In a statement the company said, “We want to assure you that at Electronic Fluorocarbons (EFC) there is nothing more important to us than the health, safety and emotional well-being of our customers, sellers, partners and staff during this time of uncertainty due to COVID-19.”

“With that in mind, we are following guidelines from the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as from local and federal authorities to diminish the risks of transmission at our offices and plant operations.”

“We’ve addressed schedule changes to limit personal proximity, ceased travel, cancelled meetings and moved meetings from in-person to virtual. These changes will remain in effect until further notice.” 

“The well-being and safety of our staff is at the forefront of our business and we are doing everything possible to do our part and to keep our communities safe.”

“Gov. Tom Wolf of Pennsylvania declared that businesses such as ours, chemical manufacturers specifically, are deemed essential and shall remain open. While many other business closures are non-life sustaining, Electronic Fluorocarbons is an essential of the supply chain.”

“As a manufacturer and distributor of cryogenic and compresses gases that are widely used to support laboratory, medical, semiconductor, and electrical grid infrastructure, we are here and are united in our efforts to combat COVID-19.”
