Dear Valued Clients and Stakeholders,
As promised, we stated that we would provide updates of any significant changes in our business due to COVID-19. Yesterday, March 19th, California Governor, Gavin Newsom, ordered a "stay at home" mandate. These measures are urgently needed to slow the spread of the Corona virus and to protect society. The Tecate Group also wants to share this responsibility while maintaining our economic structures. By capitalizing on digital collaboration tools that allow much of our workforce to work remotely, our sales team and customer service representatives are available to address any of your questions or concerns without disruption.
To the best of our ability all backorders due by 4/1/2020 for North American customers have been shipped. Our plan is to make once weekly shipments from our San Diego facility on Fridays to "essential" manufacturers, those supporting Medical, Military and Public Utility/Grid, or deferring shipments based on customer instructions. We are fortunate that our manufacturing and shipping operations in Asia will not be affected at this time.
As things continue to evolve, we will continue to communicate with you. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding during these challenging times.
President and CEO
