Reliance Label COVID-19 (coronavirus) Customer and Partner Statement

Updated August 17, 2020

To our Valued Customers and Business Partners,

We are pleased to report no COVID-19 cases at our Paola manufacturing facility, and no issues with our supply line for incoming raw materials as well.

We continue to be as proactive as possible with regards to keeping our employees safe.  We have implemented temperature checks for all employees entering the building.  Our employees are following CDC guidelines for social distancing, regular hand washing, use of masks and regular cleaning & disinfecting of all frequently touched surfaces.

We have signed a lease on additional office space near our facility.  When it is safe to move office employees back from their at-home offices, they will now be in an office separate from manufacturing. This will also help us add more manufacturing and storage capacity to our plant.

As part of the ESSENTIAL CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE WORKFORCE, Reliance will continue to take additional preventative measures we deem necessary to remain fully operational and ensure no delays to our Customers.

Our thoughts are with our many friends, co-workers, customers and suppliers, Especially those whose loved ones are fighting the illness.

Jack McEntee
