“We all need to have a common sense of responsibility”
The health crisis linked to the spread of the Covid-19 virus has profoundly disrupted the activity of the COPAC group in recent weeks. In this context, the company has made a priority of ensuring the health security of its employees by closing its six sites since March 18.
“At the same time, we have seen the gradual shutdown of almost all of our clients’ worksites“, says Denis Guinard, President of COPAC, “to best respond to this reality, we have organized ourselves within the framework of a business continuity plan. Teams can be contacted to carry out essential tasks and inform customers of specific requests. This continuity plan is consistent with the logic of the group’s QHSE policy and is based on the recommendations issued by the OPPBTP and the competent authorities.“. For the next few weeks, the group is registering as part of the operational continuity of essential activities. “We owe our teams, as well as our customers, a work organization integrating the current health context and therefore reinforcing the barrier measures“, adds Eric Ferrand, COPAC’s sales and marketing director. A system that is being built day after day, depending on government announcements and the availability of protective equipment. “The recovery will be gradual, difficult and expected to be long-term“, he adds. In this context, the COPAC group will get closer to its partners and customers to assess the financial impact of these difficult times. ““We all need to have a common sense of responsibility with one overriding goal in mind : beating the virus!”, concludes Denis Guinard.
