Gelest and Bimax are actively monitoring the global COVID-19 situation. We are working closely with our key suppliers to mitigate any potential delays caused by the interruption of global supply chains. The health and safety of our customers and employees is our priority. We will continue to operate our manufacturing sites, but with modified schedules in compliance with guidelines set out by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the United States Government. We will provide updates if the situation changes.
