At Presco, we feel the measure of success is defined within the parameters of essential and critical infrastructures. As a vendor to multiple contractors who are crucial to the COVID-19 emergency response sector, we want to make it known that we do not intend on shutting our facilities down in the wake of this pandemic.
As a premier supplier of Engineered Films for the Medical, Agricultural, Industrial, and Military industries, as well as Safety Marking Products and underground utility location applications, Presco products have been deemed critical resources in keeping utility workers safe, tracing essential underground resources and keeping healthcare facilities ahead of the curve. Due to the crucial role and responsibility that Presco holds to our Partners and our country, we intend to continue production and support our community as an “Essential Critical Infrastructure,” in the manufacturing sector.
What is Considered an “Essential Business”
There are 16 critical infrastructure sectors whose assets, systems, and networks, whether physical or virtual, are considered so vital to the United States that their incapacitation or destruction would have a debilitating effect on security, national economic security, national public health or safety, or any combination thereof. Presidential Policy Directive 21 (PPD-21): Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience advances a national policy to strengthen and maintain secure, functioning and resilient critical infrastructure. This directive supersedes Homeland Security Presidential Directive 7.
Per the memorandum, “Essential Business Infrastructures,” include:
- Transportation including Critical Manufacturing, Emergency Services, and Transportation Systems Sectors (e.g., fire trucks, ambulances, shuttle buses, school buses, mass transit buses, and terminal tractors)
- Manufacture, distribution, and supply chain for critical products and industries
- Supplies for Essential Businesses & Operations
- Supplies to work from home
Protecting Presco Employees
Protecting our employees is at the forefront of the Presco agenda. We will continue to adapt to the requirements for the safety of our employees and our business partners by following all necessary guidelines suggested by the CDC and NHS. Additionally, Presco has discontinued all travel and will only allow visitors that are essential to the daily operation of businesses.
