We want to assure our customers and valued partners that Cook Brothers Truck Parts is currently maintaining all our regular services in the wake of the Covid-19 virus pandemic. We have been classified an essential business in both the State of NY and the Commonwealth of PA – as such, we will continue to operate as normal.
We are actively working to comply with all healthcare guidelines and government orders to ensure the health, safety and well-being of our employees – this is of paramount importance to us. As of today, March 23, 2020, we are pleased to report that our staff currently has no visible symptoms of the virus and we are taking many precautions to prevent the spread of this and any illness. Our Safety Director has issued an internal Covid-19 Health and Safety Policy for all employees and our sanitation team has doubled their efforts to keep our workplace free of contagions – especially in high touch, high traffic areas. Our outside sales team has been instructed to work remotely and have stopped making face to face sales calls. We have suspended supplier visits to reduce the number of individuals visiting our locations. We have arranged for better crowd control at all branches to ensure social distancing is in effect for all customer interactions. Our delivery team is also practicing social distancing while making customer deliveries – we actively work with our customers to see if there is a designated area we can drop off parts that minimizes customer contact. We have also instructed any employees to remain home if they feel sick or if they are experiencing any of the Covid-19 published symptoms.
We are working on several other precautionary measures that we expect to roll out over the next few days to keep everyone as safe as possible. Please keep in mind that, although some of these initiatives may appear to be inconvenient, it is done in the interest of keeping our employees and customers healthy. We thank you for understanding that any steps we take are designed to protect the health and well-being our staff and our customers.
Although there are some product categories that are experiencing service interruptions, our general supply chain is working as planned with few issues preventing us from fulfilling customer orders. In addition, Cook Brothers Truck Parts has exceptionally strong inventory levels and is well positioned to help you keep your trucks on the road and your equipment running.
We will continue to monitor the ongoing situation and provide additional communications should any new developments arise. There is no question that the trucking industry is an important part of us making it through this pandemic. Without the efforts of the men and women behind the wheel, the supply chain falls apart and society will suffer for it. We take our responsibility to support the efforts of the American Trucker extremely seriously. WE ARE HERE FOR YOU. We take the responsibility to support the efforts of the municipalities in our markets very seriously – it is through your efforts that our communities will weather this storm. WE ARE HERE FOR YOU.
