Cartamundi operational at reduced capacity
These are exceptional times for all of us. Our thoughts are with all of you and your loved ones, and we hope that you stay safe and healthy.
The health and safety of our employees is our core priority. At the same time, we also work on the continuation of service to our customers. To safeguard the output of our factories across the globe, Cartamundi has implemented additional health and safety measures and guidelines – many of which are more stringent than governmental guidelines.
At this moment, the Cartamundi facilities in Japan, Brazil, Germany, Poland, France, and Belgium are operational. It is, however, possible that the capacity in these facilities is reduced for reasons of health and safety or the availability of raw materials.
Despite all of the Catamundi guidelines, we are currently unable to keep all of our factories operational. Several authorities imposed non-essential businesses to cease operations temporarily. As a result, the following Cartamundi facilities are currently closed.;
The Cartamundi factory in Waterford, Ireland, is scheduled to resume activities on Monday, April 13, 2020
The Fournier facility in Vitoria, Spain, and the Parksons Cartamundi facility in Pardi, India, are closed until April 14, 2020.
In the US, our facility in Dallas, Texas, is scheduled to restart production for non-essential business on April 6, 2020, and the East Longmeadow, Massachusetts facility has planned to restart operations on April 8, 2020. The United States Playing Card Company in Erlanger, Kentucky, is now closed temporarily.
We will continue to evaluate the situation, and we will be working closely with you, our customers and partners, to identify your needs and priorities.
We will keep you updated on any significant changes, and as soon as the situation subsides, we will, of course, resume to normality.
Thank you for your continued support!
