COVID-19 ALERT NOTICE
Dear Business Partners & State Officials,
Matsui America recognizes the challenges everyone, including elected officials, health administrators, and others, are facing in making tough decisions aimed at protecting communities in the U.S. as the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to grow. We appreciate the efforts you and others have undertaken to slow the spread of this virus and keep the American public safe.
We have an estimate of 10 employees of Matsui America in Hanover Park Village working tirelessly to provide the machinery necessary to make the single-use of products and PPE that are needed for health workers at the front-lines; therefore, we consider Matsui America “essential”.
Many of the products that consumers need during this time are made of plastics, or packaged in plastic. From drug packaging to packaging for medical devices, as well as many of the medical devices themselves, plastics are essential to ensuring the safety of the healthcare workforce, patients and consumers. Plastics keep medical devices clean and protected and are inert, so they do not interact with the device or drug. In return, these medical devices do not expose us to contamination and infection. Plastic packaging also helps reduce food-related contamination, while allowing people who do not have refrigeration or proper food storage to safely get the nutrients they need. This is crucial in keeping our food supplies safe and accessible during this pandemic. Additionally, many of the products we use to clean our homes, schools, hospitals, and public places are packaged in, delivered in and/ or applied using plastic.
The Federal Government has also recognized the crucial role companies such as Matsui America play. The US Department of Homeland Security issued a memorandum on March 19, 2020, to identify essential critical infrastructure workers during the COVID-19 response.
Matsui America is following CDC and OSHA guidelines on social distancing, good hygiene, and teleworking to keep our workers safe and healthy.
We stand united with you and our nation's leaders to do what we can to help us get through this difficult period and come out as a stronger nation together. Again, we consider Matsui America as “essential” during this critical time.
President of Matsui America, Inc.
