COVID-19 Update: March 31, 2020

To our valued customers,

WIKA provides products and services to the Oil and Gas, Petrochemical/Chemical, Power Generation, Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology industries and Community health facilities. These facilities and industries are vital to support the community as we fight the COVID-19 pandemic and WIKA has been deemed an essential service by the Provincial Government.

To remain an essential service we have taken several steps to ensure we can provide our services to you at this critical time and remain ready to respond to your needs as they arise. Here is a short list of steps that have already been implemented and that are being expanded and reduced as developments occur.

  • Initiated local in-office social distancing Eliminated personal clock-in and out to prevent in-line waiting/close proximity
  • Implemented a temporary work from home initiative with remote access to all systems
  • Banned international travel and inbound international visitors to WIKA sites; limited domestic visitors to necessity only, and have established protocols to follow.
  • Restricted domestic travel for all employees except for business critical situations, including onsite service
  • Implemented staggered shifts, including additional lunch periods and breaks, to minimize potential exposure and to maximize social distancing.

We are committed to remaining open and thank you to all our customers for your patience as we continue to navigate the coming weeks. By continuing to work together as partners, we can protect our employees, reduce the spread of the virus, and sustain our businesses.

Respectfully,

Colin Brook, P.Eng.

President of WIKA Canada
