As a global entity with locations in over 50 countries around the world, ARDEX is acutely aware of the far-reaching impact being felt by the spread of COVID-19. Through these concerning days, the health and well-being of our customers and our partners, as well as our employees and their families are foremost in our minds. We have taken precautionary actions to prevent the introduction of this virus into our facilities and will continue to follow the recommendations made by health officials to protect our customers, partners and employees.
At ARDEX Americas, contingency plans are in place to address potential issues across all our operations. As circumstances change, we continuously review and shift our planning to best serve our customers. At present, all ARDEX Americas manufacturing locations are open and running normal operations. The ARDEX office and sales teams are also fully engaged, however, in deference to precaution may shift face-to-face meetings to electronic communication where it makes sense. Requirements to mitigate this threat can change daily, and we will endeavor to keep you updated in a timely manner should the situation change within our organization.
On behalf of our entire team, we wish each of you good health and look forward to being here to serve you in the days ahead.
