A NOTICE TO OUR CUSTOMERS REGARDING THE COVID-19 VIRUS:
The situation with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve rapidly. Global markets are reacting, and nations, government leaders, and companies across the globe have instituted a variety of policies to help mitigate the spread of the virus.
The Department of Defense has deemed Amptec Research Corp. to be a part of the Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce, and as such we intend to keep our facility open and maintain standard business operations for as long as possible. As your partner in the intrinsically safe electronics supply chain, our office and employees have refined and accelerated our business continuity plans as well. We are taking proactive measures focused on the well-being of our employees and on delivering the products and services our customers need.
Our current plan is this: We have directed a portion of our workforce to work remotely. In addition, we have made scheduling changes for our technical staff that cannot work from home to ensure we are following CDC guidelines regarding the maximum number of people that should be in one group setting. We have also made physical organizational changes to separate working employees to provide for more social distancing. Lastly, employees at our facility have been provided with safety equipment and all areas are being disinfected on a regular basis.
Amptec Research has proudly been supporting the needs of our clients for over 2 decades with a staff of less than 20 individuals. However, this means that if any one of our employees that regularly visits our facility tests positive for the Coronavirus, we may have to temporarily halt all operations for a period of two weeks or more. This is a last resort measure that we hope does not come to pass and is the final step in our contingency plans.
Unfortunately, as is the nature of business in this unprecedented event, our product lead times and pricing may increase. If you are an existing customer with a current order placed, we will contact you the moment we feel unable to meet your scheduled delivery date.
We are proactively evolving our action plans in the event the Coronavirus becomes more widespread and will continue to update you as the situation changes. In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss any concerns you may have regarding your specific needs.
From all of us at Amptec Research, we wish you good health in these trying times.
President & CEO
Amptec Research Corp.
