Dear Valued Partner of Kymera International,
As a follow up to my letter dated March 16, 2020, Kymera International (the Marketing Brand Name for ACuPowder,
ECKA Granules, Innobraze, Reading Alloys and SCM Metal Products) continues to do its part in protecting its employees
and the greater community. We believe the actions we have taken will help reduce the likelihood of COVID‐19 entering
Our Production Facilities
All of our global production facilities are still operating. In the U.S. there have been “stay‐at‐home” directives in New Jersey (ACuPowder), Pennsylvania (Reading Alloys) and North Carolina (SCM Metal Products) for non‐essential businesses. Kymera International is deemed an Essential Critical Infrastructure Business under the guidelines set by the Department of Homeland Security’s, Cyber and Infrastructure Agency (CISA).
Even though our production facilities are still manufacturing, all employees who have the ability to work remotely are doing so for the foreseeable future. Rest assured our attention to detail, technical support and customer service will not be compromised even during these difficult times.
We are aware that several manufacturing sectors are slowing down and therefore we are continually evaluating short term furloughs or temporarily the reducing manning of our workforce (only where appropriate) as we look to balance order demand. For the moment our copper and copper paste businesses, that are impacted by the global automotive slowdown, are showing more signs of a slowdown compared to our aluminum business that supports infrastructure and basic chemicals. Similarly, aerospace is still running strong but with commercial airline travel down significantly we would expect orders to slow down in the coming months at Reading Alloys.
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
