A Message from Wheeler Bros. Regarding COVID-19
In the midst of our nation’s response to the Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19), we want you to know that Wheeler Bros. is committed to the health and well-being of our customers, associates, and partners. We are monitoring the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), government agencies, and our own internal teams to stay on top of this evolving situation.
We want you to feel confident that Wheeler Bros. is prepared to support your fleet needs. Rest assured we have people and inventory in place to handle this situation.
First and foremost, we are still open. You may have heard that Pennsylvania has closed all non-essential businesses, but Wheeler Bros. is considered an essential supplier of items to first responders, the national defense and the U.S. Postal Service. This has not affected our operations.
As a stocking distributor we currently have a significant supply of parts ready to ship, and amidst this crisis, we are working with our supply base to bring in additional safety stock so we can continue to provide our world-class service levels. So far, we haven’t experienced any abnormal delays from our suppliers, and we will continue to monitor our supply chain partners and communicate any potential issues to you.
On the people front, our associates are following all CDC guidelines to prevent and, if necessary, contain any spread of the virus. This includes frequent hand sanitizing and washing, sanitizing work surfaces, door handles, and other commonly-touched surfaces. We have suspended all travel in and out of our operations in Somerset, PA and Grand Prairie, TX. Where possible, our teams are working remotely to ensure that we can continue our support to you, uninterrupted. We are prepared to navigate this situation with everyone’s safety and security at the forefront of all we do. We will be monitoring this developing situation closely and will update you as necessary.
Your fleet is essential to supply hospitals, grocery stores, warehouses and so many more, and Wheeler Bros. is committed to keep your fleet running! Please do not hesitate to contact us at 800-636-4365 or visit WheelerFleet.com for online ordering.
Thank you for your trust in Wheeler Bros.!
