To our valued customers,
As you are likely aware, the Coronavirus Disease 2019 is a global health concern and Beacon takes its position as a leader in the building materials industry very seriously. The health and safety of our employees, customers and communities is of paramount concern to us. As a result, we feel that it is important to inform our customers about the steps we are taking to minimize the impact on all of our stakeholders.
We believe the most reliable source of information can be found at The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This government resource provides valuable, up to date information on the progress of the virus as well as measures you can take to protect yourself.
Beacon Building Products Actions
We have established a team to monitor the situation and determine what actions need to be taken to protect our employees, customers and the communities we serve.
- Travel is being limited to essential activities; the use of teleconferencing is being expanded to eliminate non-essential travel.
- In line with Center for Disease Control recommendations, we are encouraging employees who are sick to notify their supervisor and stay home until symptom free.
- We continue to educate our employees on measures they can take to protect themselves and minimize the spread of the illness.
- We are committed to ensuring the highest levels of service to our customers. The vast majority of products we sell are sourced from within the US and Canada and as such we do not expect to experience supply disruptions. We continue to communicate with our supplier partners and will inform you if any changes occur that might affect our service position.
Our number one priority remains the safety and wellness of our employees, customers and the communities in which we live, work and raise families. We encourage you to visit this website The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to stay informed.
We will continue to communicate with you during this period as conditions change. Updates can be found on our website at www.becn.com.
