Dear American Nameplate Co. Customers,
The governor of Illinois has declared a “shelter-in-place” for businesses in the State of Illinois. This action will not affect our normal operations as we supply many product manufacturers that are considered “Essential Business” and require our products to continue operating. We will continue to work hard to ensure that all orders are completed as expected and shipped to your facilities in a timely manner. We do not anticipate any disruption of shipments over the next few weeks, although, things can change very quickly. Any anticipated no-shipment will be announced, lead times/confirmed dates may extend due to the nature of the environment we are currently in.
We appreciate your continued support through this time, and please contact us if there are any questions or concerns. As we move through this difficult time we will continue to operate as we have over the past 86 years.
From everyone here at American Nameplate Co., we hope all of our customers and their employees & families keep well during this trying time.
In light of the recent concerns surrounding COVID-19, American Nameplate has been working hard with various companies to to keep up with the supply and demand of many products including: health and safety products.
Many Chinese factories have temporarily closed, essentially cutting off that supply chain from the world. According to BBC News, “Chinese manufacturing hit a record low amid coronavirus outbreak as of February 29, 2020. The country’s official measure of manufacturing activity – the Purchasing Manager’s Index (PMI) – dropped to 35.7 from 50 in January.”
Manufacturing nameplate components for sanitizing products is at an all time high as companies are scrambling to fulfill orders and keep the shelves stocked. Many public transportation companies, such as our local CTA here in Chicago, has doubled up on sanitation processes, while carefully monitoring the information from the CDC, and World Health Organization.
American Nameplate is working in full force to fulfill production deadlines and quote new parts. Contact one of our nameplate specialists today to discuss your custom made nameplates, labels, and decals.
