Alden Equipment has been determined to be an ESSENTIAL Business.
Alden’s service department is instrumental in keeping the local logistics, shipping, warehousing, and grocery chains operating during these unprecedented times.
Alden is a prime DOD (Department of Defense) contractor and our support of the military is required for the National Security of the United States.
DLA (Defense Logistics Agency) issued our company the following directive today:
“Alden Equipment, Inc. through its DLA contracts supplies the U.S. military with supplies used to sustain military operations and maintain military readiness. There would be an adverse impact on the U.S. military if Alden Equipment, Inc. is unable to perform its contracts due to personnel limitations resulting from COVID-19 restrictions.”
The Under Secretary of Defense has stated that “consistent with the President’s guidelines”, as a Critical Infrastructure Industry and part of the Defense Industrial Base (DIB), it is our responsibility to maintain our normal work schedule.
We want to assure our commercial and government customers that Alden Equipment will continue normal operations.
To ensure that our customers are properly supported we have taken specific steps as part of our business continuity plan to work safely and do our part to help protect our customers, employees, and their families.
John Eisler, President
ALDEN EQUIPMENT, INC.
Alden Equipment is working hard to prevent exposure to coronavirus (COVID-19). We aim to ensure that we meet the needs of our customers as well as provide for the health and safety of our employees.
This situation has already been disruptive to many businesses across the world, but fortunately our supply chain remains unaffected.
We are practicing safe handling and care with all of our inbound & outbound shipments to ensure that all of the products are sanitized keeping both our employees and customers safe.
Effective immediately ALL mechanics working at a customer’s site, will wipe down ALL parts of the customer’s equipment that will be touched with disinfectant prior to starting repairs and after completing those repairs. This action not only protects our employees for getting exposed to the coronavirus but it will also add a level of protection to our customer’s as well. When practical, we will bring the truck outside to perform the required repairs.
Customer repairs conducted in our shop will also be disinfected prior to initiating repairs and before the truck is returned back to the customer. This procedure will also be applied to ALL rental or sold vehicles. ALL equipment leaving Alden Equipment’s location will be disinfected prior to being delivered to the customer.
This protocol will remain in effect until further notice.
To ensure our customers are supported we have taken specific steps as part of our business continuity plan. Here’s what we are doing to support both our customers and employees:
Hand hygiene, Personal protective equipment (i.e. gloves, masks, eyewear), Respiratory hygiene / cough etiquette, Disinfected instruments and devices, Clean and disinfected surfaces
We appreciate your business and your understanding as we navigate through this situation together as a global community.
