Dear Valued partners/employees
I would like to reach out to you all during these very trying times.
Our number one priority is to ensure the continued health and safety of our staff, our partners, our customers and our vendors. We are committed to working to contain the spread of the Covid-19 virus. We are following every recommended precaution and preventative action to from the WHO and CDC.
As the global battle against the COVID-19 virus rages, we have gone to a WFO policy where possible, however all 8 locations continue to operate, albeit a bit differently today. As states and countries go on lockdown we are moving work to other locations to ensure the first responders, health professionals and essential services can continue to operate while being properly identified with the correct protective clothing and PPE; We will continue to support the needs of our customers as long as it's deemed safe and permissible. During this time, we must do our part in supporting our communities and following government health department guidelines, such as Social Distancing, stepping up personal hygiene practices, avoiding large events or crowds.
As far as our supply chain, we have increased all inventories over 200% to ensure there is no interruption in materials and goods during the next 3 months. This is a precautionary measure in an effort to ensure continuity should there be unanticipated interruptions.
Our country is strong, and we will recover. The World Emblem family will be there with you.

As a member of the World Emblem family, I wanted to reach out and share that there's nothing more important to me than your health and well-being and the health and well-being of our clients, vendors and team members. In the midst of the rapidly evolving impacts of COVID-19, I want to reassure you that our team is here for you.
Here's what you can expect from us:
- Your Safety: For your safety and the safety of our teams we will not be traveling for the next 30 days. All sales, Territory Account Managers and Operations staff will either be working remotely or in their local branches
- Expert Virtual Systems: Organizations such as ours a very adept at virtual meetings and trainings. We use tools like Zoom and MS Teams to help you and our staff and keep the business properly operating. Please reach out to your TAM or sales representative if you have needs or questions.
- Contingency Planning: Being a South Florida based business for over 25 years, and having to endure hurricanes annually, we have developed a completely redundant infrastructure, from Technology to Supply Chain. As of now we are running full shifts and will continue to operate under CDC and WHO recommended guidelines.
We understand that without our products, the pharmacies, grocery stores and EMS personally will not have clothing to perform their work and how vitally important we are to the general economy. Rest assured that in addition to the health and safety of my family and my team, your well-being and the health of the general economy is top of mind for me. If there’s anything we can do for you, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.
