Statement on the Coronavirus
March 16. 2020
Like many of you, we have spent the last couple of weeks learning about the coronavirus and how its spread is impacting our world. For BAND-IT, that means understanding how it affects our customers, suppliers, employees and communities around the globe. Our executive team is closely monitoring the situation and have made some initial changes to protect the health and safety of our employees. This plan includes restrictions on business travel, requiring employees not come to work when sick, displaying posters with preventative tips, enhancing facility cleaning protocols, limiting visitors, and implementing remote working options for our employees to limit risk of exposure.
Currently we are open and shipping product, but as this is a dynamic situation, that could change. In addition, we are working with our suppliers, logistics partners, and local governments to understand and limit potential disruptions within our business. We will continue to monitor the situation and update you with information as necessary.
Shipments to States with Shelter in Place Orders - Urgent Action Needed
If your state is under a “Shelter in Place” order, our shipping partners have notified us that they require us to obtain proof from you that your business will be open. Delivery will not be attempted without this proof. Please include a statement that you will be open during the “Shelter in Place” period on all purchase orders moving forward. If you have already submitted a purchase order please contact your sales person for assistance.
Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions, including about our continued commitment to serving you during this time.
We will revise this post with any future updates.
