Statement of the abrasive industry, a key member of the supply chain of all essential productions

Following the decree of the Italian authorities on 22 March 2020 to close all non-essential productions and the requirement from the members of the supply chain of essential productions to notify local authorities to continue production, the manufacturers of abrasives represented by FEPA and its national associations thought it important to highlight to national and European authorities that the abrasive industry is a horizontal market spanning across countless industries. Most particularly, abrasive products are used in the manufacture of virtually all industries defined as essential in fighting Covid-19.

 

By this letter, the European abrasive manufacturers hereby request that the European Commission considers the industry as a vital member of the supply chain of essential productions.
