We are a Critical Manufacturer

March 20, 2020

On March 19, 2020 the Governor of the State of California issued a Stay at Home Order mandating citizens of California remain in their homes except as allowed for the support of 16 Critical Infrastructure sectors as outlined by the Department of Homeland Security. WARCO BILTRITE falls within the Critical Manufacturing sector, as our products are key in the supply chain of Critical Infrastructure.

We are currently, and intend to, continue operating as normally as these unprecedented circumstances allow.

We have implemented increased safety and social distancing standards for our employees and have not been notified that there are any delays or hindrance in materials from our suppliers. That said, while we are doing all within our ability to stay current as things are evolving at rapid pace.

We are requesting all customers with multiple orders placed with us to communicate your priorities so that we can help our team prioritize for you. Although we cannot adjust our planning fully to every request, we will make an effort to respond accordingly.

As we have seen in the past days and weeks, the communication flow within our supply chains is critical. We will continue to update our status at warco.com/covid. Our sales and customer service teams are working remotely but are available to you. Please call 714-532-3355 or email sales@warco.com to contact us.

We are proud to be an American manufacturer and of the critical contributions our products and customers make supporting vital functions of our country.

Sincerely,

A Letter from Our President

March 16, 2020

The world health community continues to closely monitor the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the disease it causes, named “Coronavirus Disease 2019” (COVID-19). At this time, the severity and duration of this outbreak are unknown. Given this uncertainty and the ultimate affect it will have globally and domestically, we are taking all necessary measures to protect and shore up our supply chain in an effort to maintain normalcy unless or until we are directed to do otherwise

We are in constant contact with our vendors and as of yet, we have not been notified that there will be an interruption in raw material flow. Additionally, as a fully integrated manufacturer, we maintain a varied supply of raw materials with very few items being sole sourced.

As we have witnessed during the past weeks, situations are evolving quickly. We will provide further updates and guidance should weanticipate interruption in your materials and will post updates on this webpage.

In the meantime, we have advised our employees of the importance of implementing the precautions advised by the CDC, which include social distancing, increased hygiene measures and staying home from work when they or a member of their household is ill. It is important to us that we foremost protect our people, customers, and community while minimizing any potential interruptions to our business.

Contact us today for your immediate and future needs as we continue to maintain a solid inventory base of raw and finished goods to service you. We will work together as a nation and global community to overcome the great challenge this virus has presented.

Sincerely,

Signature
Timothy J. Hemstreet
President & Chief Executive Officer
