March 16, 2020
ALL DURA-LINE GLOBAL LOCATIONS – At Dura-Line, we are prepared to continue all business functions and appreciate the cooperation of our customers and partners in joining with us to follow the recommendations by the Center for Disease Control and World Health Organization.
As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation evolves, we will be monitoring our capabilities and reacting in real-time to make sure we are here supporting our customers and partners.
“During this time of uncertainty created by the Coronavirus pandemic, Dura-Line recognizes the value of a resilient network. Together with our customers and our partners, we have all played a role in building this critical communications infrastructure that has never been more heavily relied upon than it is right now,” President and CEO of Dura-Line Peter Hajdu stated in a customer communication. “Each daily update reinforces that on a global basis we must all continue with our roles in supporting connections between loved ones, enabling remote work, and mission-critical exchange of data that might lead to a cure.”
To help assure we have no interruption to our daily shipments, Dura-Line has implemented the following safety preparedness procedures:
- Every day at each facility and office we are screening each employee’s temperature
- Taking protective measures for interactions with vendors/visitors/deliveries/contractors
- 14-day quarantine for any employee exhibiting symptoms
- Disinfecting areas of high use
- Restricting travel to mission-critical trips
- Remote work, if responsibilities allow
We understand the outbreak has been disruptive to many businesses and we wanted to reassure our customers and partners that steps have been taken at each Dura-Line facility and office around the world to help mitigate exposure to the virus and to keep production running as much like normal as possible.
The health of our employees, customers, and partners are our top priorities as we continue to innovate ways to provide uninterrupted service.
