To Our Customers and Partners:
Just as it has for many of you, the spread of COVID-19 has taken center stage at Chase Corporation. We continue to monitor the status of the virus daily with the goal of continuing the supply of products to our customers uninterrupted.
The safety and health of our employees, and our customers and partners, has always been a priority of everything we do, never more so than during this unprecedented virus outbreak.
We are taking all appropriate precautions to address the outbreak within our operations while following guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control. This includes enhanced cleaning procedures in our plants and, to the extent possible, asking our employees to practice social distancing protocols while at work.
Our commitment is to maintain the production and flow of products to our customers as long as practicable, even as we take all appropriate steps to ensure the health and safety of employees and their families. We will continue to follow any protocols, rules or edicts prescribed by local, state and national authorities.
In response to an order issued by Alameda County California health officials, our Newark, California facility has temporarily suspended production and shipments of products. This order, which took effect on March 17th, was not specific to Chase operations; it was directed to all businesses and citizens of Alameda and surrounding counties. For those customers impacted by the temporary suspension, the Order covers the period from March 17th through April 7th, after which we intend to fully resume operations.
Our remaining operations continue to manufacture and ship products to our customers uninterrupted.
We appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this challenging period. Please continue to check our website for any updates on the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak on our operations.
From all of us at Chase Corporation, we appreciate and thank you for your business and wish you well during this difficult period.
