The Zegna Group Reopens Production Facilities To Produce Hospital Suits

The group aims to manufacture 280,000 units of protective hospital suits for medical staff

Following the devastation caused by the coronavirus pandemic, the Zegna Group has pitched in with donations and assistance in manufacturing essentials like face masks. Now, the group has reopened its production facilities in Italy and Switzerland in order to manufacture protective hospital suits, with an aim of producing 280,000 units for medical staff.

As a collective effort made possible by the collaboration between the Zegna Group, Fondazione Zegna, the Piedmont Region of Italy and the Canton of Ticino in Switzerland, these measures will provide urgently needed supplies for both the Piedmont Region (250.000 units) and the Canton of Ticino (30.000 units). The group has converted a portion of its INCO plant in Novara and parts of the CONSITEX plant in Mendrisio to accommodate suit production.

Furthermore, the Zegna Group is also proactively collaborating with the Piedmont Crisis Unit and relevant authorities in the Canton of Ticino to speed up production in an effort to meet the pressing need for vital medical supplies. “Let’s look out for each other. Let’s get through this together,” said Gildo Zegna, CEO of Ermenegildo Zegna, in closing.
