COVID-19 Updates

An Update From Artone Management
April 13, 2020

Keeping Our Employees, Customers, & Community Safe

See what steps we're taking to respond to COVID-19.

We are taking every necessary precaution to help prevent the further spread of the virus. We will continue to do so until a time deemed safe again. As an additional precautionary measure, for several days (prior to Artone being deemed an essential business in New York) our facilities and maintenance team cleaned and disinfected our entire 250,000 sq. ft. facility; from the shop floor to offices, bathrooms to machinery.  We are currently cleaning surfaces that are touched regularly like doorknobs and handrails, bathrooms several times a day

Here are some of the ways we are protecting our employees and serving our communities and customers during this difficult time:

Protecting Employee Health and Well-being

This is a dynamic environment that we are constantly monitoring. Based on guidance from local, state and federal governments and health officials, our management team has:

  • Required regular hand washing or using 60% alcohol-based hand rubs. Workers should also always wash hands when they are visibly soiled and after removing any PPE. 
  • Provided resources and a work environment that promotes additional personal hygiene. For example, we have provided employees with tissues, no-touch trash cans, hand soap, alcohol-based hand rubs, disinfectants, and disposable towels for workers to clean work surfaces.
  • Asked that all employees take their temperature before coming to work.  If their temperature is 99 degrees or higher, they’re not permitted to come into work.  
  • Notified all on-premise personnel that if a physical meeting is imperative to invite-only essential (i.e. the minimum number) people deemed who are deemed absolutely necessary.    

We will adapt our efforts and responses around the world as needed. 

Prioritizing Safety in Production and Distribution Facilities

Since the coronavirus outbreak began, we have implemented additional cleaning and sanitization routines focusing on high-touch surfaces. We have also restricted visitors to our facilities.

We have reinforced hygiene and exposure guidelines with our employees. If we become aware an employee is ill or had direct or indirect contact with someone with COVID-19, we will immediately implement our isolation and sanitization protocols, as well as begin necessary quarantines, in accordance with guidance from local health officials.

Encouraging Remote Working

Based on recommendations to reduce large gatherings and increase social distancing, Artone has asked select office-based employees to work remotely. This includes members of the following departments: 

  • Sales
  • Estimating
  • Graphics
  • Information Technology 

Restricting Travel

We have suspended all employee travel at this time. Until additional travel guidelines are outlined for health officials, Artone employee travel will remain suspended for the foreseeable future. 


Stay safe,

An Update From Artone Management
March 24, 2020

We're Here To Help

See what steps we're taking to respond to COVID-19.

Artone has been approved by New York State as an essential business during this unprecident time. 

So, what does this mean:

  • Our production team will be 100% fully operational ready to fulfill current & new orders
  • Our team will also be working diligently to ship out any complete product/orders we have being held at our facility in order to maintain project/shipping schedules.
  • Our current lead times may be extended by one to two weeks as we regroup after initial mandates were set in place. As always, we will take every reasonable measure to ensure as seamless a turnover as is
    possible given the current situation. (This may affect any recent orders that have not yet started (due to payment, approvals, etc.))

While we’re thrilled to have our team back and production fully operational, as a company, our priority will remain the health and safety of our employees and doing our part to help stop the spread of the virus. We will be taking every recommended measure to ensure proper protocols are in place.  

Artone will continue to do what we can do support our customers during this challenging time. Please feel free to reach out directly to our corporate office or your local salesperson with any questions.

We thank you for your support and loyalty. We will continue to provide you with updates as the situation unfolds.

Stay safe,
Michael Calimeri
