October 2020 COVID-19 Update
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect businesses and communities. Brewer Science continues to operate with safety measures in place, ensuring our employees’ health and safety while still meeting the demand and quality standards our valued customers require.
Earlier this year, we established internal teams to help navigate the continually changing landscape created by COVID-19 to meet our goal of complying with the latest guidelines and regulations to maintain a low-risk work environment. We have made several policy changes, implemented physical measures, and adjusted our partner relationships. Actions include:
- Implementing a remote work policy
- Facility visitor/contractor restrictions
- Employee temperature monitoring
- Room occupancy restrictions and increased air exchange
- Implemented supply risk solutions for supplier business continuity plan
- Increased supply safety stock
- Testing partnership with local health providers
We continue to exercise recommended masking and social distancing guidelines, and as a result, the Brewer Science family has experienced a minimal impact directly from COVID-19. We have no plans to reduce these requirements through the end of 2020, but continually monitor the situation and respond accordingly.
In our continued efforts to support our community during this time, we sourced raw materials, manufactured, and bottled hand sanitizer for donation to local police and fire departments, ambulance districts, daycares, and schools. We are proud and thankful for the Brewer Science employees that participated in this endeavor. Watch an interview with our manufacturing team who led this effort.

Every business has felt the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Travel restrictions, working remotely, and social distancing are all now common changes that were thrust upon us this year.
Brewer Science was prepared and ready for these changes. With the support and spirit of our employees, we quickly adapted to a work-from-home and work-from-facility structure. We continue to focus on our employees’ safety, maintaining our high-class operational capabilities, and delivering appropriate service, security, and confidentiality for our customers and industry partners.
For Brewer Science, it was and continues to be, the well-being and needs of our employees, their families, our communities, and customers that drives our leadership’s decisions during these times. We must also respect the environment we operate in and our governments’ requirements on an international scale. We strive to maintain a high level of stewardship by providing all of our employees with cloth masks and making donations to our local hospitals.
We’ve worked hard to stay connected to each other and our customers and partners throughout this time. While we continue to operate under these policies, we’ve developed a phased approach and tiered criteria as we work toward our team fully returning to the facilities while maintaining a low risk and highly productive working environment for the Brewer Science family.
We heard from one significant global customer, thanking us for our outstanding support during Q1 and the ongoing pandemic. We are committed to doing the same for all our customers, serving you safely, and continuing to fulfill orders on time.
While our work has not stopped as the coronavirus impacts the global community, we have made significant adjustments to ensure we meet our customers’ evolving needs.
To serve our customers while protecting the health and safety of our employees, we have implemented both work-from-home protocols, where security and confidentiality are assured, and a work-from-a-company office or facility policies where specialized processes have been enacted including social distancing and the highest standards of sanitization.
As a result of these protocols, our customers’ orders are being fulfilled safely and on time.
Our dedicated employees will meet the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic with professionalism, putting safety and health first, to ensure our products meet or exceed our industry’s highest standards of excellence.
