Operations Update From us at Genie® in Regards to Coronavirus (COVID-19)
As our nation continues to move forward through these uncertain times, we would like to reiterate that The Genie Company team is committed more than ever to safe & conforming practices that ensure the safety of our team members, customers, families, & communities.
To reaffirm our previous communication, Genie, as part of the door and operator access systems industry, has been deemed essential to the well-being of homes & businesses across the country. Each of them has the potential to be made vulnerable to security & accessibility shortcomings as the result of garage door openers, garage doors, & their accessories not performing their vital functions.
To ensure we honor the importance bestowed on the value our products provide & their continued supply, we have instituted a number of practices for the safety & welfare of all including:
• Increased cleaning & sanitation of facilities
• Expanded use of WebEx & other technologies for meeting
• Canceled or postponed group events
• Remind Team Members to stay home if they are sick
• Limited all travel
• Suspended all air travel
• Implemented work from home capabilities
We are still operating at full speed to keep pace with demand through phone, online support, email, and fax. Our distribution centers are open & continue to ship orders in a timely manner. Continual communication with our suppliers is also a key component to staying on top of developments.
Be assured that we will continue to monitor CDC guidelines & government-issued edicts for on-going developments & take the necessary precautions they advise. By doing so, we can provide you the products & services you need in order to serve your own customers in the best way possible.
Updates & helpful tips on how to make the best of things are regularly posted on our social media sites, Facebook and Instagram. We encourage you to visit us there often.
Last but not least, please do not hesitate to reach out to any team member with questions or concerns. We are here for you & look forward to continuing to serve you. It is up to each one of us to BE the solution, together. We know these are challenging times and thank you for your patience & support.
