FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Fred J. Miller Inc. Covid-19 Response, March 23
A Letter from Our Founder
As a company that has always put our clients and the students they serve first, we’ve given a lot of thought lately to you, our employees, and our greater community. Your health and safety are our top priorities and at the heart of every decision we make. We believe it’s critical to do our part during this critical time, taking steps to protect everyone in the evolving Covid-19 situation.
For the past several weeks, across our entire facility, including cutting, patterning, and delivery operations, we have increased our cleaning routine and ensured that those employees still at the offices and plant diligently follow the guidelines and best practices from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
In the wake of this pandemic, FJM has had the opportunity to assist local agencies in the greater Dayton, OH area to assemble nearly 4,000 face masks in an effort to protect essential workers in our community. This has been a very humbling experience for everyone at FJM, and we could not be more proud to support our local community.
Recent regulations, including the Governor of Ohio’s March 22nd stay-at-home order and closure of non-essential businesses, have forced FJM to severely cut back or eliminate all production and development in our Dayton plant.
As of March 23, 2020 at 5:00 pm, FJM Inc. will be suspending manufacturing and production operations until the government mandated date of April 6th. Please understand that this date could be extended longer if so-ordered by state or federal government officials.
We recommend any clients who have uniform orders in progress to check in with their representative for more details, as they will be doing the same over the next several days. Merchandise sales via fjminc.com will remain operational, but expect delays in delivery time as all businesses around the world are working through this crisis with us.
We have been, and will continue to work tirelessly to guarantee that the level of product and service you receive from FJM is delivered in the safest way possible. We will update our ongoing construction and delivery dates to reflect the governmental restrictions placed upon you and us.
We look forward to continued great relationships with all of you who have been so patient and understanding during this crisis.
Marlene A. Miller
