Update: All Facilities Are Open

Attention Milamar Customers & Suppliers:

As our Nation unites to minimize the spread of COVID-19, the President issued updated Coronavirus Guidance for Americans on March 16th.  This initiated communication and notifications, including Continuation of Supply Letters from customers who are working on various critical infrastructure projects. Based on these notifications, we are taking the appropriate actions to keep our facilities open to meet your needs.

During these times of uncertainty, our “One Team, One Vision” philosophy carries increased weight and meaning. With you as our valued partner, we make a collective commitment to do our part and ensure that critical infrastructure remains operational both here in the US and throughout the rest of the world.  

We have three (3) manufacturing facilities and two (2) warehouses across the US, giving us a significant amount of flexibility to keep material moving into all markets regardless of geographic region. All of our facilities will remain open and focused on continuing to supply your businesses through this uncharted time.

Rest assured, at The VersaFlex Family of Companies, nothing is more important than our employees’ safety. We are doing everything possible to ensure the well-being of our dedicated staff. This includes allowing our team members who can perform their duties remotely to do so. We will continue to monitor the conditions and communicate with our team and our partners if the situation changes.

Please continue to communicate closely with your sales and customer service representatives about the status of your business. We request that you place your orders with as much advanced notice as possible. This will allow our production facilities and supply chain partners to work in sync to maintain the same level of service you’ve come to expect and enable us to meet your product needs. 

We appreciate the continued notifications from you and your customers regarding your projects that fall under the Federal Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) strategic guidance.

If you have questions, or if you have ideas on how to use our technologies to provide a solution, we will continue to be available 24/7 to assist you.

Everyone at the VersaFlex Family of Companies hope you and your families remain safe and healthy.
