We have been closely monitoring the changing situation regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and wanted to update you on what we are doing to mitigate risk and ensure less disruption to our customers’ baghouse operations.
Our TWO filter media manufacturing plants are CURRENTLY fully operational and capable of producing the same high-quality filter bag products to lessen any potential risks to you.
At this time we do not see any impact on our supply chain for filter media or with the producers for fibers, wovens, and chemicals. We are in constant contact with our supply chain as they continue to closely monitor the producers of fibers and wovens in Asia and here in the USA and are keeping fully abreast of the latest information.
Employee Health & Well-being – Focus on Social Distancing
We have been re-configuring work flows to ensure social distancing. Cleanings for our facilities have been ramped-up and lunch times staggered, again to focus on social distancing and ensuring that we follow recommended practices from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) for a healthy and safe workplace at this time of uncertainty.
We want to ensure that you and your team are covered and you have the necessary filter bags, cages & venturis and baghouse parts & accessories on-hand to meet your needs, especially if longer lead times do come into play based on changes in our supply chain. As you know, we have worked very hard to ensure short lead times on our high-quality filter bags so that your baghouse operation will remain up and running.
While we can’t predict the future, we can do everything in our powers to minimize and mitigate potential impacts on your baghouse operations.
Contact us and please let us know how we can help you with ensuring a smart inventory of filter bags & parts. At SFM, we are committed to your success and to your peace-of mind.
