We want to assure you that we take the health and well-being of our community, customers, and associates very seriously. Like you, we're closely monitoring the quickly developing effects of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we practice social distancing. To accomplish this goal, we have locked down our facilities to protect and care for those who work with us, our customers, and the public. No unauthorized persons are permitted entry at any hour, and anyone who shows symptoms of illness is barred from the premises.
Since Kerley Ink manufactures products directly used in the steel, food packaging and medical packaging industries, our facilities have been designated as essential and therefore need to continue operations. During the course of our participation in nationwide social distancing, Kerley Ink's manufacturing facilities thus remain operational and continue to produce product, albeit at a slower-than-normal pace due to an abundance of caution.
We are all in this together. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and will follow guidance from public health officials and government agencies, so we can continue to support our customers and communities as needed.
