At a time of global health crisis that affects all our lives, the word "safety" in the workplace takes on its full meaning, especially for those professionals who are on the front line - the carers, of course, but also all the workers who continue to keep the country's vital sectors running. This is why, aware of our pivotal role as an expert in protective equipment and a major player in the market for prevention in the workplace, we are mobilizing our industrial and technological capacity to supply alternative masks for non-health use.
In collaboration with the Institut français du textile-habillement (IFTH) and the Direction générale de l'armement (DGA), and in coordination with La Facim (industrial technology base for defense and security equipment)*, we have developed and certified textile barrier masks for non-health use (C-AIR masks, reference UNSC2). Our C-AIR masks are designed for people in the workplace who have occasional contact with other people, and offer the following benefits:
In addition, our Lafont brand, a specialist in work clothing since 1844, is mobilized to provide equipment such as gowns, tunics, chasubles and pants for staff working in hospital wards, who are particularly exposed to the coronavirus.
Our employees have set up teleworking arrangements to ensure the continuity of the Group's activities, while protecting their health and that of their families.
Our logistics capacity, delivery service and e-commerce site are fully operational to guarantee quality service in the safest possible conditions.
Our sales teams are on hand to help you.
If you need to track your orders or any other information, we're here to help you manage current and future projects. For this, we invite you to use e-mail, telephone, Skype or WhatsApp.
Rest assured of our commitment to you.
CEPOVETT Group management*Facim, the industrial technology base for defense and security equipment, is itself called upon by government buyers such as the Ministry of the Armed Forces (Minarm), the Ministry of the Interior's purchasing department (Sailmi), the Civil Security Department (Dgscgc), the French General Directorate for Enterprise (DGE) and the State Purchasing Department (DAE).
A pandemic is sweeping the planet, affecting us all in our daily lives. This health crisis calls on us to take up a humanitarian and social challenge that is unparalleled both in its scale and in the speed with which it can be implemented. We are facing up to this challenge with a clear conscience, united in solidarity, to respond in a responsible and committed way, in strict compliance with the measures taken by European governments. Every day, Cepovett Group teams demonstrate exceptional commitment to the same objective: to protect our manufacturing and supply chain so that we can continue to offer you our equipment and services, but also to optimize our operational capacity, and even, in this very particular context, to reorient our production to manufacture standardized masks for category 1 and 2 non-healthcare use.
Our top priority is to ensure the safety of our employees, but our responsibility, as a major player in the workplace prevention market, is also to equip all the workers who continue to keep the country's vital sectors running. Starting with healthcare professionals, who are on the front line.
Faced with strong demand for equipment for hospital staff, Cepovett Group is responding thanks to its industrial facilities and the Lafont brand, which has a strong presence in the healthcare market.
It's our duty to contribute to the national effort, because safety and health for everyone have been engraved in our DNA for 176 years.
Thank you for your confidence, take care of yourself and your loved ones.
