Vytrus Biotech Sterilizes Masks in the Fight against COVID-19
The masks have been made by a network of village volunteers and Vytrus Biotech has helped sterilize them at its facilities in order to guarantee their use for all types of healthcare personnel and the general public.
‘As a responsible company with our community, we have made an effort to contribute with our resources and facilities to help in the battle against Covid-19 at local level’, says Albert Jané, CEO of Vytrus Biotech.
The first batch of 730 masks has already been distributed by Sant Quirze del Vallès City council and the volunteers are already working on the manufacture of a second batch of masks that will be sterilized at Vytrus Biotech’s laboratory as soon as it is received.
This action has been possible thanks to the effort of Vytrus’s collaborators, a team committed not only to the organization, but also to society in general. ‘I am very proud of our team in maintaining the company’s level of activity and making this extra effort to help in these extraordinary circumstances’, adds Albert Jané.
Since the proclamation of the state of alarm by the Spanish government, Vytrus Biotech has rapidly implemented several measures such as teleworking, adaptation of rotating shifts in all departments, and the development of a safety manual as an internal protocol to guarantee the ingredient standards, with the aim of fulfilling the commercial commitments acquired, trying to ensure the safety and health of its human team and all collaborators involved.
