Business Operations in Response to COVID-19
As we continue to monitor the evolving impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have taken the necessary steps to safeguard the health and well-being of our employees in accordance with protocols established by public health organizations and state and local public health departments while ensuring an uninterrupted flow of our mission critical products serving medical device, first responder, public safety, energy and national security customers. We have received letters from several large customers serving these essential markets thanking us for our efforts and confirming their dependence on our continued supply of products during this critical time.
Based on the recent State and Federal government mandates, Ultralife Corporation will maintain normal operations across all locations during the COVID-19 emergency response. In accordance with the Executive Order from the Governor of the State of New York, Ultralife falls under the criteria of an “Essential Supplier” due to our production and supply of battery and energy products that support ventilators, respirators, and other vital medical, surgical and life-saving equipment, and is a Federal government contractor/subcontractor to the U.S. Military, other Federal agencies as well as first responders, for a variety of products that support tactical communications, emergency equipment, cybersecurity solutions, and other strategic requirements. Ultralife also falls under the criteria of a “Critical Infrastructure Industry” as defined by the Department of Homeland Security, and has a special responsibility to maintain our normal work schedule in supporting the essential products and services required to meet national security commitments to the Federal Government and U.S. Military.
We are collectively rising to meet the challenges presented by this unprecedented pandemic and remain dedicated to working closely with our customers and suppliers to support public health and national security needs.
