In a message to its customers, the company said:
We are committed to the safety and well-being of our employees and our global communities. To this end, Aprinnova has implemented a work from home policy for all non-manufacturing employees in compliance with local public health authority. This will maximize our ability to continue to add value to our business partners’ efforts while ensuring employee safety. We will be postponing all planned public events, such as the Future of Clean Barcelona, until a later date, and are complying with all state, local and regional guidelines, and regulations regarding public gatherings.
In addition, even in the face of unstable markets, Aprinnova is committed to maintaining our core business continuity values. Please note the following:
• Aprinnova and our distributors currently maintain suitable volumes of Neossance Squalane and Hemisqualane inventory to meet the needs of our global customers through the end of 2020. We will support the smooth delivery of product and samples in coordination with our distribution partners, understanding that the delivery of goods may be affected by regionally based transportation guidelines and regulations.
• We understand the important work of new product development and ideation must continue, even during times of remote working and uncertainty. We will be offering enhanced online technical consultations and support and will ramp up our online webcast and resource offerings to support new product and applications development. These are available on our website. Our team is committed to the health and safety of all our employees and their families and we are also committed to the long-term delivery of high-quality products to meet our customer needs and commitments. For those who can continue work during these uncertain times, we are here to support you and, for those who are taking time away, we will be here to support you when you return.
