COVID-19 Virus Update: Manufacturing Will Continue
The Vip Rubber & Plastic offices will remain open during this global crisis, fully dedicated to getting you the parts you need.
To Our Global Family,
We will remain open, manufacturing will continue. There will be no impact to our on time performance.
As we continue to manufacture, we want all of our customers, vendors, employees, and friends to know we have dedicated ourselves to extreme virus prevention and safety in all departments. We certainly understand the severity of this situation and the delicate balance of protecting our employees as we continue to manufacture the parts our customers need. We are continually adapting our internal procedures to meet the needs of the entire Vip family. Your safety is paramount and is our highest priority.
We consider our customers to be part of our family. And as such, our hearts go out to anyone who is suffering, in any way, from this virus. As a company, we have implemented a stringent safety protocol to provide multiple layers of protection for our customers. Our commitment to consistently cleaning and sanitizing machines, materials, and workstations will help to eliminate potential risks. Also, our employees are adhering to procedures to keep everyone safe as they prepare, manufacture, and ship your products as scheduled.
The most effective way to minimize the risk of the virus’s transmission is to adhere to the idea of social distancing. We ask that our customers and employees postpone any nonessential on-site meetings, or move to a virtual platform. We have specific technology in place to meet your needs via phone, email, and video conferencing. If an in-person meeting is necessary, we have steps in place to ensure everyone’s safety. We ask that recent travel history be discussed, handshaking eliminated, and of course, handwashing, which is one of the most effective defenses against virus spread.
We will continue to quote projects, receive new and repeat orders, and manufacture just like we have since 1961. We are in constant communication with our supply chain to stay ahead of any potential changes that may affect our manufacturing process. As of today, our vendors are operating at a high-level capacity. They are successfully responding to this fluid situation with strength and commitment. You can trust that Vip is manufacturing products as scheduled and shipping on time.
Our network of vendors is doing a remarkable job of providing Vip with the necessary materials and supplies needed to avoid any interruption in manufacturing. We are grateful to them for their consistency and dedication. Anyone delivering materials to Vip will follow the upgraded protocol in place, which includes handwashing and sanitizing when entering the premises. Soap, water, and sanitizing products are readily accessible at all points of entry, including shipping and receiving. We ask that on-site vendor interaction be limited as much as possible. Communication will remain a high priority as we use virtual platforms to stay connected.
Our employees are the heartbeat of our company, and we are doing everything we can to keep them safe and healthy. We believe in a calm, and rational response threaded with common sense and wisdom. We will follow the recommendations of the CDC internally by asking our employees to take their temperatures and refrain from coming to work if a fever, or cough, is present. All employees have access to handwashing stations and ample sanitizing products. Also, our offices are consistently being cleaned and disinfected to ensure a clean work environment. As a company, we will do everything possible to protect and support our employees.
As this situation evolves, we will adapt. In our 60 years of manufacturing, we have weathered many storms, and we will do it again. Vip is a reliable and stable company that is ready to meet adversity with wisdom. In the words of Henry Ford, “Before everything else, getting ready is the secret of success.” We are ready.
