Continuing operations and our response to COVID-19
Official statement: March 24, 2020
As government leaders from multiple states and local authorities across the U.S. and around the world are ordering their residents to either shelter in place or “stay home, stay safe,” we are providing an update from Hensley.
We continue to work with our global teams, distributors and supply chain partners, and as an essential business, our factories and parts distribution businesses remain open and committed to providing the parts, and services our customers depend on, while prioritizing health and safety measures at our facilities and for our employees worldwide.
As always, our first priority, is the safety and well-being of our employees. Following government and global health organization guidance regarding COVID-19, we have enacted policies that reduce risk for our employees including remote work for all who can, rotating and segregating essential operations and supply shifts, strict travel restrictions, prohibiting visitors to our facilities and supporting quarantine needs.
For our employees who cannot perform their jobs from home, our company is fully complying with all Center for Disease Control (CDC), state, local and best practices for hygiene, social distancing, and protective measures. Only essential manufacturing and logistics technicians are working in our factories – to ensure the flow of essential parts in support of operations globally.
We are working closely with our vendors, suppliers and global leadership to continue to move forward in accordance with our Business Continuity Plans. Meeting customer needs and providing essential support for the construction, and mining industries remain top priorities and we will continue to fulfill our obligations to the best of our ability as we monitor the evolving situation, and communicate and adapt accordingly.
Customers who need additional assistance at this time should contact their Hensley representative or local distributor for direct support.
