To help tackle the pandemic and keep crucial sectors like power generation, oil and gas, aerospace, military and marine on-line, SIFCO ASC’s sites remain open under social distancing guidelines.
SIFCO ASC’s teams around the world are closely monitoring the situation and following governmental advice on medical, social, and commercial matters to best protect all those that they work with.
Only key maintenance engineers and selective plating technicians are on-site at SIFCO ASC’s locations in the US, UK, France and Sweden, while all non-critical office staff is working remotely.
"We know that the COVID-19 situation is causing a lot of uncertainty for people and businesses across the world. At this time, we want to make sure that we can ease this anxiety and provide support where needed," said Chic Allen, GM at SIFCO ASC. "By remaining operational, we are still able to take on repair projects at our sites, and we are shipping our solutions to trades across the world so that crucial repairs can be done. For industries like power generation, this is critical, as otherwise generators risk unexpected failures if not maintained, which can then go on to affect electricity supplies."
SIFCO ASC ships its solutions and repair kits globally, including the Americas, Africa, EMEA and Asia-Pacific regions.
Bespoke customer electroplating solutions are still being fulfilled, while the company is working with its logistics partners to maintain its standard three-day turnaround where feasible.
Operating from seven sites across the world, customers can access SIFCO ASC’s dedicated support and research and development teams at:
- Norfolk, Virginia;
- East Windsor, Connecticut;
- Bromsgrove, West Midlands, UK;
- Saint-Thibault-des-Vignes, Seine-et-Marne, France;
