The Tecnica Group announced on March 20 that it has activated a “Covid-19 risk insurance policy” for all its collaborators to help them in the current difficult situation, in addition to implementing all the required safety protocols. The policy, which has been subscribed with the Generali insurance company, covers a range of medical expenses that are not covered by the national health system.

The Italian group, whose brands include Tecnica, Nordica, Blizzard, Lowa, Moon Boot and Rollerblade, said it has decided to close its headquarters as well as the offices of its subsidiaries in the U.S., France, Austria and Switzerland, asking employees in customer service, sales, marketing, general management and product development to continue to work remotely. The various brands will continue to communicate with their communities through the social networks. On the other hand, the group’s production sites in Hungary, Ukraine and Slovakia, where it is still possible to work safely, are still open, operating at full capacity.
