NIDEC-SHIMPO Statement on COVID-19
March 16, 2020
Valued Customers, Suppliers and Partners,
The impact caused by COVID-19 to our local and the global community, along with the response, is evolving rapidly. NIDEC-SHIMPO is monitoring the situation closely and ensuring internal measures are put in place to protect the health and safety of our employees while at the same time serving our customers’ needs.
As a global manufacturing company focused on providing the highest level of customer service, NIDEC-SHIMPO is committed to ensure there is no disruption of our products and services from our internal manufacturing, or any of our supply chain partners.
NIDEC-SHIMPO has already taken steps to avoid the spread of the COVID-19 virus, including:
- Establishing a COVID-19 committee to review all information and establish the best response for the well-being of our company and customers
- Sanitizing our work environment by additional cleaning to disinfect all surfaces and implementing hand sanitizing stations throughout our offices, manufacturing and warehousing areas
- Implementing remote work for office staff to be able to handle normal administrative functions including phones, order processing, engineering, technical support and accounting
- Manufacturing continuation through isolated work zones: manufacturing personnel are being trained to operate in an environment that limits their interaction with other teammates. This isolation includes the restriction of movement to common areas; limits on the sharing of tools, machines, or other processes; and frequent cleaning.
