Lacoste Contributing To Battle Against COVID-19
Lacoste, a long-term partner of the Nitto ATP Finals, is doing its part in the battle against COVID-19.
Since the middle of March, nearly 100 employees from the company’s French factories have volunteered to work on the manufacturing of 145,000 washable and reusable masks until 30 April. Some of these masks are intended to supply local shopkeepers and enable them to protect themselves in their daily lives and another part will be made available to the French government in the fight against COVID-19.

Dozens of Lacoste volunteers have also mobilised at the company’s San Juan, Argentina factory, where they are making gowns and masks.
“This mobilisation fully honours our company and reveals the commitment, courage and solidarity of these everyday heroes who work to protect us,” Lacoste wrote in a statement. “Every gesture counts to defeat this pandemic, and a big thank you to our heroes.”
