    In light of the Corona Virus (COVID-19) pandemic, we wanted to create a space where members can interact with each other while being socially responsible at the same time.

    Feel free to use this space to communicate and update each other regarding your company, status and current specials, etc.

      Dear Valued Distributor Partners,

      There is no question the events of the last 6 weeks have had and will continue to have a significant impact on our economy, industry, businesses and personal lives.

      As you most likely know, Tekweld was designated by the State of New York as an Essential Supplier of goods to combat this invisible enemy. The biggest juggling act and our number one priority is to be socially responsible during this crisis, while also trying to meet our customers demand for essential products in the line. Two weeks ago, we were required to halt production on most of the line to give priority to hand sanitizer orders. While each day continues to bring new challenges, we are happy to report that as of today we are again able to produce both essential and non-essential items currently.

      It is with grateful hearts that within the last week we were able to bring back 25% of our factory workers. This week we will double that number and will be well on our way to running at full capacity once again. We very much appreciate your patience with us over the last month as we encountered several challenges that come with trying to scale to meet the demands of an unprecedented amount of increased business that accumulated basically overnight. Our CRR, KAM departments and Regional Sales Managers have worked tirelessly fielding phone calls and doing everything possible to keep you, our valued customers well informed.

      IMPORTANT INFORMATION : As it relates to our current production status - Please note that our average production time on hand sanitizer is still extended due to limited availability of product. We are filling as quickly as we can, however the current and incoming stock has been allocated to existing orders, with incoming stock already set aside for backorders. We do, however, have a waiting list and are adding purchase orders to it daily while increasing our domestic output and overseas orders to meet demand.

      The rest of our product line, for the most part, can ship in 3 to 5 working days. This includes lip balm, sunglasses, cannabis products, drinkware, pet items, and more. For a complete listing, we encourage you to visit our website www.tekweld.com or flip through our 2020 books digitally on Zoom Catalog.

      If you would like virtuals or any marketing resources, please connect with our team. We would love the opportunity to help you help your clients get back to building and strengthening their brands during this time. As we move forward, please know that our number one priority is taking care of you, our clients, and each other here at Tekweld. We are committed to providing you with the level of service you deserve while continuing to keep our employees safe. This means practicing safe social distancing, continuing to sanitize work areas, and properly outfitting employees with the equipment they need to do their jobs and feel confident about their health and safety while doing it.

      In order to emerge from this unique time in our country's history, it is the companies and individuals who take charge and push forward with an attitude of optimism that will help to breathe life back into this industry. We’re here for you, ready to make it happen. We also know that by partnering with each other we can all come back even stronger than we started. Let’s work together to make it happen. #PromoStrong

      Sincerely,

      Taylor Tadmor
      President, Tekweld
