Please be assured that service continuity during the COVID-19 outbreak is a priority.
Executive management is meeting on a daily basis to monitor changes in personnel, stock levels, customer consumption patterns and government directives. We’ve established plans for spreading our staff geographically, are having a professional disinfection cleaning of our corporate office this evening and have instituted new HR policies regarding best practices for employees and customer/supplier/contractor interactions.
While we greatly value the personal interaction of our staff with our customers, we’ve asked for periodic site meetings to be virtual and for our drivers to limit their interaction at customer/supplier docks to solely that which is necessary.
Our supply lines are currently uninterrupted and we have a good stockpile of material in our warehouses. We’re following all government and CDC directives regarding work practices.
As you know, this is a fluid situation, so we’re planning for multiple contingencies including interstate commerce interruptions, trucking shortages, supplier shutdowns, etc. We will issue updates anytime something substantive occurs.
We ask that suppliers please share with us any anticipated impact to your production levels, stock consumption, receiving times, site closures, etc. We will work together to make this as seamless as possible.
