We hope this letter finds you, your colleagues and your loved ones healthy and safe in the midst of the present global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We are writing to inform you that Kason Corporation remains open and operational as an Essential Business. We will continue to provide technical support, manufactured aftermarket parts and screens, as well as complete machines to supply you and other critical industry infrastructure sectors.
The Governor of New Jersey issued an order dated March 21, 2020 (the “Order”), which requires “the brick-and-mortar premises of all non-essential retail businesses [to] close to the public as long as [the] Order remains in effect.” NJ. Exec. Order 107 (Mar. 21, 2020), https://nj.gov/infobank/eo/056murphy/pdf/EO-107.pdf.
Kason is a non-retail business operating in New Jersey. Kason manufactures and services mission critical separation and thermal/moisture control equipment in service of critical industries such as food and agriculture, pharmaceuticals and chemical manufacturing. Based on the foregoing, Kason meets the requirements to continue operations under the Order because it is a non-retail business serving critical infrastructure sectors.
Kason Corporation’s contribution to the response to the COVID-19 pandemic is imperative and we are proud of the work our team is doing to support the response. We remind you that our highest priority remains the health and well-being of our people, our customers, and our suppliers. We are continuing to monitor the situation and follow guidance from WHO and CDC as well as state and local governments.
Please contact us if you have any questions regarding the status of any open orders that you currently have with Kason, or any other questions or concerns. We will work with you and do our best to accommodate your requests.
Please protect yourselves and others through continued safe practices. We thank you for your continued support and strive to provide you with the same.
