COVID-19 has exploded to a global pandemic. Large populations are confined to their homes to slow the spread of the disease. Local businesses have been strongly affected, working with reduced staff and hours, or closing their doors entirely under the recommendation or direct order of local governments.
Clayton Industries is no exception. We received numerous questions and comments regarding our operation at this time, especially since our Head Office is located in Los Angeles, California, which is currently under a State of Emergency due to a major American outbreak of COVID-19.
At the time of this writing, Clayton Industries remains open. The State of California has declared Clayton to be an essential service because of the support we provide to numerous healthcare, pharmaceutical, and food processing facilities. Our service team will remain fully active during the COVID-19 outbreak to keep your facility up and running. We are fully prepared to cooperate with any visitation policies implemented by local governments or the personal preference of facility management.
Clayton continues to provide these services to our customers and partners around the world. Priority is given to other businesses that remain open as essential services. Our factories continue to produce and ship boilers and replacement parts. Our Water Treatment Division is still providing service to our customers and our Sales Team remains active and prepared to assist as always. For questions, please contact your local Sales or Service Representative.
We made some temporary changes to our offices. Like most businesses, we implemented a work from home policy to all employees who are able to do so. For those who are unable, we are enforcing preventive measures to help slow the spread of COVID-19, including the use of PPE, maintaining reasonable distances, and practicing high levels of cleanliness.
We wish you all the best during these tumultuous times. Stay safe and healthy.
John Clayton, President
