Wishes for the Chinese Lunar New Year of the Ox


Published on February 22, 2021

Our team in China, along with many people around globejust celebrated the 2021 Spring Festival and entered the Lunar New Year, the Year of Ox. Ox is one of China’s Zodiac and in Chinese culture the ois a hard-working and docile animal. Isymbolizes diligence, dependability, strength, and determination. In Western culture, the ox symbolizes wealth and power, and Hinduism sees ox as representing good luck. 

Reflecting on 2020, many things have happened in the world that dramatically changed or impacted our lives, the COVID-19 global epidemic, the Australian wildfires and many other colossal events.  We have seen the importance of dedication and collaboration throughout the world in fight against the virus, each of us playing an integral part, a witness and a participant at the same time.  Oliver is proud to do our part to deliver the sterile packaging material used for PPE supporting frontline medical workers and that products such as Oliver’s Xhale coated materials can be used on pre-fillable syringes to pack vaccines around the world to ensure cleanness and safety. Very recently in our Suzhou facility in China, we just kicked off the expansion for a 10,000 square feet ISO 7 clean room, to be prepared to continue to support the increased demand in the fight against COVID-19. 

In this year of the Ox, Oliver is committed to provide the highest level of quality and care, so our customers can deliver longer, heathier lives. Oliver is diligently working hard to contribute to the accelerated vaccine deployment needed around the world.   

Again, join us welcoming the New year of Ox, warm wishes to our friends and customers for a Healthy, Happy and Prosperous year ahead!
