AVH Florensac / Fire in a warehouse

We have learned, with dismay, of the fire that took place on the night of 17 to 18 February (and whose origin is undetermined to this day) in the warehouses of the AVH company in Florensac. More than 90 (ninety) people with disabilities work in this place.

Always in line with our humanistic and proximity approach, our teams at ALTRAD wanted to support and to come to the aid of AVH and its staff very rapidly.

To date, we are offering a space in our workshop number 3, in order to provide AVH with the surface it would be useful for them to restart their production as soon as possible.
Two educators as well as two workers and drivers have arrived in the premises to install storage racks and organise the place to be able to store consumables and screws. A maintenance team is also installing lighting above the new workstations.
We also provide a room to set up an office with computer equipment.
Given our approach within our group, it seemed normal and necessary to present to AVH teams a reactive solution so that they can quickly resume their activity with all their expertise. We are happy to provide this contribution, we wanted to help AVH; this is part of the DNA of our group and we are proud of it.
Through my blog, we will communicate the measures that will be established and applied to contribute to the redeployment of AVH and its staff.

“I want to thank all the members of my team for their support and sincerity”.
