Helmar Inc. remains open through this difficult time. Our building is closed to visitors and for pick ups. All shipping options are running as usual and Helmar is continuing to run at full capacity.
Thank you for your continued business. We hope you all stay safe and healthy during this very difficult time. We are all in this together.
Helmar Inc. continues to prioritize the safety of our employees and customers. While this global pandemic is changing our world day by day, we remain consistent in supplying our customers with essential products during this difficult time. As you may be aware, Governor Cuomo (NY) has ordered all non-essential employees to stay home, thus closing down thousands of businesses. Helmar has been deemed essential and will continue operations.
Helmar has modified daily operations in accordance with CDC guidelines and Governor Cuomo’s executive orders. While we have reduced our staff, we remain open and fully operational. The continued supply chain of the United States is essential to winning this war against COVID-19.
After much thought and consideration we will remain open for as long as we are capable and advised to do so. As hospitals and first responders struggle to keep basic supplies in stock and manufacturers shift production from industrial to medical, it is crucial for the material handling and supply chain industries to continue steady operations. The extreme shortages we are witnessing are not caused by a lack of demand but rather a supply shortage.
At Helmar Inc., the safety and well-being of our employees and customers are always our main concern. Like all of you, we are actively monitoring the evolving COVID-19 situation and we are taking steps to help keep our employees and customers safe. Increased safety measures are also being taken at our facility to help maintain as healthy an environment as possible
Helmar is implementing policies to allow for sustained operations to continue supporting your business. We are still able to ship, and our customer service team is available to you. While we do not foresee any disruptions in freight service at this time, given the fluidity of the situation, we ask that you place time-sensitive orders as soon as possible. Additionally, we will not be allowing pick-up orders or in-person interaction at this time
Thank you for your continued business and please follow guidelines issued by government authorities for your personal health and safety.
