The hardware and DIY sector continues to seek support, join the initiative

The sector claims its key role in the COVID-19 and Eurobrico crisis puts itself at its service to boost reopening

Have you not yet joined the initiative presented by the main operators that make up the Spanish hardware and DIY sector? You're on time. The sector, led by major distributor associations (ADFB) and Manufacturers (AFEB) and EUROBRICO, it continues to add support day after day and join forces to get the hardware and DIY businesses in Spain reopened.

Professionals in the sector have been working together for weeks on a letter to the Minister of Health and the Secretary of State for Trade, stressing that hardware stores and DIY centers are "home pharmacies" and supplying necessities, without which no dwelling can continue to function.

In the menu they recalled that the hardware and DIY sector, made up of almost 8.000 outlets, "is trained to perform a controlled opening, with the requirement to ensure the safety of customers and employees, preventing the spread of the disease". By this, requested that it be allowed to open in an orderly manner, now that the emergency situation is starting to be under control, and that the hardware and DIY sector was declared a priority.

This movement wants to have all the players in the sector, many of which have shown interest in joining the support movement for our sector.

If you're an association or a distributor, Cheer up. JOIN THE INITIATIVE!!
