Reaction to corona virus in the United States

Schmalz is committed to the health and safety of our employees, customers, distributors and suppliers, as well as our community. We are diligently monitoring the COVID-19 situation, and encourage everyone to follow the CDC’s guidelines on travel and other best practices.

We understand that COVID-19 has created tremendous uncertainty and put our generation before a great test. We all therefore share a collective responsibility to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

Although our Company is not planning to close at this time, we are sensitive to the current situation and recognize our need to be responsible in helping to curb the spread of the virus. We are taking additional steps to keep our employees safe while continuing to serve our customers. We are actively monitoring this changing health issue and evaluating our response to it.

In an effort to do our part to slow this illness, we have implemented the following measures:

  • All of our employees are available via email, telephone, web meetings, and or video conferencing and will avoid in-person meetings whenever possible for the foreseeable future 
  • Our office in Raleigh, NC has restricted visitor access, increased preventative measures in-house and is practicing social distancing for those doing minimal staffing in the office 
  • Our Service team will still be available for emergency, line-down situations only and provide service as much as possible via remote support
  • Our supply chain and logistics teams are working non-stop to find alternative supply, or alternative supply routes as needed to access parts not in stock locally

As the situation continues to evolve, more information will be distributed. The management team will meet on a frequent basis to monitor the situation, and take appropriate action.

We are committed to helping our customers continue to operate their businesses during these challenging times and will continue to work non-stop to address each and every challenge as it comes our way.
