Message from the CEO and President

Concerns for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) are valid, but they are cause for us to be prepared, not frightened. As a global organization with operations in the Americas, Europe and Asia Pacific, we recognize this is not a casual experience we are living through; however, it deserves a calm versus panicked response, and rational thought.

The safety, health and overall well-being of our employees is our top priority. We work together, we thrive together, and we win together. We are taking precautions by continuously engaging in recommended actions and updating our global workforce with relevant information on preventative measures to avoid spreading or contracting the virus.

In business for over 55 years, we’ve witnessed many business disruptions. Our innovative, smart and committed teams have ensured our sustainability and growth. While we value the health of our organization, we value even more the health of our teams, families and communities. Practice great sanitary precautions and remember: Together… We Win!

COVID-19 Pandemic

The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the Coronavirus a pandemic on March 11, 2020, and the CDC has confirmed that the Coronavirus has begun widespread ongoing transmission in countries around the world, including in the United States.

Our Response

Employees working in a location where a legal stay at home order exists are encouraged to work from home as much as possible. For those areas where a stay at home orders exist and employees are still allowed in the office, we wish for their presence in their locations to be brief, in an effort to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Staying Safe

The CDC recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases such as Coronavirus, including:

  • Stay home as much as possible.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Put distance between yourself and other people.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.

The CDC currently recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g. grocery stores and pharmacies) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.
