- How is Jacob Holm ensuring product safety?

In addition, we have eliminated employee travel, limited on-site personnel and vendors, enforced new social distancing measures including prioritizing virtual meetings and restricting use of common spaces and made accommodations for those employees who are particularly vulnerable to health concerns.
Given the critical nature of our products, which serve as baby wipes, surgical gowns and facial masks among other applications, producing ultrapure products free from microbiological contamination has always been a crucial part of our quality control. With on-site laboratories, strict sanitation guidelines and diligent production traceability, we continue to maintain the product quality our customers have come to expect.
