Concord American Flagpole understands the concern and uncertainty surrounding Coronavirus (COVID-19) and would like to take this opportunity to update our customers with the steps being taken in response to the evolving situation.
In order to protect the health of our employees, customers, and communities from the impacts of the Coronavirus, we have enacted an employee travel restriction until 3/27/20. Due to the dynamic changes in this outbreak, we will continue to monitor this policy and may enact further restrictions and/or policies to protect the company and its employees.
Regarding our supply chain, our CAFP Supply Chain Team has been operating in a proactive capacity to negate potential threats of supply disruptions by the virus. Preemptive plans were in place, and they have been monitoring the supply lines closely, utilizing our diversified supply chain to mitigate delays. The situation is currently very fluid and as it develops they will continue to adjust accordingly to best serve our customer’s needs.
We want to give you the utmost assurance that all measures will be taken to diminish the effects of this virus on our operations. We are doing everything possible to ensure our supply chain delivers items on-time and complete. We have identified a limited number of accessories that could experience longer lead times. To aid in minimizing inventory and stocking delays, we ask that orders be placed as early as possible to allow for any delays in freight and logistics transit times for both incoming and outgoing product.
During this time, we recognize reliable information is more important than ever and will be providing periodic updates as we closely monitor changes. We appreciate your support and look forward to continuing to serve you.
