In line with its commitment to the
good of the community, and with years of experience in producing premium
quality hygiene disposables for the consumer goods, away-from-home and
paramedical sectors, INDEVCO Group embarks today on the production of a
pioneering Covid-19 protective gear for the public and the healthcare system.
The new line includes PPE uniforms, Barrier Masks, Medical Face Masks, and
Non-Disposable Masks, in addition to other safety apparatus and sanitization
products, all designed to help the Lebanese people face emerging challenges
amid the threatening socio-economic crisis.
As part of supporting the Group in achieving self-sufficiency, Minister of Industry Dr. Imad Hoballah together with MP & INDEVCO CEO Neemat Frem toured Phoenix Industrial Zone in Safra on Wednesday, April 20, 2020 to get a glimpse of the production process.
Following the tour, Frem stated: “We refuse to let the Lebanese Red Cross front liners bear the irrational cost of the safety outfits. It’s dollar drain. We also refuse to let the medical staff succumb to price gouging when the Lebanese Industry can produce world-class personal safety products”. “We brought out the light in us and decided to achieve self-sufficiency by locally producing the needed Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Our team has answered the call and together we stood tall to meet the needs of the Lebanese market. Coronavirus is now behind us and we’re more than ready to face the Next Big Challenge,” Frem added.
For his part, Minister Hoballah expressed his gratitude to the company’s staff for the record production. He declared: “I have no doubt that you will remain productive and innovative … I can clearly see the progress you have achieved and I salute you for adopting top-notch technologies to beat the emerging obstacles. The Lebanese excellence is the real tangible vaccine for any crisis.”
Finally, Hoballah thanked Frem and the company for donating necessary medical masks to public hospitals across Lebanon. “It is through such serious and dedicated work that the Lebanese Industry will remain alive,” he concluded.
