Walker Glass Company Ltd. 
In response to the COVID-19 

Dear Walker Customers, Suppliers and Partners,

Please be advised that as of Monday April 13th, 2020 Walker Glass will begin to resume its operations. This shall occur regardless of whether the government-imposed closure is prolonged or not, notably because Walker is a supplier to businesses recognised as essential by the closure decree.

In order to serve you in the most efficient manner possible, Walker asks that you send your orders and quotations promptly to our Customer Service team, and that you include any special requests therein. It is critical that we understand your product and shipping requirements as we adjust our operational capacity to meet your needs over the coming weeks.

As we re-open our operations, please note that it is equally important that we tend to the safety and health of all workers by enforcing compliance with all applicable government directives and guidelines.

Again, our thoughts are with you during these uncertain times as we work collectively to prevent further spread of this virus. Our sentiments are with those who have been directly affected by COVID-19.          

 

Sincerely,

 

Lee Harrison

President,
Walker Glass Company Ltd.
