Panini SpA, a global leader in check truncation and secure identity solutions, has collaborated with company shareholders to contribute €100,000 to the communities where its employees live and work to help with the emergency response to COVID-19. Panini’s deep connections to its local communities are based on 75 years of operation in Torino, Italy and 25 years in Dayton, Ohio. The company recognizes the tremendous burden, health crisis and impact on its local communities caused by COVID-19, and this action has been taken to directly support the need for critical care, research, social assistance, and economic support.
According to Panini’s CEO Michael Pratt, “Panini understands its responsibility and obligation to help our communities fight this terrible virus and provide assistance to those suffering from its devastating consequences.” The company notes the contribution was made possible by the tireless efforts and dedication of Panini’s global employees in combination with Panini’s concerned and compassionate shareholders. “Companies have a social responsibility to be part of the solution and demonstrate leadership by contributing to the relief effort while sustaining the future economy by acting responsibly towards employees, suppliers and clients,” says Pratt. “Our communities need help now.”
