AFL Response - COVID-19 - March 17, 2020

Dear Valued AFL Associates, Customers & Suppliers ~

AFL is closely monitoring the dynamics of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and continues to take necessary steps to mitigate the impact on the health and safety of our associates and customers, as well as global business operations.

In addition to implementing all mandates defined by global/national/local authorities, we have assembled our own global task force that is monitoring the rapidly-evolving Coronavirus situation and communicating transparently. We currently have many of associates working remotely and have limited access to our facilities by those potentially at risk. Our global AFL travel bans have been extended to meet requirements and all local company and industry event participation is cancelled.

Currently, we are not experiencing significant threats to our supply chain even with new developments and logistical challenges seen around the globe. We were able to get in front of many of these issues and this has proven beneficial. AFL uses dual-sourcing for most components and assembly operations in multiple geographies. However, with the possibility of government-ordered factory shutdowns to limit the spread of the Coronavirus, the impact on production cannot be predicted.

We will continue to evaluate all options to minimize disruption to your business. Please contact your local AFL representative with any questions or issues with any/ all current orders in process.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we all work through this situation together.
~ AFL Executive Leadership Team
