Dear Valued Customers,
Following the March 23 announcement by the Quebec government requiring the closing of non-essential businesses for a 3 week period, I want to reassure you that based upon our understanding and that of our legal team, Laurentide Controls is considered as a company that provides essential products and services to our customers in Quebec, Atlantic Canada, and Eastern Ontario. As such we will remain open and in full operation for the foreseeable future.
We actively support hospitals, pharmaceutical manufacturers, food and beverage producers, electrical power generation, natural gas transmission and distribution, medical equipment manufacturers, oil refineries, chemical manufacturers, pulp & paper producers including tissue and containerboard manufacturers, metals producers, and many other industries critical to society in these unprecedented times. Our purpose is “To Help Industry Thrive in Eastern Canada” and we will continue to do so as we have for over 50 years.
As we observe the Canadian response to the COVID‐19 Coronavirus, I want to assure you that Laurentide is very focused on the safety of our employees, customers, suppliers, and communities. We have adopted best practices of social distancing, frequent disinfection of our facilities, strict health monitoring and travel restrictions. In accordance with local health policy or recommendations, we have also adopted work from home strategies where feasible to help reduce risk and break the cycle of infection.
