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 we anticipate an 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.
