A MESSAGE FROM JAY LUND, CHAIRMAN AND CEO
March 21, 2020
To our Customers and Community:
At Andersen, we set out every day to make the world a better place by taking care of our employees, serving our customers and supporting our communities. While our normal way of life has been disrupted by the unfolding global pandemic commonly referred to as coronavirus (COVID-19), our commitment to this purpose is unwavering.
As a 117-year-old company, we have been through adversity many times before. Through it all, we have persevered and grown stronger by working “all together” the Andersen way and living by our company’s longstanding values.
Our first priorities are always the health and safety of our employees. In the face of this pandemic, we are working every day to help protect the health of our employees, curb community spread of the COVID-19 virus, maintain business continuity and serve our customers to the best of our abilities. We are taking proactive actions to help protect the health of our hardworking employees by instituting social distancing practices, requiring anyone who is ill to stay home and increasing cleaning of our facilities, following federal, state and local government guidance for our operations.
Windows and doors are critical components to essential housing infrastructure for individuals, families and industry. It is hard to imagine a time when shelter was more important, and at Andersen we feel both pride and a high sense of urgency to help be a part of creating and improving necessary housing during this incredibly challenging time. As a core part of the construction industry supply chain, we are committed to maintaining our operations and serving our customers to the best of our ability.
At this time, our valued Andersen associates continue to craft, deliver, install and service the windows and doors that builders and homeowners trust. We believe the Andersen team that builds our windows and doors are the absolute best in the business, and we could not be prouder of each of them every day, and especially right now. As we respond to the evolving coronavirus crisis and its impact on our business, we are prepared to take additional actions where appropriate to ensure the health and safety of our employees and all people who associate with Andersen.
Our greatest wish for you and your loved ones is that you are safe.
Chairman and CEO
