I hope this letter finds everyone doing well. As I am sure many of you have heard, California Governor Gavin Newsom issued a "Stay at Home" order, which requires all non-essential businesses to cease operations as of March 19, 2020.
With the order came a list of exemptions for essentials businesses that support critical city, state, and federal infrastructure. The state of California and the federal government deem the operations of Precision Cutting Tools as exempt from the shut-down order and will remain open during the foreseeable future. We do not take the governor's directive and order lightly, but we supply many other critical industries that must keep their machines going.
The safety of my employees is my biggest concern during this time. Everyone has done a great job practicing social distancing and implementing proper cleaning procedures. Even though the company will continue operating, it's important that we remember health comes first.
As echoed in earlier emails, these are some of the changes that have occurred at PCT over the last few weeks:
Shipping hours: 5:00am - 1:30pm PST. Last order for same day shipment 12:00pm PST.
Office Hours: 5:00am - 5:00pm PST. Combination of in-office staff and remote workers to help answer any questions/quotes.
At PCT, we are trying our best to supply all of customers, but are prioritizing other critical industries domestically as they begin ramping up production. We appreciate your patience and understanding in advance during these extraordinary times.
