Dear AKS Cutting Systems Valued Customers and Friends:
The recent events to hit our nation are unprecedented. The Covid-19 pandemic has stressed our nation’s systems in healthcare, finance, manufacturing, education, and just about every facet of our daily lives.
AKS Cutting Systems has been diligent about following new safety protocols and precautions in our office and factory, including all of our personnel, both factory-based and field travelers. On March 22, the Governor of Ohio, Mike DeWine, issued a “Stay-at-Home” order, effective March 23 through April 6, in which all non-essential businesses must close and employees stay home.
AKS Cutting Systems provides “manufacturing, distribution and supply chain products for critical production involving waste collection, agriculture, energy, and the tech support industries,” as described in paragraph 12(v) of the Governor’s Order. Therefore, AKS, and its parent company Kiffer Industries, are an Essential Business and Operation and will remain open and continue business operations, while still practicing the social distancing requirements and other precautions as described in paragraph 15 & 18.
AKS is committed to supporting our customers and supporting our nation’s critical manufacturing industry segment. For over 100 years, since 1912, our company has been “Made-in-the-USA” and is proud to continue to support our nation and its citizens. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Thank you.
Director, Sales & Marketing
