UPDATE ON BERETTA USA ACTIONS TO PROTECT CUSTOMERS AND EMPLOYEES DURING THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK
During the last several days, the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation has continued to evolve and we have taken additional measures to protect our customers and our employees.
Our goal continues to be keeping you and our employees safe.
With that in mind, we took the necessary initiatives to adjust our work and operations by implementing precautionary measures to increase protection of our customers and employees. We are basing our actions on the Centers for Disease Control and OSHA guidelines and recommendations regarding the steps we can take to help prevent the spread of the virus.
We have suspended business travel and implemented work from home measures wherever possible.
We have suspended our gunsmithing operations in Accokeek, Maryland. Effective Monday, March 23rd any shipment not received by that date is being returned to sender via the carrier. Shipments received prior to March 23rd are going to be serviced upon reopening of our gunsmithing department.
Our Dallas Gallery is open with modified hours while our New York Gallery remains temporarily close. Please keep checking our website to get updates on the status of the stores.
Our factory and warehouse facilities at this point continue to operate. For those locations we are:
· Ramping up cleaning services and disinfecting all touchpoint surfaces as well as asking our employees to wash their hands thoroughly and frequently as a further precaution.
· Implementing temperature checks and making masks and gloves mandatory for all our employees.
· Revising processes and layouts to ensure safe distancing between employees to reduce the likelihood that COVID-19 virus might be spread.
As our customer, you may also visit our e-store for your information and shopping needs as we are ready to serve you at Beretta.com
Beretta USA has taken these precautions out of respect to our employees and you. We will continue to closely monitor the situation and do all we can to protect you and our employees.
We thank you for your continued patronage and support.
