CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE

TO OUR EMPLOYEES, CUSTOMERS & INDUSTRY PARTNERS:

As we monitor this ever-changing situation, we are focused on the health and safety of our employees and their families, our customers and our mission-critical work.

I wanted to brief you on our current ongoing initiatives:

OPERATIONS:

• Trumbauersville, Pennsylvania and Suzhou, China are in operation as well as our supply chains (raw materials to finishing) are supporting us in these regions.
• Our office and suppliers in India are on a 3-week mandated closure.
• Inventories are being evaluated and monitored daily, strategically updating for the upcoming months, communicating to the appropriate individuals

SUPPORT:

• Our leadership team meets daily and continues to adjust schedules and procedures to improve operations in the best interest of our team.
• We are enhancing our protocols and preventive measures to minimize the chance of exposure to the COVID-19 virus.
• We have staggered shifts to minimize the number of employees in specific areas

We continue to follow CDC’s orders and will remain in constant communication with our team, our customers and our vendors.
