Düsseldorf, April 24, 2013. The European Executive Board of C&A has been informed by local sources about the collapse of a building in Savar, about 18 miles (30km) north of Dhaka. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and families of this tragic event”, said Thorsten Rolfes, Head of Corporate Communications for C&A Europe. Based on our best information we can say that C&A has no contractual relationship with any of the production units that were facilitated in the building, and therefore there was no listed C&A production. A European importer to C&A did have its production facilities in the building, but the relationship with this contractor ended in October 2011. Whilst we are aware of the contractor`s website which still shows C&A as a client, we can confirm that the information contained on this site is outdated and all contractual links ended in 2011.
