As the situation surrounding Coronavirus (COVID-19) is changing rapidly, this is an unprecedented time for everyone. The health and safety of our customers and team members is our top priority. We are taking steps to increase our vigilance, while doing our best to be here for you as much or as little as you need. We know your livelihood depends on us and we have moved quickly to ensure there isn't any interruption in serving you. Our entire company is here to help you.
First, we are monitoring the guidance of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Protection (CDC) guidelines and recommendations on the actions we can take to help prevent the spread of the virus.
We also recognize that continuity of supply is a concern for our customers. As part of regular business activities, We work directly with our manufacturers to ensure continuity of the supply chain. Our demand planning team maintains significant safety stock on high moving items. As of today, we are not experiencing any non-routine outages. Our team is developing alternative sources of supply should the situation change. In the event we need to consider alternative manufacturers, we will work directly with our customers to recommend alternatives.
You and your employees are on the front lines of many of the new guidelines and bans being instituted across the country. We understand what a trying time this must be for your business. We have always been there for you and our commitment stands strong now more than ever.
