Dear Valued Brooks Customer,
As the world is struggling with the unprecedented health crisis that is unfolding with the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) our hearts go out to all who have been affected by this situation. You may be aware that in the past few weeks Brooks has taken a series of precautionary steps in response to this crisis.
Brooks top priority is and always will be safety. It is our responsibility to prioritize the health and safety of our employees and customers above all else. We are currently following the guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), and state and local agencies and have implemented a series of measures to protect our employees and customers. To that end we have taken all appropriate, known actions to address the COVID-19 threat.
We continue to operate at full capacity, providing all customers with on-time delivery of product. Brooks continues to work closely with our own suppliers to assess potential risks and can share that our supply chain has not been impacted thus far and should be able to continue providing material to support your needs. We encourage you to evaluate your own supply chain and look to Brooks for additional product needs where supply chain disruptions may be taking hold.
We’ve all seen the unprecedented government mandated shutdowns of San Francisco and New York. Similar actions could impact product delivery temporarily. With the uncertainty posed by government intervention on other industries it remains a guess as to whether our state (Michigan) will force a mandatory, temporary shut-down to aid in containment of COVID-19. With that possibility in mind we encourage you to consider stocking product now to avoid potential disruption in the immediate and foreseeable future.
We remain steadfast in our commitment to servicing you and will keep you apprised of our efforts related to COVID-19. Thank you for your continued support of our organization.
