Huber’s Response to Coronavirus (COVID-19)
At Huber, our mission to improve today for a better tomorrow means we provide a wide range of essential products that enhance everything from construction, to agriculture, to personal care. With the uncertainty and rapidly changing situation related to the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus disease) pandemic, J.M. Huber Corporation is taking decisive actions to help ensure the safety of its employees while continuing to serve its customers.
Huber designed its Incident Response Program to prioritize employee safety and business continuity. The Incident Response Team (IRT) addressing the outbreak of COVID-19 coordinates on a local, global and enterprise-wide level.
The Huber Management Council and IRT have taken the following actions regarding the Corporation’s overall response to this terrible global event:
- Restricting non-essential travel
- Implementing stricter sanitation procedures at all sites globally
- Enabling more employees to work remotely
- Applying a wide range of work protocols at plants to help ensure employee safety while maintaining excellent operating performance
- Adjusting work practices at labs to minimize employee exposure and to maintain social distancing recommendations
All employees have been receiving regular updates from leaders and instructions from the IRT since January 22, 2020, when news about the virus was first announced.
Huber’s manufacturing facilities provide daily employee, operations and supply chain updates to Company leadership. Our teams continue to focus on meeting the needs of our customers and distributors, and Huber’s global supply chain team remains vigilant in closely monitoring and managing the continuity of material flow and logistics.
With the Huber Principles as our guide, we will continue to adapt and respond as the situation evolves. We are grateful for the efforts of our employees to safeguard themselves, their colleagues and their communities during this global crisis.
