We hope this finds You, your Employees and Families well in these tough times for our generation. We want to reassure you of Homestead’s ability to care for your critical materials handling needs within our jointly administered access rules.
Our most current status: All Homestead locations are open and staffed. Our Technicians are fully capable and equipped to work in isolated, socially distant areas of your facility within your access rules. We have adapted to all of our customers’ mitigation protocols timely and efficiently. We introduced equipment cleaning mitigation processes being used by several of our customers. We continue to manage fast moving parts stock to reduce impact of potential slower lead times. We maintain routine contact with our major OEM and aftermarket parts distribution sources. All remain open but some lead times have been affected. Our Account Managers are restricted face to face interface with our Customers and to use digital communication means whenever possible. Our Forklift Rental operations have experienced no impact due to the Corona virus.
The impacts are unprecedented and unpredictable. We will continue to evaluate and make necessary changes timely. We appreciate our Partnership and wish you safety and good health as we navigate the challenges together. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact your local branch.
