GROUPE SAB - Press release of March 20, 2020
The Management of Groupe SAB has decided to close its French sites on 18/03/2020 in the evening.
Since 1/3/2020, all of the Groupe SAB ‘s sites have implemented all the measures necessary to protect its employees (health and safety).
We are facing difficulties in sourcing raw materials from suppliers who are closing one after the other.
The halt of carriers also impacts us in the supply of our purchases and sales.
Finally, our customers also close one after the other and cancel their delivery calls without any notice.
For all these reasons, we have decided to temporarily close our production sites in France.
This choice, explained Wednesday afternoon to all employees by the president of the Groupe SAB Jean-François GROSSELIN, was essential and will thus, as recommended by the French government, reduce the spread of the virus and favor the health of our staff.
Attaching particular importance to the quality of our services and in order to be able to be reactive to minimize the consequences of this outage for our jobs, we will maintain business continuity for the following services and favor home office when possible: logistics, methods, accounting / HR, maintenance, sales and management.
We hope to get back to work as soon as possible to resume production and deliveries to our Customers.
Take care of yourself, health is the most important thing.
