A Message From Our CEO – COVID-19 Update

By:Mason Sugars | August 04, 2020

Dear Valued Customers and Partners,

I would like to take this opportunity to provide an update in response to the Victorian State Government’s announcement yesterday afternoon of Victoria moving to Stage 4 Restrictions. The entire Avlite Community recognises the severity of the global COVID-19 pandemic and supports all measures to combat the spread of COVID-19.

Business Continuity – Australia Operations

Our business has reviewed and assessed the Victorian Premier’s press conference from yesterday afternoon, as well as the associated documents. As a critical supplier to the essential industries of Defence and Transportation, Avlite is declared to be an industry permitted to operate under a COVID safe plan. We are mindful of the need for our business to stay open to support the livelihoods of the people we employ, and the delivery of essential services that meet the safety needs of our clients. In line with the new Victorian Government requirements, we have reviewed our current COVID measures and they comply with all the current requirements.

In addition to our health and safety measures, we have plans in place securing our supply chain to ensure the continuous provision of parts. From the outset of this pandemic, Avlite has not lost a single day of production and we currently forecast no impacts to the processing and supply of customer orders and product supply.

Business Continuity – USA & UK Operations

Our USA and UK operations continue to operate at full capacity, having implemented measures to ensure their manufacturing facilities can continue to function safely in accordance with all local health and safety measures.

Thank you for your continued support throughout this period. On a personal note, our thoughts extend to the many Victorian businesses that will be forced to close this week, and the hundreds of thousands of employees being stood down.

Sincerely,

Chris Procter, CEO
