COVID-19 – Our contribution
As a supplier to the beverage industry, we are also following the effects of COVID-19 particularly closely. More than ever, our logistics and delivery capacities play a decisive role in the delivery to our customers, who depend on them to ensure the best possible supply. We are very grateful to our employees, who have been doing an excellent job for weeks and give their best every day. Each of us knows that it is important to stick together right now. In these unprecedented times, we are doing everything we can to ensure the health and safety of our employees, customers and suppliers. In addition to our general COVID-19 prevention measures, druckprofi. from Lichtenfels has now created a mouthpiece in Rudolph design for us. It should be recyclable, which was very important to us for environmental reasons alone. With this we minimise the risks for us and our environment in order to make our contribution to “flattening-the-curve” and to actively interrupt possible chains of infection, because we can wear everything and we are still there for you.

Our long-time employee Marco Plewa and trainer of the U9 of TSG Roth could easily convince us to sponsor a complete set of jerseys for his team. We keep our fingers crossed for the new season and wish the youth team of TSG Roth much joy and success with their new jerseys.
Thank you for your interest
