ENERGICA EAGER TO PLUG IN AGAIN

Italian electric superbike manufacturer Energica says it has everything in place to resume production, as soon as Italy’s Covid-19 industrial lockdown restrictions are relaxed. And the company’s chief executive Livia Cevolini (pictured) is clearly keen to revive her Modena-based business as soon as possible.

“Energica has already started organising the production recovery, while confirming and increasing the protection measures already applied before the closure,” Cevolini explained in a statement. “Our production could resume with a maximum of 30 people on an area of 3000 square metres, organised in two or more shifts to further increase the distance between them.

“As before the lockdown, employees will be equipped with surgical masks and gloves. Disinfection will be applied to incoming and outgoing goods. And we have activated Covid-19 insurance for all staff, with coverage until the end of the year. The health and safety of our workers comes first. We are therefore available to consider any further request, including serological tests.

“According to the authorities’ timing, we are ready and lined up on the grid. Our aim is to be able to follow up on our customers’ requests and our growth path as soon as possible. Having markets open and in compliance with local regulations, we will be able to deliver many of the bikes ordered and therefore to restart, including smart working for office staff.

“Last but not least, the reopening of supplier companies will be key. The supply chain is a crucial element for the resuming of the entire production chain, made up of hundreds of suppliers. In our case, more than 80% are Italian.”
