(March 19, 2020 — Kings Park, NY) —
To Our Valued Customers, Manufacturing Partners and Service Providers,
There is no higher priority than the health and well-being of our employees. Effective today, with the growing concerns about the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we are taking additional safety measures to protect our employees, their families and their communities. As a result, we have made the decision to close all Dejana facilities effective today, Tuesday, March 17th, with the hopes of reopening with full operations on Monday, March 30th.
Our outside sales representatives and their internal support teams will be unaffected and operating “business as usual” during this time.
Effective immediately, we are deploying a “work from home” strategy for our employees who have customer facing, or functional responsibilities. Over the next several days departments such as inside sales, estimating, bailment and order processing, will have access to our network and fully functional while working from home. This will ensure that we can continue to provide our customers with the highest level of support during this challenging time.
Sr. Vice President
Dejana Truck & Utility Equipment Co.
