COVID-19 Response Measures
To our Valued Customers and Partners:
With the rapidly evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) situation around the world, we are continuing to monitor the situation to minimize risk, avoid disruption, and provide continuity of supply. Daily executive meetings and frequent communications have been implemented internally to relay our best, proactive course of action as the situation evolves.
It is our intention to remain open unless we are mandated to close by Federal, State or Local authorities.
The health and safety of our employees and their families, customers, partners and communities is of highest importance. As the situation continues to evolve, our procedures evolve as well. The following are precautions already in place for both Northern Composites locations:
Travel: We have implemented a guideline for the postponement of international and domestic business travel. We are re-evaluating this regularly to determine the best next steps. Travel critical to business operations will be evaluated for both safety and business continuity.
Visitors: While we normally have few visitors to our facilities, this is now being limited to critical situations only and visitors will be screened.
Employees: We are working hard to protect the wellbeing of our employees. Northern employees have been reminded of good hygiene practices such as hand washing. Guidelines from the World Health Organization regarding optimal hygiene practices have been distributed to employees. Employees in both facilities have access to essential items such as hand sanitizers and disinfectant hand soaps.
We have implemented a schedule to minimize the number of employees in our facilities at any time; most are now working from home either full time or part time.
Cleaning: We have increase the frequency of cleaning in our offices with particular emphasis on frequently touched surfaces such as doorknobs, light switches, work surfaces etc.
We are in daily contact with our Partners and supply chain to keep apprised of any delays we may face in the coming days and weeks. Internally, we are prioritizing production to best facilitate customer needs. At this time, we have not identified any major delays that will affect our ability to manufacture and ship products. If this changes, we will communicate quickly with impacted parties.
We greatly appreciate all our employees, the work they do and our customers for entrusting us with their business needs. We will be working diligently to minimize any disruptions.
Thank you for your continued business and partnership.
