Maverick, one of the main national suppliers of hygiene and personal
care products, has made a large donation of essential products to
help in this fight against the coronavirus.
Maverick, a company specialised in developing and manufacturing
hygiene and personal care products, with plants in Ulldecona
(Tarragona) and San Fernando de Henares (Madrid), wanted to play its
part in the country’s fight against the Covid-19 epidemic and it
has done so through a considerable donation of essential hygiene
products. Specifically we are talking about a shipment of more than
21,000 units, which were sent on Friday the 17th of April to the La
Fe de Valencia Field Hospital; a temporary facility which will be
opened in the coming days.
altruistic action, Laboratorios Maverick wanted to help to improve
the material conditions in which the healthcare workers are working
in their fight against coronavirus, while also giving all of those
who form part of our country’s healthcare service and who are
helping the people who have been affected by Covid-19, day after day,
the recognition that they deserve.
“In light of
the extraordinary situation that our country is currently facing,
Laboratorios Maverick would like to help all of the healthcare staff
who have been working passionately to provide their services
throughout this crisis, and that is why we have collaborated by
sending 21,650 essential products, because #THISNEEDNOTSTOP and the
only way we will get through this is if we work together and pull in
the same direction with a common goal” explains Pedro Pérez,
General Director of Laboratorios Maverick.
The La Fe de
Valencia Field Hospital which will be in use as of this week, will
admit coronavirus patients with mild or moderate symptoms and who
have progressed well over the last eight days. The infrastructure
will be installed at least until the end of the year and it boasts a
total of 370 beds, 29% more than its usual capacity.
Maverick is a leading company specialising in the development and
manufacturing of innovative and sustainable personal hygiene and care
products, and it has formed part of Grupo Ubesol (with headquarters
in Adzaneta de Albaida, Valencia) since 2006. The company’s
commitment to R&D&I is reflected in its recruitment of more
than 70 specialist professionals with experience in leading
qualified professionals with proven track records have made it
possible for Laboratorios Maverick to improve both the quality and
competitiveness of its products, leading it to become one of Spain’s
main suppliers in its sector. Fully aware of its social
responsibilities, Laboratories Maverick has taken additional steps to
be able to maintain its production and avoid any product shortages
during the current health crisis.
Maverick has stepped up its commitment to sustainability, and it now
forms part of the Global Compact Network Spain, sharing the United
Nations initiative to implement the Sustainable Development Goals
(SDG) by minimising or eliminating the impact of its activities by
reducing, reusing and recycling. Proof of this lies in the fact that
the extrusion plant which is located in Ulldecona produces more than
100 million PET bottles, which are 100% recyclable, and a large
proportion of the bottles have been produced from recycled plastic.
Likewise, it is developing a wide portfolio of sustainable products,
which will be available in 2020, some of which meet all of the
requirements for Cosmos Certification.
