To combat the spread of COVID-19 many states & municipalities are implementing ‘shelter in place’ regulations as well as requiring ‘non-essential’ businesses to temporarily close. On March 24th, a “Stay at Home” proclamation was issued for all of Mecklenburg County effective March 26, 2020 at 8:00 a.m. through April 16, 2020 at midnight. This letter is to inform you that Bunker Automation will continue to stay open because it falls within the definition of an “Essential Business or Operation” as described in the order.

Specific guidelines supplied by the Department of Homeland Security and Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) outlines which organizations are permitted to remain open. Companies engaged in critical manufacturing and waste water are within those guidelines and are deemed essential. Our company supports and produces manufacturing equipment to transportation, defense, and waste water industries. Following the guidelines set by the government we are recognized as an essential business.  In this time of uncertainty, we are committed to supporting our customers with quality products and service.

That being said, looking out for the safety and well-being of our employees, colleagues, and communities is our top priority. Bunker Automation recognizes the significant impact the coronavirus has taken and remains hopeful as we navigate this pandemic.

This is a critical time for Bunker Automation’s business. Our intent is to continue operating, in keeping with our understanding of applicable law and the guidance provided by public health authorities, for as long as we are permitted to do so.
