Continuing operations and our response to COVID-19 - March 19, 2020

Komatsu, Mar 19, 2020
Following government and global health organization guidance regarding COVID-19, we have enacted policies to reduce risk for our employees including remote work for all who can, rotating and segregating essential operations and supply shifts, strict travel restrictions, prohibiting visitors to our facilities and supporting quarantine needs.

Working with our global teams, distributors and supply chain partners, we are committed to continuing to provide the essential equipment, technology and services our customers depend on, while prioritizing health and safety measures at our facilities and for our employees worldwide. Without minerals and metals, our power and utility infrastructure, and many of the life-saving medical devices and medications that doctors and patients rely on daily would cease to function.

Meeting customer needs and providing essential support for the construction, industrial machinery, mining and forestry industries remain top priorities and we will continue to fulfill our obligations to the best of our ability as we monitor the evolving situation, and communicate and adapt accordingly.
