Uboldo (Va) –  March 25, 2020. LU-VE Group announces that following the issuing of the  Decree of the President of the Council of Ministers of 22 March 2020, due to force majeure, starting from midnight of March 25 until April 3, production will stop at the plants of LU-VE Exchangers and MANIFOLD (Uboldo, Varese), TGD (Travacò Siccomario, Pavia), AIR HEX (Alonte, Vicenza ) and SEST (Limana, Belluno), in order to contribute to the common effort to contain the spread of the virus.

SPIROTECH plant in Bhiwadi (Rajasthan, India) and the former Alfa Laval site in Sarole (Maharashtra, India) will also be closed until April 14, accordingly to the order issued by the Government of India. SEST LU-VE plant in Lipetsk (Russia) will be closed from March 30 to April 5.

For Italian plants, the shipping service (limited to products manufactured by March 23 and spare parts) and goods receipt service will both remain active.

TECNAIR (Uboldo, Varese) will continue to manufacture only the products for urgent orders, required for the fight against Covid-19.

Production proceeds regularly in the factories of HTS (Novosedly, Czech Rep.), SEST LU-VE Gliwice (Poland), LU-VE AIA Asarum (Sweden), FINCOIL LU-VE Vantaa (Finland) and ZYKLUS (Jacksonville, Texas, USA).
