Heartfelt thanks for having walked the path of this difficult year with us.
This year has brought tough challenges and major changes, with recurring lockdowns that have forced us to adapt our routines and our way of life. Yet, in a complex year like 2020, the Fenzi Group managed to ensure the seamless supply of goods to all of its partners and international clients. Thanks to the unflagging commitment of its in-house teams, their unbelievable professionalism and willingness to work non-stop, it became clear just how essential they are to the activities of the entire Group.
Throughout the first part of the year, all of the Fenzi, Alu Pro, Rolltech and Tecglass plants stayed open – except for a couple weeks when the Chinese production and sales facilities had to extend the New Year’s celebration as did all the other businesses in the country. The separate lockdowns, with different timing in various parts of the world in which our clients are located, did not discourage the Group’s companies which, with their combined efforts and teamwork supported all the partners, even during the most troublesome months.
In terms of production, the many projects that have continued to invigorate the glass sector have, in a number of ways, made this year as pivotal as it was normal. The glass industry is demonstrably healthy and can rely on its outstanding strengths and energies to overcome the global crisis, even though the future is definitely unknown.
“It is too early to draw conclusions about the pandemic,” remarked Alessandro Fenzi. We are involved in a marathon that certainly will not cross the finish line before the end of 2021. We can, however, be pleased with what has been accomplished to date. Let’s close out this year and prepare ourselves for the new one, aware of having withstood the onslaught of Covid. We can only hope that 2021 will be the first post-pandemic year but we have no doubt that it will be a very important year for us – we will celebrate the 80th anniversary of our company’s founding. A significant milestone that reminds me to think of all those who have contributed and are contributing to this exciting journey. Every goal must also be a point of departure from which we move ahead, proud of what we have achieved and ready for the coming challenges.”
