As we work through the challenging COVID-19 situation, our main priority is protecting the health of our employees, while supporting our customers and vendors, and doing our part to help with this unprecedented crisis.
We Are an Essential Business
As an important supplier to medical device manufacturers, we are classified as an essential business. We are currently producing components for many well-known, global medical device manufacturers. Our friction hinges are used in equipment such as ventilators, blood analyzers, ultrasound machines, and cardiac equipment. They are specifically used for positioning displays, control panels, access panels, and covers.
Our Commitment to Our Team
In order to keep our employees and their families safe, we have implemented several measures, such as:
- Making sure a six-foot personal distance is maintained at all times
- Organizing production shifts to limit the amount of people in the factory at any given time
- Sanitizing all touch points throughout the day – disinfecting equipment, door handles, commonly used surfaces, etc.
- Requiring everyone to practice frequent hand washing, wear face masks and avoid touching their face.
Important Note to Suppliers
For our suppliers, we simply ask that you respect our status as an essential business and continue to fill our orders as quickly as possible. Without your support, we might be challenged to play our role to supply our critical customers with the components that they need. If your local government requires any additional documentation, please reach out to us via phone or email. We value all of our supply partners and thank you for cooperating with us.
We look forward to continuing to work with all of you to the best of our ability given the current circumstances. We will share updates to our policy as required via our website. Again, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions.
Please be safe and take all precautions necessary to remain healthy.
