“Throughout the year which suffered dramatically from the global pandemic, Chargeurs strengthened its CSR commitments and its ability to play a key role in the economy internationally.
The strength of our business model and our innovative capacity enabled us to maintain these advantages and positions in our traditional businesses, despite the backdrop of business disruptions and uncertainties, and even to create new businesses.
By producing reusable masks at the height of the crisis, Chargeurs has established itself in the healthcare sector with a brand that is now synonymous with prevention: Lainière Santé.
All our businesses enabled our Group to make an even greater contribution to a balanced environment. Throughout 2020, Chargeurs stepped up its solidarity actions with its stakeholders, and developed businesses which enabled it to protect employee jobs and continue to serve our customers.”
