Colquímica Adhesives, a company based in Portugal and Poland and one of the largest players worldwide in the development and sale of adhesives for industrial applications, readapted its production lines to guarantee the satisfaction of urgent needs caused by the pandemic of the new coronavirus for the most crucial markets: the medical and hospital industry and the food industry.
The company is aware of the importance of its products in the manufacturing processes of essential products, such as food and beverages, baby and adult diapers, sanitary towels, personal protective masks and hospital gowns. A strict contingency plan was adopted, ensuring the health and safety of the employees, to keep the commitment to the market at this particularly demanding time.
The organization is in permanent contact with the local health entities, to support them in providing protective materials for health professionals. At the same time, Colquímica allocated a large part of human and material resources to the production of hand sanitizing gel to donate to hospital centers, nursing homes and police stations.
