertheless, we are preparing for alternative scenarios in this situation: these include increasing volumes with qualified alternative suppliers.

Detailed update regarding our location in Bolzano Vicentino, Italy
In addition to the previous measures taken against Corona virus pandemic, the Italian Government has now decided to stop all the non-essential production activities. The limitations will be effective from March 25th.
The essential industrial activities have been specified in a Decree-law published on March 22nd.
This group of industries, still allowed to produce, include all the supply chain for food, including packaging industry: it is the packaging that ensures that food and pharmaceutical products can be made available to the end consumer.
Our production facilities in Bolzano Vicentino are running smoothly and will keep in operation under the current conditions in the country.
A precise set of rules and precautions has been fixed by an agreement between Government and Unions for all the companies who are allowed to operate, aimed to preserve the health of the workers and contractors on site, under today conditions.
hubergroup Italia is applying those measures since the beginning of the Coronavirus pandemic, protecting the health of its employees and safeguarding the service to the food supply chain.
hubergroup would like to thank all our staff who keep our business running despite all current challenges we have to face. We highly appreciate their great engagement.
We also want to say “Thank You” to all our partners. Only together we are strong and get through these difficult times.
