Clysar’s Response to COVID-19

In these uncertain times, it takes all of us working together to keep important goods and services flowing, while safeguarding our shared health and welfare.

As an essential packaging supplier, Clysar is open and here to support business nationwide. Thanks to our employees and partners, we are keeping protective shrink packaging flowing to manufacturers of important products, including packaging for health and hygiene items, food, medical and pharmaceutical products, cleaning products and more.

We are managing important impacts and engaging in open communication to all our stakeholders during these challenging times.

Business Continuity: What This Means for Our Customers

  • We are fully operational, agile and committed to maintaining the highest level of quality products and service.
  • Through our ongoing Contingency Planning Process, we have developed proactive COVID-19 action plans to sustain all aspects of business operation during possible disruptions.
  • As the only U.S.-based shrink manufacturer with 100% supply and production located in the U.S., we are positioned to move with agility and flexibility to meet quickly changing market conditions.
  • We are actively evaluating materials, capacity and forecasts to prepare for surges and supply & demand fluctuations.
  • We maintain long-time alternate North American supply agreements for all raw materials and supplies to mitigate risk.
  • We know today’s marketplace requires new levels of flexibility and foresight, and are adapting protocols and processes to respond to customer needs.

“I’d like to compliment Clysar and our distributor for their constant communication and flexibility in meeting our supply needs during today’s business challenges. It makes my life easier. I don’t have to worry about having the necessary shrink film we need to keep operations running.”

Safety and Site Security: Protecting People and Products

We are taking strong measures to keep our employees and customers safe, while supporting our community. We are operating in accordance with recommendations of the CDC.

This includes:

  • Robust health and hygiene protocols, with daily cleaning and sanitizing
  • Onsite nurse to monitor employee health; and provide information and support
  • Visitor restrictions and heightened health reporting for critical supply partners
  • Security and check-in procedures to limit campus access
  • Travel restrictions on domestic and international travel
  • Remote work arrangements, with use of appropriate technology

We are continuing to monitor the situation closely.
