Portable chillers and temperature control systems maker Budzar Industries LLC responded to the COVID-19 outbreak in a statement that reads, in part:

Budzar Industries LLC is classified under Ohio Governor Mike DeWine’s order as an “essential business.” By manufacturing equipment and providing services and support for numerous entities in the healthcare, pharmaceutical, energy production and other essential industries, Budzar will continue all operations throughout the COVID-19 situation in accordance with federal, state and local guidelines.

We are taking additional precautions to keep our workspaces and facilities clean and sanitized at all times in order to maintain the health of our workforce, and to continue providing equipment and services as needed to all customers still operating. Although there may be unforeseen delays and longer lead times associated with the unique dynamics facing the world, Budzar will continue to operate as normal to assist all industries not only to continue operating through these difficult times, but also to help these industries serve our society as a whole, and expedite the health and well-being recovery and the industrial/economic recovery, as well.

We understand that some of our suppliers and vendors may experience additional delays also, and we appreciate that some customers may be suspending operations for a time. We are happy to assist any customers that need unique arrangements or special considerations by staging and holding completed orders, equipment, parts, etc., until such time that those customers are again able to receive deliveries. And we have a commitment to ensuring all equipment, machinery, and parts departing our facilities are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized for the safety of our employees, logistics and carriers, and our end users.
