ROCHESTER, NY – Web Seal has received official New York State designation as an “essential business,” according to John F. Hurley, company president, as part of the governor’s Covid-19 protocols.
“On Friday, March 20, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo issued an executive order stipulating that all non-essential businesses must cease operations at 8:00 pm EDT on Sunday, March 22. Web Seal is continuing its fabrication, warehouse and shipping operations now to support other essential businesses and meet those critical customer needs, while balancing the health and safety of our employees” Hurley added.
Web Seal is a critical Tier 2 supplier to a wide range of essential industries including, but not limited to, food processing, filtration (air and water), medical equipment, power generation and transmission, pumps and municipal water systems, defense/aerospace, automotive and other transportation, and telecommunications.
Web Seal manufactures and supplies industrial sealing components and cushioning/padding required to assemble their products. In addition, Web Seal provides just-in-time storage and fulfillment operations, along with technical support and design assistance.
“All non-essential associates are working remotely from home. Each of our employees in manufacturing and fulfillment operations are individually stationed in work centers that are at least 12-15 feet apart,” added Hurley. “We have suspended all site visits and group meetings, and have increased our cleaning and sanitizing frequency and protocols. We will continue to comply with all local, state and federal directives during the Covid-19 pandemic as well as recommendations from the state and federal departments of health.”
“We are facing uncertain days ahead but we ask businesses, individuals and groups who are part of the country’s essential infrastructure to contact us if you have any questions about how Web Seal can support your vital production needs,” continued Hurley.
