Dear Valued Customers,
As we continue to deal with the situation presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to assure you, as a valued customer, that Beckett Corporation continues to be well-positioned to provide the products you’ve come to count on from us.
Our top priority remains the health and safety of our customers, our employees and our partners. Our work-from-home policy remains in place despite recent relaxation of state-mandated shutdowns. All travel is halted and we are using videoconferencing to maintain contact with you and our suppliers.
Our China factory, Beckett Industries China, has been in full production since mid-February and we have encountered no Covid-19 illness among our staff to date. Our local suppliers are also up and running and providing materials as required. We have instituted as many health and safety measures as possible, including daily temperature testing, required wearing of masks, and wide distribution of sanitizers. Unless the Chinese government imposes “force majeure” or other limitations in our ability to get employees to work, we are working full time to meet our 2020 production demands and prepare for 2021 forecasts.
As an essential infrastructure provider, our Norfolk, Virginia warehouse facility has remained open and fully operational throughout. We are C-TPAT certified at the Port of Virginia and have seen close to normal throughput of containers from the port to our facility.
Our inventory levels are steady and we anticipate no significant shortages of products. Any information about your future demands for product and services for 2020 and 2021 would be greatly appreciated.
We will update you as needed and we encourage you to contact us should you have any questions.
The Beckett Corporation Team
