We wanted to let our readers know that Leeco is closely monitoring developments with respect to COVID-19, including information and guidance published by healthcare authorities around the globe.
Leeco is open and maintaining normal operations. To ensure that we can maintain normal operations as the spread of COVID-19 continues, we have activated our business continuity plans, which includes alternate working arrangements, modifications to our warehouse staffing to ensure proper coverage, safe working conditions and a high level of coordination by our management team who are responsible for overseeing our response to the evolving situation.
COVID-19 has not yet impacted Leeco’s ability to meet the steel plate needs of our customers. Each of our main suppliers have indicated they too are addressing the impact of COVID-19 on their business and to date are continuing normal operations. However, we recognize the fluidity of the pandemic and this situation will change day to day.
As we move forward, a commercial disruption of this magnitude may adversely affect product availability, delivery dates and pricing. We are dedicated to minimizing the impact on our customers’ businesses and keeping customers informed of changes in the supply chain as they occur. You can download the official communication that was sent to all customers here.
The unforeseen nature of these events may have a detrimental impact on steel plate prices, and we will notify our customers immediately should a price change be required due to circumstances brought on by COVID-19.
We are so appreciative of our customers and suppliers and are working hard to navigate these challenging times. We are 100% focused on supporting our customers in the coming days and weeks. We will communicate updates to our plans and notify customers of any changes that effect material availability and pricing.
Thank you again,
Denton J. Nordhues
President & CEO
