  • Department of Homeland Security declares Brook & Whittle a Critical Infrastructure Industry Essential

The Department of Homeland Security declares Brook & Whittle a Critical Infrastructure Industry essential in the packaging supply chain.

What Does This Mean:

Brook & Whittle Ltd. plays an important role as a Coater, Printer & Converter of packaging materials servicing the Personal, Homecare, Medical, Food & Beverage sectors. Accordingly, our products and services have been categorized as Essential to Supply by the Department of Homeland Security, State and Local authorities. All five of our manufacturing sites fall under this category.

Understanding the critical role Brook & Whittle plays in the supply chain all our manufacturing facilities will remain operational. In order to meet all immediate and future requirements we have secured an additional two months of all essential raw materials, consumables and components. These items have been strategically located either onsite or nearby in order to quickly respond to changes in demand or supply disruption.

Brook & Whittle is ready to execute its Contingency Plan in the event of any individual site closure. This will enable us to quickly relocate artwork and raw materials within our portfolio for any item that is deemed Critical.

The health and well-being of our employees comes before all else; we continue to adhere to all CDC and WHO recommendations. In addition, we are in regular contact with State and Local authorities to ensure we are in receipt of the latest directives.

Our focus at this time is to continue to provide Essential labels while safeguarding the health and wellbeing of our employees. We recognize that the situation is fluid and accordingly have positioned ourselves to respond to the dynamic situation. However, please visit brookandwhittle.com for regular updates.

Our entire organization remains focused on helping our customers through this difficult period. We value your partnership and know that we will get through this together and be stronger having done so.

If you have any concerns or questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us via your sales representative.

Sincerely,

Becky Smith
Senior Vice President Sales & Marketing
