Coronavirus Updates

March 24, 2020 

Dear Valued Perlick Customer:

Perlick is Classified as Essential Manufacturer and Remains Open to Support Your Business

Today, March 24, 2020, the Department of Health Services for the State of Wisconsin issued a Safer at Home Order. The Order requires the closure of all non-essential businesses to help curb the growth of the COVID-19 virus.

Based on government guidelines, Perlick is designated as an essential manufacturer. Perlick provides products and services to essential businesses, operations, and infrastructure projects that are identified in the Order.

While remaining open, we have taken extraordinary actions to protect Perlick factory associates. We have adjusted all workstations to abide by the CDC guidelines to keep a minimum of six feet away from all other colleagues and safely perform job duties.

All office associates will continue to work from home until April 24th (note: this date could change based on COVID-19 updates). Office associates will be online and available during normal Perlick business hours of 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday – Friday.

Thus far our supply chain has not been impacted by COVID-19, and production remains on schedule. While we don’t expect our supply chain will be disrupted in the future, we are working closely with our vendors to determine any potential impacts or delays.

Please note that if we receive a request to cancel or “hold” an order, we will not manufacture the product until the order is reinstated with a new ship date. At the time of reinstatement, current standard lead times will apply. This process allows us to service customers with critical requirements.

Thank you for your business. As a family owned company, Perlick considers our customers part of our family too and we wish you and your colleagues health and well-being during this very fluid and unprecedented situation.

Sincerely,

Jim

Dear Perlick Customer,

Perlick remains committed to the health and safety of our associates and to our business partners like you throughout this unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic. We want to inform you of the steps we are taking to ensure we abide by social distancing guidelines to keep our employees safe, as well as what we are doing to ensure we get your products to you in a timely manner.

  • Our factories are fully functional. We adjusted all workstations to ensure all employees can safely abide by the CDC social guidelines to stay a minimum of six feet away from all colleagues. Due to the safety precautions and measurements we implemented, we do not expect any disruptions in production at this time.
  • Most Perlick office employees are required to work from home, holding all meetings virtually. Most Perlick employees working from home will be available between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CDT, Monday – Friday, keeping Perlick’s traditional work hours
  • Perlick instituted a no visitor policy, thus no partners, clients or customers are allowed in the building starting March 17 and ending on March 27.
    Note: The March 27 date could change pending COVID-19 updates
  • As for any potential supply chain disruptions due to COVID-19, we have been closely monitoring our production for any potential disruptions to our customers. We wanted to let you know that thus far our supply chain has not been impacted by the coronavirus, and production remains on schedule. While we don’t expect our supply chain will be disrupted in the future, we do have a plan in place in case that does happen. We are working closely with our vendors to determine any potential impacts or delays. We realize this situation remains very dynamic. We will continue to monitor the situation and will provide updates if we experience a supply chain disruption that could result in a delay for our customers.

Thank you for all you are doing as a Perlick partner during this very fluid situation. We will continue to keep you updated with any changes.

Thank you,

Jim
