Covid-19 Update

The Coronavirus continues to disrupt business around the world.  We feel fortunate that our corporate office employees have remained healthy; they continue to work remotely since the state of Rhode Island ordered us to close down our North Kingstown office on March 23.

In Mexicali, we are happy to report that our employees have also remained healthy.  Recently we had more good news to share.  After much due diligence, Coto Technology, Inc. received a “stamp of acknowledgement” from Mexicali, Mexico authorities; we are now recognized as an essential business.  As such, Coto was permitted to partially re-open its main manufacturing and distribution center in Mexicali/Mexico last week.  The task was complex and carefully executed as we must adhere strictly to many restrictions and safety conditions put forth by the local authorities.  We remain guarded to the possibility that we could be forced to shut down again should federal authorities declare it necessary.

We have resumed facilitation of all incoming and outgoing shipments.  However, because a severely reduced number of staff and operators are allowed to enter our facility, production output is limited.  Priority must be given to customers who have been officially classified as “essential” entities – a status that must be proven in writing.  Remaining capacity will be used to serve general backlog.

In addition to maintaining strict hygiene standards throughout the facility, we are conducting scheduled employee health checks / measurements before and during the work days.  The safety and well-being of our employees remain our first priority.

Of course, our customers are also important to us and we fully recognize their need for our products.  We are moving forward as quickly as possible under the conditions set before us; however, until we are allowed to return to full production, we cannot rule out delays for some orders.  As we work through the complexities brought on by the Coronavirus pandemic, we ask for your continued patience and understanding as you wait for us to answer questions regarding your particular order backlog.   Meanwhile, stay healthy and stay safe.
