To our valued customers and partners:
Meridian Adhesives Group is continuing to closely follow the unfolding COVID-19 outbreak. We are dedicated to remaining a trusted supplier during this unsteady market. Thursday, March 19, California officials announced an order for citizens to shelter at home. At this time, all Meridian Adhesives Group manufacturing sites fall under the chemical manufacturing sector definition, including our sites located in California, and as such will continue operations under the Cyber and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) guidance as for essential critical infrastructure work.
As this is an ever-evolving situation, we will be carefully tracking our supply for any possible material shortages or interruptions related to COVID-19 and the new California regulations. At this time, we have not experienced any disruptions that are impacting our ability to maintain your supply. However, we will proactively connect with customers in the event we anticipate a supply disruption may affect our ability to deliver.
While fulfilling customer needs is at the forefront of our contingency planning in the midst of COVID-19, it is important to note that the welfare of our employees and customers is paramount. We have taken additional steps to ensure we are carefully adhering to CDC guidelines in our manufacturing sites and headquarters. We have created guidelines for our employees to minimize potential exposure, and we are carefully planning ahead for any possible disruptions due to the virus.
Thank you for your trust in us as we navigate this situation together.
Daniel Pelton, CEO
