Dear Valued Customer:
First, let me begin by wishing you all the best during this unprecedented time. All of us at ESG hope you, your families and all your colleagues are safe and healthy during this very challenging situation.
At ESG, we recognize that many of our customers directly support first responders, as well as private and government agencies that are directly responsible for not only keeping us safe, but also for maintaining our national infrastructure.
ESG’s facilities manufacture equipment for police vehicles, fire trucks, ambulances, shuttle buses, school buses, transportation vehicles and infrastructure work trucks that come under the CISA’s (U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency’s) Critical Infrastructure Sectors, including Critical Manufacturing, Emergency Services and Transportation Systems Sectors. As a result, our facilities will remain open during the COVID-19 pandemic until further notice.
At ESG, we are closely monitoring recommendations from the CDC as well as the WHO to ensure the safety of our team members, their families, our customers and partners. Currently many functions at ESG are working remotely, but still committed to taking care of our customers. At the same time, we have implemented measures in both our facilities in Boise, ID and St. Louis, MO to keep our staff safe. Extra procedures for cleaning and hygiene have been taken, as well as measures that allow our teams to practice “social distancing” while in the workplace.
To assure a continuity in our products, we are working with our suppliers to maintain a consistent flow of raw material and components. We will continue to work diligently to maintain the products needed by you, our customer, to serve these key support segments during this difficult time. Our dedicated teams will continue to work to service your needs.
We appreciate your support during this difficult time. Please know that we are here to serve you in any capacity possible.
With my very best regards,
John Ducharme President, ESG Americas
