Viskase COVID-19 Response

Dear Valued Customers and Business Partners,

During these challenging times we at Viskase hope this message finds you well. Our top priority has always been the health and safety of our employees, customers, partners and our communities. In these unprecedented times we are focused on ensuring the well-being of our people while continuing to meet the needs of our customers. With one of the largest footprints in the industry, our operations remain strong and continuous across the globe as we deliver the products and services you’ve come to expect from Viskase.

As the situation evolves, we want to assure you that Viskase is modifying the ways we work to meet a very challenging environment. As such, we have instituted several policies across the organization to protect the health and safety of our teams, while minimizing the risk of disruption to our business. We have been proactively reviewing our global and local contingency plans to ensure continuity of operations. We have updated internal protocols, including banning all non-critical domestic and international business travel, implemented remote work policies across multiple locations, increased the frequency of sanitation and sterilization at our manufacturing and office facilities, instituted monitoring temperatures of employees prior to entering our facilities and restricting access to our facilities from outside visitors and contractors. These protocols are aligned with the specific guidelines of local health and government entities in the countries we operate, the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization.

We are working hard during this fluid situation to ensure continuity of supply and the safety of our people. Do not hesitate to reach out to your Viskase representative should you have any questions.
