Hello from your friends at Huttig. We hope that you, your families, and your businesses are doing well and have found positive ways to navigate our unusual circumstances.
Since our last communication, Huttig has constantly monitored developments and recommendations in each of the markets in which we operate and serve. Our primary concern continues to be the health and safety of our employees, customers, suppliers, and all those that help us to be successful each day.
We are encouraged by the recognition of construction and the building materials industry as essential to the well-being of our society. So many of our customers and suppliers have gone above and beyond to help their communities during these challenging times.
Each of our 27 locations continues to be fully operational, receiving, shipping, and delivering building materials while adhering to rigorous safety policies in accordance with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control, the World Health Organization, and local guidelines.
Huttig outside and inside sales teams and other non-operation staff are working remotely, but are just a text, e-mail or phone call away. We expect this to be in place through at least June 1, 2020, when we will reevaluate the situation and determine next steps.
Looking forward, a number of states have announced that they will begin to ease shelter in place restrictions over the next few weeks. Huttig Sales Representatives in jurisdictions that have lifted their state and local stay-at-home mandates will continue to work from home unless there is an immediate issue that cannot be resolved other than with a personal visit. In such case please contact your Huttig rep to discuss a potential visit. Huttig will continue to take an extremely cautious position as the landscape and the environment change, and we will reevaluate the situation as we progress through May. We have developed a strict protocol that must be adhered to in the best interest of protecting our employees and our customers alike.
Stay Safe, Stay Strong and Be Well,
Your Huttig Team
