As the COVID-19 pandemic spreads, many businesses are being asked to shut down. Through an exemption from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Coatings for Industry is doing its best to continue manufacturing and delivering products. Our customers serve important infrastructure, military and homeland security needs, and we take our responsibility to serve them very seriously.

Protecting Our Employees

Our employees and their families are our first concern. To do our part to help prevent the spread of the virus, we have arranged our work schedules to ensure our people can do their work while maintaining a safe distance from each other. We emphasize handwashing and are sanitizing commonly touched surfaces, equipment and all outbound packaging.

Employees who are able to work from home are doing so, and those who live with at-risk family members have been granted paid leave.

We are also following the restrictions issued by state and local authorities and are continually evaluating our practices as restrictions change.

Protecting Our Customers and Partners

We can’t be sure how long the virus can survive on surfaces, so we are taking a safety-first approach. We are rotating people and hours in our plant, and we are sanitizing everything we touch. We’re doing our best to assure our employees will not spread this troubling disease.

Serving Our Customers

At CFI, we are proud to provide products used in hospitals, fire houses, bridges, power generation, and other infrastructure, as well as for military and homeland security needs. All are critical to our country’s continued safe operation. We are doing our best to continue serving those customers in this unique time.

The COVID-19 situation is uncharted territory for us all and it’s changing daily. We cannot guarantee new developments or restrictions won’t affect our ability to remain operational, but we are committed to making every effort to meet our customers’ needs. Just as important, we will do what is right for the health and safety of the people both inside and outside of our company.

If you have any questions or concerns about product availability, shipping times, and sanitization practices, please contact us.

Thank you for your loyalty and understanding. Please stay safe.
