OMAS continues work on Paris mill
PARIS, FRANCE - Despite the ongoing coronavirus
(COVID-19) pandemic, OMAS is continuing construction of
a wheat mill in Paris, France.
" Programming and organizational skills are our strong
suits, " said Luigi Nalon, chief executive officer of OMAS,
when talking about the company's approach to this unprecedented challenge.
The OMAS team working on the Paris-based plant includes
22 specialized mechanics who are completing the assembly of
the mill despite the problems caused by the lockdown.
To protect their health, all OMAS operators were tested for
COVID-19 before leaving for Paris.
Four months into the project, 75% of this huge milling system is already assembled, in line with the timetable,
" An excellent result, considering the ongoing pandemic, "
Nalon said. " We could achieve it thanks to the professionalism
of our supervisors and expertise of our assemblers, whose priority was to meet the client's goal to start up the mill on the
agreed date. A handshake is even more binding than a contract. We at OMAS comply with our agreements to provide
our clients with excellent service. "
