Marangoni preparing plant in Germany to take over all European production
Italy’s Prime Minister announced last week that non-essential production within the country must stop in order to combat the coronavirus pandemic. Marangoni Retreading Systems has asked the government to clarify whether the transportation sector counts as an essential service under the new rules, but at the same time has taken steps to ensure its ability to continue meeting demand should production at its Ferentino cease.
Demand for Marangoni’s products will be met by plants outside Italy. In particular, Marangoni Retreading Systems intends to utilise its Henstedt-Ulzburg plant near Hamburg, Germany. On Friday, the company reported that “in order to prevent any problems due to the eventual suspension of the Italian production’s activities,” it has “already started organising its plant in Henstedt-Ulzburg (Germany) to serve all its European customers.”
