At JW Aluminum, the safety and well-being of our teammates, customers and suppliers always comes first. We have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic with a dedicated team. We are taking the necessary precautions and preventative measures recommended by subject matter experts and government officials to help keep everyone, at all our operations, safe and healthy.
As an aluminum processor, JW Aluminum is considered part of the critical manufacturing sector defined by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, part of the Department of Homeland Security. Both the President and this agency have requested that essential critical infrastructure workers continue to work and produce materials essential to supply chains that are crucial to the economic prosperity and continuity of the United States.
Because federal government officials have requested that workers in critical manufacturing sectors like ours continue operations, JW Aluminum has notified the Governors in the states where we operate of our exemption status so we can continue to supply our customers who also work in critical manufacturing sectors.
In addition to practicing hand and cough and sneeze hygiene, the most important thing we are asking everyone to remember is:
In our industries, we have faced adverse circumstances and prevailed. We thank all of you for your continued commitment during these extraordinarily unprecedented times.
Here is a detailed list of the COVID-19 prevention measures currently in place at JW Aluminum:
