“Caring in COVID-19 times” project awarded (1/2)
For the very special 2020 edition of European Responsible Care Award, CEFIC rewarded Seqens mobilization during the covid-19 crisis and in particular the ability of our group, leader in pharmaceutical synthesis and specialty ingredients, to provide large volumes of hydro-alcoholic solutions despite the exceptional context.
Seqens winner of the 2020 European Responsible Care Awards
Seqens mobilization during the sanitary crisis has earned the judges praise including the rapid engagement of our teams and workshops to propose and implement solutions to accelerate the fight against the COVID 19 while adapting the production lines to the market needs and providing support to local communities, populations at risk and those in needs in donating hydro-alcoholic solution.
Our sector was pushing its capacity limits to meet the exponential rise in demand for disinfectants, diagnostic tests, ventilators, protective masks and protective clothing. It is good to see that this trend continues with production lines converted permanently to produce the materials needed to keep people safe now and in the future.
Seqens is proud of its collaborators’ mobilization during this global health crisis and wants to thank all people who took part in this journey.
I want to thank all the employees who have been mobilized since the March 18th. In such an uncertain context, in the coming key periods and the gradual recovery of business activity, we believe it is essential to remain mobilized to serve our clients and thus help fight against a resurgence of the pandemic. Our NAAHA™ range offers the expertise, traceability and security of supply of a world leader in pharmaceutical synthesis such as Seqens.
