SEA Wire and Cable’s mission is to take care of our customers, partners, employees, stakeholders and the warfighter one connection at a time. With that in mind, we would like to assure you that SEA has taken extraordinary measures to ensure that your supply chain will not be affected due to the COVID-19 pandemic:
- SEA will remain open for the duration of the spread of COVID-19. Currently, SEA does not have any employees that have tested positive for COVID-19.
- All non-operations-based employees will have the option to work from home until further notice. This will include all sales, support and other similar positions where a physical presence within our walls is not required. Your calls and ability to reach each of these employees will not be negatively affected.
- We temporarily moved to a 2-shift operation for our employees tied to operations. Due to schools and other work-related scheduling issues, we are offering our employees the opportunity to work either shift they need to in order to more easily fit employment into their schedule. This reduced the amount of staff we had out at one time and ensure on-time shipments for our customers. The 2-shift operation concluded at the beginning of June to resume normal operations, but we continue to monitor the situation and stand ready to move back if the need arises.
- SEA began screening all non-employees requesting access to our facility mid-March. This will remain in place for the foreseeable future.
- SEA imposed a ban on all employees traveling due to work-related activities. Upon returning from any personal-related travel all employees will be required to adhere to a mandatory quarantine before returning to work.
- SEA is pulling and working orders ahead of schedule in order to minimize any unforeseen impact on staff levels in the future due to possibility of spread of infection.
- SEA has no shortage of products and has a healthy amount of inventory on backorder that is scheduled to come in to regularly replenish inventory levels.
- SEA will continue to monitor and update our customers on upward supply chain potential disruptions. See below link with regularly updated supplier status information.
We began reaching out to our suppliers mid-February and continue to do so on a regular basis for feedback on potential supply chain disruptions. Updated information on our supplier status can be found in the link below. We understand that this is a fluid situation that changes constantly. We assure you that we will pass along any changes in our ability to support your business immediately.
We thank you for your understanding and trust to keep your business running smoothly during this challenging time. As states begin to open back up, further details emerge and constraints evolve, we will communicate them immediately.
