MB92 Reopens La Ciotat and Barcelona Facilities

The MB92 Group has announced the reopening of its facilities in La Ciotat and Barcelona.

Work resumed on April 14 and will be scaled up under “strict procedures” that limit the number of people working at the shipyard. The movement of people throughout all the sites is also being controlled.

The move comes following signs the coronavirus outbreak is easing in France and Spain. MB92 originally suspended production on March 16.

Chief executive and president, Pepe García-Aubert, said: “Given the significant flow of people into and out of our facilities and the rising number of cases in Europe, the MB92 Group was as prudent as possible to protect everyone’s health, especially when considering the reduced availability of adequate personal protective equipment (PPE) at that time”.

MB92 said it has since sourced enough personal protect equipment (PPE) to begin work again.

The company added that it has introduced measures to reduce contact between staff working at the facilities. Office staff continue to work from home in an effort to socially distance.

García-Aubert added: “We have always believed that our ability to adapt to difficult situations and find solutions for our clients was one of the keys to our success. Today it is thanks to this quality that we will overcome this crisis and be stronger as a result.”
