Over the past few weeks, we have witnessed some extraordinary events unfold as a result of the COVID-19 virus. Some companies have faced supply chain disruptions as a result. At Aripack, we supply imported and domestic flexible and rigid packaging as well as packaging equipment . We are following the situation closely with our suppliers and our goal is to provide our customers with an uninterrupted supply of packaging components. Our suppliers are fully operational and there are no restrictions on goods flowing into the United States.

Our plants have put measures in place with the workforce to minimize and prevent contamination, including, but not limited to:
