SM Cyclo of Canada, Ltd. (SMC) Coronavirus Update
SM Cyclo of Canada, Ltd. remains Open for Business and committed to our employees, our customers, and our communities. We’re closely monitoring the situation and following guidance from public health officials and government agencies, including the World Health Organization. We would like to express our gratitude for all local, provincial, and federal officials, as well as those in health care who are all working diligently to contain the virus. As a result of recent government guidelines, we are taking immediate action to help mitigate the risk of spreading this virus.
As everyone is aware, the Coronavirus situation continues to evolve daily. We understand the gravity of the pandemic and continue to take every precaution possible to ensure the safety and well-being of our employees and our communities while keeping our many customers operational.
We continue to follow the procedures to protect our employees. To date, we have had no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in any of our facilities across North and South America. We are incredibly grateful for the commitment our employees have to serve our customers and to keep our country running. For all employees, we continue to be flexible, continue to focus on prevention, and continue to encourage them to stay at home if they are not feeling well.
Through this time of tremendous uncertainty, we remain positive and steadfast in our approach to this crisis. We have a reliable supply chain, a robust stocking strategy, and a talented production and procurement team. We continue to build and ship products with little to no delay, and we will utilize all resources at our disposal for our customers' needs.
As a global company, we are closely monitoring our supply chain and taking every action to minimize disruption. Our current inventory levels remain strong, and our supply chain remains in-tact. As our Asian factories have come back online after government restrictions have been lifted, we have begun to see operations normalize. We expect this progress to continue as governments around the world work diligently to safeguard their people, contain the virus, and restart businesses.
We understand the Coronavirus situation is top of mind for all of us right now. As a company critical to supporting those industries working to keep our economies operating, we are committed to persevering for their sake. As circumstances continue to change, our goal is and will continue to be able to provide quality gearboxes worldwide and keep our employees safe and healthy.
