Dear Foodmate US Customer,
We understand that you are an integral component of the nation’s food supply chain and that access to your locations is ultimately your decision and responsibility. That said, we are dedicated to assisting you with optimizing and maintaining your operations.
Regarding repair and maintenance, we stand ready to assist you in the following ways: over the phone consultation and support; shipping of necessary parts; on-site service calls based on service tech availability. In the event you request an on-site service call, we can confirm the following procedures are in place and good faith measures are being undertaken to ensure:
- Proper communication of and adherence to recommended CDC procedures
- Individuals known to have contracted or known to have been in close contact with someone who has contracted the COVID-19, will not be allowed to visit your facilities.
- Individuals representing or working for Foodmate who display a fever over 100.4 and who are exhibiting a respiratory illness will not be allowed to visit your facilities. We would ask that, at a minimum, you and your employees reciprocate those procedures and measures at your locations. Regarding our AIP service contracts, all visits and rebuilds have been put on hold until further notice.
Regarding scheduled and future capital project installations, we will work with you to determine the most appropriate path forward, considering the health of our collective employees, shipping disruptions and other operational requirements.
We have initiated work-from-home precautions to do our part as a good corporate citizen; however, we are ready to receive your requests via email and phone calls.
Please let me know if you need additional information at this time.
