Illinois has defined Cyl-Tec as an essential business, meaning the company will continue to support its customers during the coronavirus pandemic.

In a recent statement the compressed gas specialist said that the safety and well-being of its customers and employees is always its priority.

“We recognise the important role we play in providing much needed supplies such as medical cylinders, bulk oxygen tanks, and related supplies during this critical time.”

Cyl-Tec has said that the company is taking additional precautions including safe distancing and additional cleaning.

The company’s sales team is currently working from home and not traveling. Cyl-Tec is also supporting its employees with additional sick time to allow them to care for themselves or family members.

“Our goal is to continue to remain open to process and ship needed items and related supplies as we continue to monitor the guidance from the Federal, State, and Local Governments as well as the CDC.”
