Astec Industries, Inc. on COVID-19
Astec Industries is committed to the safety of our employees, suppliers, stakeholders and their families. Several weeks ago we formed a Coronavirus task force which continually monitors information from our sites, government agencies and other sources. We consider the COVID-19 pandemic to be extremely serious and fluid.
With appropriate precautions, we continue to manufacture, sell and service our products. Our products are vital for building infrastructure used to get goods to market, facilitate the transportation needs of communities and provide jobs for thousands of people.
We ask that you practice good hygiene at all times. Frequent handwashing, social distancing and regular cleaning of commonly touched surfaces are practices deemed by the United States Center of Disease Control and Prevention to reduce health risks.
Internally we have enacted several policies to combat the virus and keep our employees and visitors safe. We have a new visitor’s policy, so please contact your representative at Astec Industries before scheduling a site visit. Our facilities have additional signage promoting healthy activities and good hygiene. All our locations are cleaning hard surfaces and frequently touched surfaces throughout the workday. Additionally, we have greatly reduced our business travel and are utilizing technology to meet virtually as business permits.
We will continue to communicate with you about COVID-19 and its impact on our company and wish you the best of health.
