First step by Ferrari to support area of Modena hit by earthquake

Maranello, 25th May 2012 – Ferrari decided to help the Fonderia Scacchetti in San Felice sul Panaro, where the works have been severely damaged by this week’s earthquake, by relocating some of the activities the company has been working on for Ferrari to other foundries in the area and directly to the in-house “light alloy” department in Maranello.

In an extremely short period of time the tools, the Scacchetti workers can use, will temporarily be transferred to Maranello, while the plant in San Felice sul Panaro is rebuilt and work can get back to normal. Thus, during this transitional period, productivity and employment are ensured.

Meanwhile Ferrari is looking into more direct initiatives or fund raising to contribute to help the people in the area around Modena, hit by the earthquake.
