Borghi USA has provided the following statement from Carlos R. Petzold, President:
Borghi USA, Inc. located in Aberdeen, Maryland provides spare parts and technical support for machinery brands: Borghi, Osmas and Unimac to brush, broom and mop manufacturing companies throughout the USA and Canada. We have been deemed an “essential business” for which the Maryland government order provides exception to the closure.
Our customers have also deemed us as a critical supplier, so they can continue to produce their cleaning products as they are essential businesses that supply cleaning and sanitation products to hundreds of thousands of other essential businesses, including hospitals and medical care facilities, medical supply companies and the defense, aerospace, energy, food processing and equipment industries, and others in the supply chain. Products from our industry keep hospitals and health care workers clean, safe and protected against infection.
Borghi USA, Inc. will continue to remain open during this period of nonessential businesses closures as well as if the Government issues a “shelter at home” order. Unless the Government closes “essential businesses”, we will continue to support the Brush Industry to provide the goods and services that our customers require to help with the sanitation and protection of the public health and other important uses for Brush Industry Products.
Furthermore, all of our people at Borghi USA have been instructed to follow all of the new safety protocols issued by the CDC and OSHA and look forward to further guidance from local, state, and federal authorities so we can maintain safe and secure operations while continuing to serve the country and our customers in this time of great need.
We stand together in combating the COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you and keep safe and keep up the important work you perform.
