The component and system supplier continues to follow procedures put in place on March 18th, and in the last week have implemented additional measures to safeguard the employees further. To follow the best practices laid out by the CDC and WHO, Sumitomo performed a deep clean of each common area in the shop. To date, Sumitomo has had no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in any of the facilities across North and South America … and is grateful for the commitment the employees have to serve the customers and to keep the countries running.
