Safilo continues to globally implement multiple controls and prevention measures in response to the current situation, following all safety procedures throughout the entire supply chain, from manufacturing sites to the distribution network.
Safilo has put in place dedicated prevention measures that are being enforced locally, in Safilo’s North American distribution center in Denver, CO and in the company’s Smith manufacturing plant and lensing facility based in Clearfield, UT.
Safilo continues to provide uninterrupted service, taking orders 24/7 online via their B2B websites and via customer service centres. Safilo N.A. customer service teams continue working remotely and operating with regular hours and a new chat feature was introduced on the b2b site in the U.S. and Canada.
Virtual training seminars have been extended through the end of May. Customers can contact their Safilo sales rep or visit www.mysafilocanada.com for sign-up details.
Protective eyewear solutions are being developed, including face shields and safety glasses produced in Safilo factories in the U.S. and Italy, that will be available for eye care practitioners to use in-store and to retail to end consumers. Products will be available in the near future with more details to follow.
Safilo launched #united4eyecare and has repurposed a portion of their manufacturing facilities to produce safety glasses and facial shields to be supplied to hospitals and frontline medical workers in critical need around the world.
