A Message from our President Tom Wendt: Navigating COVID-19

As the news about COVID-19 (coronavirus) and its unprecedented effects evolves, we’re learning that being informed and prepared are essential. Thus, we are closely monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak according to the guidelines and recommendations of the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and taking the necessary steps to ensure the health and safety of our customers, colleagues and employees.

As this is an emerging, rapidly changing situation, I wanted to personally reach out to you and provide an update on the actions that WENDT is taking to help protect our employees and customers.

Starting tomorrow, we will be maximizing social distancing by instituting a work-from-home policy for a significant number of our employees. Anyone working from home is equipped with the technology and tools to fulfill operational capabilities remotely, including resources to host virtual meetings.

This is an extension of our business travel restriction, which includes all unnecessary travel. The same level of high-quality productivity will be achieved virtually by hosting regularly scheduled meetings to meet deadlines.

Staff essential for operational and production needs will remain in place. With a fully functional customer support team, there are no current changes in our shipping and logistics capabilities. We will also be closely monitoring our supply chain. Our goal remains to continue providing our customers with the products and services they need to stay productive.

WENDT CORPORATION is committed to maintaining a safe and healthy workplace for our employees while also providing our customers with the high level of service they are used to. We appreciate your understanding that, as a customer, your WENDT experience, may look a little different as we navigate this time together. Rest assured, even with the changes in place, WENDT is prepared to sustain operations now and over the long-term. We are committed to delivering the exceptional products and service you expect and that we’ve upheld for the past 43 years.

Our senior leadership team will continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic daily and communicate with you on any additional changes that may occur. We are doing our best navigate this evolving situation and appreciate the trust that you place in WENDT CORPORATION. We will take any additional actions necessary to protect our employees and customers while continuing to provide the services you need to run your business.

Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions on the policies we’ve put into place.
