Wallbay-Lacoste-Cebu-2020Lacoste has doubled its mask production to 200,000 for frontline essential workers, who are continuing their spirited fight against the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

The first 100,000 masks were produced in just a few weeks following the commencement of the initiative on 23 March.

Praising the work of its factory employees and ‘daily heroes’ in France and Argentina, Thierry Guibert, CEO, Lacoste said: “From the merchants in the Troyes region of France to the medical workers in the San Juan region of Argentina, our teams have been critical for the unprecedented production, allowing us to contribute to the protection of essential workers.

“I’d like to take this moment to express my gratitude to them and to all Lacoste teams around the world.”

He added: “It’s been my pride and joy to see the exceptional ongoing commitment by our artisans day after day. As society moves towards normalcy, they will continue their mission to produce the masks which have become an essential necessity to our daily lives.

“I want to count on you to help thank our teams by sharing this video on your social networks. This is a powerful way for us to show our continued support and to thank them for their ongoing efforts.”
