While the cosmetics industry is gearing up around the world to supply the hygiene products necessary to fight the epidemic of Covid-19 linked to the new coronavirus, Albea is focusing its production on top-priority items such as Hand Sanitizer where we are witnessing a huge peak in demand.

We want to continue to support our customers in this crisis, and contribute to our countries’ economic activity. That is why we are enforcing all possible and every recommended protective measure to protect our people, working closely with our personnel and their representatives to design the best solutions for every site. The health and safety of our people and their families, and our business partners, is Albéa’s absolute priority.

Albea is working with its partners to deliver effective tube packaging solutions in order to fill the shortage in a significantly reduced lead time. Based on the confidence of our package compatibility testing of high alcohol bulk products and similarly hard to hold consumer products, we have approved tubes available in either Laminate or Plastic (extruded) covering 10ml to 200ml fill volume in all regions.

Our partner IWK, leading supplier of tube-filling machines, can assist on requirements, identify the precautions to take on filling lines and provide technical assistance to enable the ramp-up of filling activities.

We are extremely grateful to all our people, in our sites and in their homes, for their mobilization, and for their many solidarity initiatives to help our communities.

We are all citizens of the same world. Together, we will come out of this crisis stronger.

In a market with shorter lead-times and smaller order sizes, digital technology is obviously part of the solution – from digital printing to collaborative platforms via data sharing in real-time. Together with our partner and global specialist of the industrial graphic chain Esko, we have developed pre-press tools for digital printing, as well as a collaborative platform to manage projects within our industrial facilities, across sites, and directly with our customers or their design agencies.
