This is an unprecedented time in the world, as the outbreak of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) threatens our communities, our families and our livelihoods. As we watch the situation unfold around the world, and closer to home here in the United States, our team at Uniphos Envirotronic Inc. wants to assure our valued customers that we’re here for you.
We are all going through this unparalleled crisis together, and we understand how this might be impacting business operations for our customers. Uniphos has restricted travel for all employees and implemented work from home policies in the United States and India for many of our employees. Based on directions of the local Government and to ensure the safety of our employees, we have also decided to suspend all production activities at our factory in Vapi, India until March 29. Unfortunately, this may cause disruptions in the coming weeks. While we still have adequate stocks of most of our detector tubes at our fulfilment centre in Houston, certain part numbers may not be available or may get consumed over the next few weeks.
We commit to providing updates about how these disruptions might impact our customers and encourage you to reach out if you have any questions or would like to place an order. We recognize that in the spirit of business continuity, we all have to persevere and move forward through this difficult time.
At Uniphos, safety has always been a core value. The most important thing in our industry is making sure that everyone gets home safely at the end of the day. Now, with the circumstances as they are, the safety of our employees, our customers and our communities is even more critical.
We encourage you to stay up to date with the evolving crisis by visiting:

- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
- The World Health Organization

Thank you and be safe.
