With the various business shut down mandates many states have enacted, we wanted to update you on the status of our operations during the COVID-19 pandemic.  As you well know, the plastics industry serves the food, medical, aerospace, defense, and automotive markets and several others.  Though the state of Michigan has mandated the shut down of most businesses, ours falls under the critical services exemption, allowing us to continue to operate during this time. 
So far, we have experienced minimal disruptions to our supply chain.  We are still able to purchase steel and the hard surface materials we use to weld your screws, and our barrel supply line is running faster than ever.  The only hiccup we have experienced to date has been intermittent interruptions in our Nitride process as a result of decreased demand.  Since most screws under 40mm are made of tool steel, and hence heat-treated, they remain unaffected.  Larger welded screws, however, are Nitrided, so we will keep you apprised on any open orders that are affected by these slowdowns. 
Moving forward, we will be sure to present all available alternatives upon issuing new quotes, including the alternative of manufacturing larger screws out of tool steel to help sidestep potential delivery delays.  Yes, making the larger screws from tool steel is a pricey option, but it may often be the most advantageous from a delivery perspective.  Regardless, our goal is to always provide you with solutions that best meet the timing requirements of your critical operations at the best possible price. 
This situation is obviously fluid, but rest assured that we are doing everything we can to maintain all delivery dates and to remain available for any needs you have as we navigate this unprecedented challenge.
