The health and safety of our employees is our number one priority. Without our incredible staff, we would be unable to support the global needs for products. We have taken careful steps to educate our employees on the recommended measures to limit the spread of infectious diseases, following guidance from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and federal, state and local governments. Any employee who may have symptoms is advised to follow CDC guidelines, including self-quarantine, and consult with a medical professional. We have restricted all non-essential business travel throughout the world and are requiring employees who travel to follow CDC quarantine and social distancing guidelines upon return.
To meet the unprecedented demand for GCX solutions, we are maintaining manufacturing at all of our build warehouses. Only employees essential to production are on-site and we are taking all measures to meet CDC guidelines. Along with regular deep cleaning of our facilities, we have taken measures to support social distancing such as the removal of all doors within the facility. All other employees are working remotely, equipped with the tools to continue to support the business. Our Regional Sales Managers, who regularly work remotely, are limiting their in-person interactions and using alternative approaches to continue providing the high-quality service you have come to expect from GCX.
We have adjusted our operations to make the most significant impact we can on the global fight against the virus — by supplying the products needed to diagnose and treat patients affected by COVID-19. Additionally, we have partnered with our supply base, as essential businesses, to maintain operations and prioritize GCX demand to support the products needed on the front lines. Internally, we have cross-trained our employees from non-production roles to the assembly floor and opened additional assembly lines targeted to COVID-specific products in order to increase output. We are actively doing whatever we can to support our customer’s demand.
Thank you for your cooperation, understanding and continued trust in GCX. We are honored to serve alongside the dedicated and hard-working individuals among the global healthcare community.
