Open for Business

Posted on Mar 25, 2020

Yes, we are open for business.

This week the state of Wisconsin issued a “Safer at Home” order, requiring the closure of all non-essential businesses.

What does this mean for Steel King and its customers?

Our Wisconsin manufacturing facilities:
As a critical supplier to many Essential Businesses, including companies that produce or distribute medical equipment including ventilators, pharmaceuticals, food, groceries, and defense products, Steel King, too, is considered an Essential Business.

Our Wisconsin plants in New London and Stevens Point will remain operating.

Our Georgia manufacturing facilities:
The City of Rome, GA, has also issued a “Stay at Home” order. However, Steel King’s Georgia facility is also exempted as an Essential Business.

Therefore, we will also remain operating in Rome.

In addition, Steel King has seen little disruption in our supply chain.

During this time, we also have a responsibility to support our communities, the healthcare providers who are on the front lines of this pandemic, and other essential operations, and we are proud to do our part.

To ensure that the health and safety of our employees and partners are not compromised, we will continue to monitor the situation closely and respond to this rapidly-evolving situation as needed.

At this time, we are suspending all non-critical business travel and events, as well as visits from others to our own facilities, in order to do our part to help slow the spread of this virus. We have also directed all Steel King employees who are able to work from home to do so.

PRODUCTION:

  • At present we are continuing to operate all plants on regular full shift schedules, following all guidelines indicated by the CDC.
  • Our purchasing team is in constant contact with our key suppliers to monitor product availability and identify backup sources.

CUSTOMER SALES / SERVICE:

    • We have procedures in place to handle client calls, emails, orders remotely.
    • Members of our Inside Sales team will be working remotely and will continue to be available to support your needs during regular business hours. If you need to reach them via phone, please use the direct dial numbers listed here.  DO NOT USE the regular 800 number.
