Incap restarts production in India
In a move to contain the COVID-19 pandemic, the government of India instructed all state governments to introduce a lockdown in March. As a consequence, Incap had to close its factory in Karnataka, India on 23 March.
Restrictions to contain the pandemic in Karnataka region have now been relaxed and Incap’s production at the factory has restarted. Incap’s factory in Straffordshire, UK, remains in operation with somewhat reduced capacity, due to the British government’s measures to contain the COVID-19 pandemic in the UK. “The current relaxation of the restrictions is very positive news. As the restrictions have been ongoing in April–May, we still expect that the impact of the pandemic on our performance will be stronger in the second quarter compared to the first quarter. That said we are happy to be up and running again in all units,” says Otto Pukk, President and CEO of Incap. The health and safety of our employees and other stakeholders remains our priority and we are taking several measures at all our factories to protect them. We also continue to closely monitor the situation and follow the instructions provided by the local governments and health protection agencies,” Pukk continues.
