A MESSAGE FROM AXALTA CEO ROBERT BRYANT
Our company’s deepest sympathies go out to those who have been impacted by the coronavirus. Axalta has mobilized globally to address the current and potential impacts of coronavirus on our employees, customers, suppliers and other stakeholders.
First and foremost, we are taking all possible steps to protect the health and safety of our employees and adhering to guidance from relevant authorities. Where possible and necessary, our employees are working remotely. We have instituted global travel restrictions for all employees.
The fundamentals of our business remain strong. From a manufacturing standpoint, we continue to produce to meet customer demand around the world. We are taking steps to promote social distancing and have instituted robust on-site hygiene practices and restrictions on visits to our facilities. We are also activating contingency plans designed to ensure our ability to continue to serve our customers in the event of possible operational limitations and also exploring ways to “flex” as demand from customers changes. Please read our press release, "Axalta Provides Update in Response to Coronavirus Impact," for more information.
We are actively monitoring and managing supply chain challenges, including logistics. Thus far, there have been no significant disruptions. Our team continues to actively coordinate with our suppliers to identify and mitigate potential areas of risk and manage inventories. Where advised, we are also working to identify alternative suppliers.
Finally, we are working closely with our customers to understand their plans and needs. Our goal is to continue to deliver the outstanding service Axalta prides itself on providing.
