Albéa’s Vandières and Argonne (France) and Lubna (Poland) facilities in particular produce millions of tubes for hydro-alcoholic gel while the Lacrost plant (France) manufactures lotion pumps for hand sanitizers.

Albéa and its 15,000 employees around the world have joined the effort to supply packaging for hygiene products amid the COVID-19 pandemic, working alongside customers such as L’Oréal, LVMH, GSK, P&G, Sanofi, Unilever, Bayer, Chemineau, Faberlic, Crystal Cosmetics, as well as their brands, who are adapting their production to provide essential goods and daily hygiene products.

The tube and pump sites in the United States, India, Brazil and Indonesia also contribute to their customers’ initiatives for national solidarity.

Albéa is grateful to all its teams who continue to keep the production lines running during this exceptional period––­and to those who support them by working from home. Many of the company’s teams have also donated masks or other protective equipment to local health centers and hospitals, out of solidarity with the local communities.

Reinforced EHS practices and measures

Since the start of the COVID-19 crisis, Albéa has been rolling out all protective and preventive measures recommended by experts across its industrial sites––working closely with its personnel to constantly improve the way they work, often going beyond common standards and local requirements. The goal is to constantly implement the best practices available, in a continuous improvement mindset.

Albéa’s top priority is to ensure the health and safety of its employees, their families, and its business partners, while maintaining the continuity of its activities and thus supporting the economy of the countries and regions where the company operates.
