Effective Wednesday March 18 and until further notice, Irwin Industrial will implement a work from home policy for our office personnel. This includes Account Managers, Field Sales and Application Engineering teams, Materials Management and Finance. We have also suspended all non-essential business travel and visitors to our facility.
Our folks in warehouse operations, Quality Assurance, and our mechanical subassembly cells will continue their excellent work on site. Our telecommuting initiative will serve to preserve their health and well being, and we have backup resources established to step in should any of our fulfillment team be required to self-isolate.
Our Materials management team continues to closely monitor our supply lines and at this point we are very comfortable with our position.
We will not be monitoring our switchboard for inbound calls during this time. Should you not have the extension number of the party you wish to contact, please follow the prompts to get to that person. In any case, once you leave a message, it will quickly and automatically be emailed to the recipient as a .WAV file, and we will be back to you promptly. Alternatively, if you don’t know who to contact for your issue you can send an email to email@example.com – that mailbox is monitored by several individuals who will ensure you get the help you need.
We at Irwin wish you and your families all the best. Let’s look after each other.
