Garessio, 27 November 2016
The production and delivery of Acqua S.Bernardo and The Bio S.Bernardo in mineral water from the Garessio and Ormea plants will resume tomorrow at full capacity.
Last week, as is known, much of the Tanaro Valley, together with Lower Piedmont and Liguria, were the scene of a dramatic flood, which at Garessio, reopened the 1994 flooding injuries.
“I would like first of all to thank everyone, customers, suppliers, partners and the many friends who during these days have shown us their solidarity in a moment of objective difficulty – commented Antonio Biella general manager of Acqua S.Bernardo – My graces naturally goes to all the employees, primarily the plant manager, Gigi Delforno, who did their utmost to carry out the urgent and necessary interventions to try to safeguard our industries. Interventions that have enabled us to meet the expected orders on Friday. A sincere thank you also to the local, provincial and regional authorities, who have been in close contact with us and have worked to restore the traffic, as quickly as possible, even to our trucks that deal with the transportation of water “.
“Now – continues Biella – our first thought is however towards the whole flooded population of our territory. Among the families that suffered damages, fortunately only materials, there are also many of our employees and collaborators of Garessio and Ormea, and of the fractions still isolated or with serious problems of connections. Acqua S.Bernardo has always been born from this land to reach the tables of all Italy. Finally, we also want to reassure our customers and valuable business partners. Fortunately, the flood problems have not created interruptions to our production lines. Objective difficulties and damages have been there, as far as transport and some organizational steps are concerned, but these are problems that have been overcome or are being resolved in the short term. Here in the Valle del Tanaro, moreover, you are used to wearing boots, rolling up your sleeves and cleaning up the mud, to start the next day, with determination and possibly stronger than before “.
