Covid-19 - IVF Store Operations
To our Valued Customers and Partners,
This letter is in response to the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the impact it has taken on demand for multiple protective equipment and medical solutions products, including: Face Masks (N95 and surgical) and Protective Equipment (goggles, gloves, and face shields). This demand currently extends across multiple protective and medical solutions products. We are keeping a watchful eye on additional product lines that could be impacted in the near or distant future.
We are working daily with our supplier partners and logistics providers to address shortages as they occur. Considering the current conditions, we anticipate disruptions to orders for certain infection control products.
Accordingly, we are proactively placing certain products, within the below categories, on allocation to prioritize our inventory for our existing customers:
- PPE coveralls, gowns, caps & shoe covers
- Facial protection
- Select exam gloves
- Hand Sanitizers
The evaluation for allocation, as goods are secured, will include multiple factors, most notably historical demand run rates. We are diligently working to find new sources to supplement our current suppliers and enhance our ability to fill orders. As this develops, our team will provide details on how we can potentially improve the current outlook for supply.
Our entire IVF Store team remains committed to balanced distribution of all protective products that both supports the public health and governmental response to the Coronavirus and ensures product availability to our existing industrial and healthcare customers whose operations rely on our products.
