Worthington Industries has announced its support of the stay at home executive orders issued in the states where it operates, including in Ohio where it is headquartered.
“We are committed to the health and safety of our employees and minimising the spread of COVID-19 by enforcing all recommended measures including working from home where possible, practicing good hygiene, social distancing, extensive cleaning, job rotations and minimising the in-person workforce to essential personnel only,” said John McConnell, Chairman and CEO of Worthington.
“Under the various federal and state guidelines, most of our operations fall under the ‘essential business’ classification.”
“We manufacture or contribute to supply chains for products utilised in medical applications, food storage and distribution, transportation, military, defence, first responder, capabilities, clean water, cooking and heating and the production of oil and gas in the US.”
“While our top priority will always be the safety of our people, we are also focused on servicing our customers and our country by continuing to make these critical products.”
