COVID-19 Update - March 24

March 24, 2020

The continuing rapid spread of COVID-19 in the U.S. and around the world is posing many challenges for businesses, and Vollrath is no exception. We are doing everything we can to manage this fluid situation by taking care of our stakeholders and ensuring the long-term viability of our business.

As we learned, Vollrath has been designated as an “Essential Business” in Emergency Order #12 (Section R) “Safer at Home” issued by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services and is thus allowed to continue to operate. Since most of our manufacturing locations and main distribution center are in Wisconsin, we wanted to ensure you that at this time we will remain open and prepared to fulfill your orders during this critical time period.

We take our responsibility very seriously as a manufacturer of equipment and tools that are widely used for preparation and serving of food in restaurants and hotels, but right now more importantly in other industries that are essential to the public like healthcare, government, military and correctional facilities.

Vollrath continues to observe the recommendations that are in place, including having employees work and conduct meetings remotely when possible, prohibiting all non-essential business travel and encouraging people to stay at home if they feel unwell.

We keep monitoring updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services and will closely follow their recommendations to keep our employees, clients, carriers and community safe.
