As we continue to work through the coronavirus event, we want each of you to know that nothing is more important to us than the safety and well being of our associates and your families. Each of you should know that we are taking all of the necessary steps to ensure safe environments throughout our system. Altec has a management task force team monitoring the situation on a minute-by-minute basis and they are tracking information being shared by public health agencies along with the best practices being shared among our suppliers, customers and peer manufacturers.
We recognize the hardships that these circumstances have created for everyone. Many Altec associates have been asked to work remotely in response to the recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control to help slow the spread of COVID-19. We understand that some of you may have a sense of isolation as public health officials ask that we distance ourselves from others. While you work remotely in continued support of our customers, we encourage you to stay connected with Altec teammates and co-workers as well as your loved ones. Other associates, due to your roles and responsibilities, have been asked to continue to work on-site which has allowed us to keep our operations running to continue to serve our customers. In many instances, you have been asked to flex hours, adjust your work conditions and maintain social distancing. Again, all of this is being asked of you in an effort to minimize the spread of the virus. We greatly appreciate everyone’s flexibility and understanding as we continue to implement these recommended guidelines to keep associates safe.
Altec will continue to monitor this ever-changing situation and we thank you — our dedicated team members — for your vigilance and your efforts to keep yourselves and those around you safe. In addition, we deeply appreciate your on-going commitment to serve and support our customers, for whom the livelihoods of all of us depend.
At Altec, we remain convinced and confident that this crisis will pass, our nation will remain resilient and our company will emerge stronger and more successful. Thank you for all you do for Team Altec!
