Update: Coronavirus (COVID-19) and Our Supply Chain
March 16, 2020
To: Our Valued Customers and Suppliers,
We want to provide you with a status report of key areas of our business that relate to the coronavirus:
Status of material supply: We are not experiencing any disruption to our supply chain due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) at this time. This applies to wire and strip products.
Status of our operations: We are not experiencing any significant operational issues at this time. We are taking all prudent measures to limit the impact of the virus on operations. This includes allowing employees to telecommute. It also includes staggered attendance at work in some areas. We have also restricted all visitors to essential personnel. All travel by our outside sales team has been curtailed.
Status of transportation: We are working closely with our freight forwarders to ensure we have uninterrupted service. We do see potential risks in this area that could lead to higher rates. We are monitoring this closely. At this time there has been no disruption.
We will continue to keep you updated if any of the above changes.
We wish you and your employees the very best during this challenging period.
