Perlon posted the following statement on March 17, 2020 from Frank Winkes and Ralf Hellinger, Vice Presidents, Sales & Marketing, Perlon Group:
Perlon produces quality filaments at five sites on three continents for its customers and operates a strategy of acting globally but producing locally while sourcing where possible from local suppliers. In times like this in which familiar delivery networks have come to a halt, this strategy is paying dividends. At the time of writing (March 17, 2020), we can report that all of our sites are operating normally and at full capacity on fulfilling customer and stock orders. There are currently no supply shortages of our raw materials nor do we foresee any in the short term. We have proactively planned and are keeping our stock levels high to enable us to optimally offset any possible temporary supply disruption of any of our suppliers.

Since the well-being of the employees is the company’s top priority, Borghi S.p.A. wishes to adhere even closer to the protocol issued by the Italian Government, which provides for the suspension of production activities under the current special circumstances.
