COVID-19 UPDATE: OPEN FOR BUSINESS

As providers of glass industries our manufacturing sites have continued to operate throughout the Covid-19 pandemic whilst adjusting to the new safe working and hygiene guidelines.

Many of our office staff, mainly of the sales team, continue to work from home, but a significant core of people are working from the office to facilitate production, administrative and logistic operations.

To maintain the health and wellbeing of our employees, customers and suppliers we will continue to follow these sanitary guidelines unless otherwise advised by the appropriate authorities.

SIGMA has supported the local authority and officially thanked for its active participation in fundraising at the early phase of the pandemic, when the dramatic impact of the pandemic had very pragmatic implications like the need to find gloves, face masks, surgical gowns and even worse the necessity to find medical equipment for the intensive care units.

Events

To build relationships and network with the Glass Industry personnel from all over the world and find new business opportunities, SIGMA generally takes part in the major exhibitions and events planned in the year.

This year, unfortunately, due to the current and still uncertain sanitary conditions combined with the travelling difficulties, SIGMA has decided not to participate in the events planned in the first semester of 2021, i.e. Mirstekla, China Glass, Glasstec, this last one recently officially cancelled.

SIGMA will make decisions whether participating or not in the remaining events planned in the second half of the year on the basis of the global sanitary evolution.
