Fluid Management’s production, distribution and field service operations are deemed a part of the essential supply chain in providing products and services to paint and hardware retail stores.

We will continue to work with our supply chain and service partners to minimize disruptions or delays by having in place: (i) plans to protect the health of their employees; and (ii) minimize any downstream impact from COVID-19 to Fluid Management, our customers and to proactively communicate to Fluid Management any issues that may arise.
