COVID-19: How Factory Five is Responding

I have two priorities here at Factory Five. The first one is to protect the health and safety of our employees and customers. The second one is to protect the long term financial health of our company. This virus brings with it a tremendous amount of uncertainty. So in the face of everything we know, and everything we don’t know, here is what we’re doing.

We have decided not to allow tours or visitors here at Factory Five for at least the next two weeks and perhaps longer. Customer pick-ups are allowed, but have to be scheduled in advance. Saturday tours are cancelled. This is frustrating as our new showroom is complete, but it is done in the best interest of our customer’s health and that of our team.

We have allowed as many people to work from home as possible, and have initiated extreme contact pre-cautions here at work. We have hand sanitizer throughout the building, we are cleaning the contact surfaces in the building four times a day minimum, and our crew is limiting movement inside the building to workstations and their cars. The break room is closed.

All suppliers, shipping companies, and outside reps are directed to the rear entrance where they have to remain (hand sanitizer provided). Access to the building is strictly controlled.

We will obviously be following CDC guidelines as well as state and federal regulations.

Right now, our manufacturing operations are running, and shipping is functioning well. If at any time in the future we are unable to proceed or are forced to shut down temporarily, we will communicate this immediately.
