Energy is Essential 

As outlined by the federal government, the energy industry is essential to our country’s functioning. While some businesses have been forced to shut down during this challenging season, the energy industry will keep moving for the good of our nation and its citizens.

As an energy product manufacturer, Kimray will continue operating in order to fulfill our responsibility to the industry we support and the communities we serve.

While things have changed rapidly over the last few days, Kimray manufacturing and all of our regional stores will remain open during this time.

We are closely following the available data on COVID-19 and monitoring the information and directives coming from federal and state agencies. We have instituted significant procedures to reduce the opportunities for exposure within our workplace.

These include the normal protocols of practicing social distancing, staggering shifts, increased cleaning and sanitizing both our stores and manufacturing areas.

Kimray Partners, 

By now you have likely heard of COVID-19, the virus that has affected people around the world and caused disruption to many industries.  

According to the most recent information from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) , for most people in the United States the immediate risk of being exposed to this virus is low. We are aware of and keeping an eye on this evolving situation. 

Out of an abundance of caution, Kimray has taken the following steps: 

  • Initiated social distancing practices
  • Restricted all international and domestic air travel for all team members 
  • Restricted travel to gatherings or conferences to be approved on a case-by-case basis 
  • Instituted a 14-day quarantine policy for any team member who travels to a high-risk area, including any state or region with a Level 2 or Level 3 Travel Health Notice by the Center for Disease Control

At this point, Kimray does not anticipate any manufacturing or shipping delays due to this development.  

We are in frequent communication with our suppliers and extended supply base, identifying any area that might be influenced by COVID-19. Due to the highly domestic supply chain that Kimray continues to foster, we see very minimal potential impact and are monitoring inventory levels both internal and at our suppliers. 

We carry a strategic supply of our most popular items at our Distribution Center in Oklahoma City and are positioned to cover current demand and maintain timely deliveries. Our store locations and Independent Distributors are also well prepared with their highest moving items. 

If you have further questions regarding product availability, please contact your local Kimray store or authorized distributor. We will continue to update this blog with news as well.
