As the global leader in preanalytical collection and transport devices, COPAN has a responsibility to serve the Microbiology and Medical community with passionate work towards innovation and improvement in our field. COPAN recognizes that even though our products may be used at the beginning of the process, we never ever forget that there is a human being at the end.
COPAN is committed to the growth and well-being of our employees, and contributing to the immediate communities in which we reside. It is with the support of our hardworking, dedicated employees, and our strong community that we continue to do the important work that we do.
Impact on Employees
As a family owned company, employees are often thought of as part of the family. This is certainly the case for the COPAN family, and it is evident in the recent installation of a garden placed at the COPAN headquarters in memory of COPAN's beloved CEO and Founder, Daniele Triva. COPAN employees often enjoy lunch or a quiet moment reflecting under a sign that adorns the garden, which reads "choose a job that you love and you will never work a day in your life."
COPAN knows that a work team that feels a part of the company (and family) is invaluable to success and well-being for all. COPAN is dedicated to providing services and programs to ensure happy and healthy employees.
In addition to providing free gym memberships to employees, COPAN provides a subsidized meal program in the onsite cafeteria, in which healthy meals are served at a very low cost to the employee.
COPAN's Peter Pan Center provides low cost daycare and kindergarten services for the newborns and children of COPAN employees.
An event area at COPAN's headquarters can be utilized by employees for events such as family reunions, birthdays and other private events for a nominal fee.
Impact on Community
COPAN provides the Microbiology and Medical community with access to instructional guides and videos on proper specimen collection. These important guides have always been available free of charge.
The COPAN FUTURA Science Park provides an "incubator" for new ideas and a platform to continually design, manufacture, and launch advanced technologies to revolutionize the field of preanalytics in general, with special emphasis on Microbiology. Emerging companies have access to office and production space at a low price allowing them to grow their business without incurring high overhead costs.
Impact on Environment
For the 30 years in which COPAN has been manufacturing products, the company has utilized a customized fully automated system for separating molded product from waste material, which is then 100% recycled.
COPAN utilizes solar energy to power its manufacturing facility, which uses a dedicated that includes 14,000 square meters for solar energy generation and 5,000 roof mounted panels. In addition to providing power for the facility's manufacturing needs, COPAN produces additional power, which it provides to nearby businesses helping make an even stronger positive impact on the environment. The CO2 emissions offset annually are comparable to that produced by the consumption of over 71,000 gallons of gasoline and equate to greenhouse emissions avoided by recycling 214 tons of waste.
