During these unprecedented times involving the global spread of the Coronavirus aka COVID-19, motorcycle manufacturers around the globe like Ducati and more are trying their level best to make sure that their staff are always in good hands but stopping production altogether is not good for the country’s population as well.
That is why Ducati will be reorganising their production lines at their Borgo Panigale factory in Italy to implement safety measure indicated by the new regulatory protocol placed by the Italian government. It’s a whole new way of looking into motorcycle production with limited contact with other staff members in the factory.
With plans to resume operations on 25 March 2020, Claudio Domenicali (CEO of Ducati) stated, “I am proud of how the people of Ducati are facing this difficult moment of health emergency, respecting the directives and following the instructions received. My thanks go to all those who, on a daily basis and even in a difficult situation like this, are confirming the great value of a united, cohesive but also sensitive and attentive workforce.”
“For them, for their safety and for their security, measures and choices like the ones we are making are necessary and owed. However, all the support services for our customers are guaranteed, first and foremost the supply of spare parts. We want to reassure Ducatisti and our dealers all over the world: we are organising ourselves to be ready for the restart and, even in this period of downtime we will not fail to provide support.”
