The collaborative effort between Ence and Kartogroup – a company that produces tissue paper – made it possible to provide 44 primary care centres and hospitals in Montecelo, Provincial and O Salnés with two trucks full of paper for medical and hygienic use. Ence emphasised that “in this way the two companies are collaborating in the fight against coronavirus, given the importance of ensuring supplies of cellulose products, especially tissue paper, for medical centres, the main application of Ence’s cellulose, necessary for the hygienic measures to prevent and combat COVID- 19”.

The company stated that this donation of 24 tons of medical supplies is yet another example of a “commitment to the community” as a “priority.” He added that “This is evidenced by Ence’s social plan, which, year after year, contributes to improving the quality of life of Pontevedra’s residents. Actions such as this demonstrate the company’s firm commitment to the cities and people associated with the Lourizán biofactory”.

The president of the provincial government of Castelló, José Martí, thanked Kartogroup for its gesture of solidarity. Based in Borriana, the company donated six tons of toilet paper and paper towels for medical and social uses to the provincial institution.

José Martí explained that during the week the Provincial Hospital, General University Hospital of Castelló, La Plana de Vila-real Hospital, and municipal hostel of Castelló had already received some of this material, and stated that “these kinds of gestures are particularly moving because they show that we have a business community and private initiatives committed to society and its problems, ready to pitch in and help institutions face the pandemic, for everyone’s benefit”.

This type of donation is very useful and helps to bolster the actions undertaken by the Diputación since the declaration of the health emergency, facilitating access to medical and disinfectant supplies. During this period the provincial institution has acquired more than 200,000 euros worth of protective material, which has been provided to municipalities and associations so that their workers who carry out essential tasks can be properly protected.

It has also coordinated the large-scale acquisition of FFP2 masks, enabling municipalities in the province to purchase nearly 370,000 of them.

The president also wished to express his gratitude for the efforts of vehicle fleet staff, whose “work is proving decisive for the distribution of the material acquired by the Diputación and for the management of the donations received”. He added that “as a citizen of the province of Castelló, and as president of the Diputación, I want to thank you all”.
