Collaboration and solidarity in the fight against coronavirus has been a priority for Cedinsa since the epidemic spread in Catalonia. The Mipetricor initiative, promoted by Meritxell Vigo, a Cedinsa engineer, was one of the first in Catalonia to create a solidarity network with the aim of mass-producing hygienic masks.
In just over a month, Mipetricor has managed to attract 31 volunteers and manufacture 32,000 masks, which have been supplied hospitals, nursing homes or social organizations. The manufacturing of these masks has followed the criteria stablished by the corresponding health institutions, using spunbond fabric, with antibacterial properties and 100% waterproof.
Mipetricor has delivered material to institutions and entities from all parts of the Catalan geography. Among other councils, in Aldover (Tarragonès), Montroig del Camp (Alt Camp), Mataró (Maresme), Sant Fruitós de Bages (Bages) or Bagà (Berguedà). They have also been distributed through social organizations such as the Fundació Convent de Santa Clara, Caritas, Banc dels Aliments and the Rauxa Association.
