We continue to be very proud as we see how our associates are helping each other during these troubled times, and to see that solidarity is a genuinely shared value among our branches.

In February, at the peak of the covid-19 pandemic crisis in China, Vallen México donated 2,000 surgical masks to Sonepar China, which enabled our associates to work in a safer environment.  As we moved into March, we saw that Sonepar China was starting to return to some kind of normality, all the while ensuring business continuity for its customers, as well as the health of its associates.

However, Spain was then particularly affected by the pandemic, and the associates of Sonepar Ibérica's urgently needed surgical masks to help ensure their safety. Sonepar China immediately answered their call, and shipped the first of many batches of masks, which arrived a few days later in Madrid. With their country recovering, and having ensured the survival of local manufacturers, Sonepar China will deliver 50,000 additional masks in the coming days.

Congratulations to Vallen Mexico, Sonepar China and Sonepar Iberica's associates, and to all of our associates around the globe.
