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.
In the last days, we have been faced with extensions or tightening of government restrictions and regulations. As a result, the Cartamundi factories, which were already closed, are re-opening later than previously communicated.
Below is the situation of the Cartamundi facilities today.
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.
The Cartamundi factory in Waterford, Ireland, is scheduled to resume operations on Monday, April 13, 2020.
The Fournier facility in Vitoria, Spain, and the Parksons Cartamundi facility in Pardi, India, remain closed until April 14, 2020.
In the US, our facility in Dallas, Texas, is now scheduled to restart production for non-essential business on April 30, 2020, and the East Longmeadow, Massachusetts facility is planned to restart operations on May 4, 2020. The United States Playing Card Company in Erlanger, Kentucky, is 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!
