Emergency preparedness for COVID-19.
How SharkBite is Preparing & Responding
Over the last few weeks, we have all seen swift changes affect our everyday lives as well as many around the globe because of COVID-19, and we at RWC are responding accordingly. Our top priority is to protect everyone’s health and safety. We have assembled a COVID-19 response task force and are monitoring the situation every day, hour by hour. As we do, we plan to communicate with you periodically about any operational changes that may be required.
How is supply chain being impacted by COVID-19?
Our factories and distribution centers remain staffed and operational. We are taking additional safety precautions in our facilities to help protect the health and safety of our employees. With our in-house manufacturing capabilities, global supply chain and inventory positions, we remain confident in our ability to service your needs. Given the rapidly changing pandemic situation, we will communicate any supply updates that may arise.
Where can I get SharkBite products?
Since plumbing has been listed as “essential” under the presidential policy and the Department of Homeland Security emergency readiness programs, many of our wholesale and retail partners remain open. We recommend calling in advance to make sure they are open and have the products you need in stock. Also, many of our wholesale and retail partners offer online shopping options for your convenience and safety.
