By: Greg Owens, Co-Founder & CEO of Sherrill Manufacturing/Liberty Tabletop
SHERRILL, N.Y. – Due to updated guidance from New York State via the Empire State Development Website and in accordance with not just the rules but the interests of our employees, community and customers we have scaled back operations in manufacturing and shipping to only those products that directly support the U.S. military as part of our GSA contract. The situation remains very fluid. Our highest priority is the safety of our employees, community and our customers. As a company we are going to do everything we can to ensure not only strict compliance with the rules but compliance with the “spirit of the rules”.
The impact on customers will be as follows:
1. We will continue to provide uninterrupted supply to our U.S. Military through our GSA contract.
2. We will continue to accept orders on our website for Liberty Tabletop product and ship those orders as soon as governance from the State of New York allows us to do so. Your continued patronage in support of our employees and our company is greatly appreciated. We have plenty of inventory. Our “staystrong15” discount will remain in effect to help all concerned weather this storm.
3. For the moment we will unfortunately have to suspend shipments via the Amazon platform due to their guaranteed shipping policies.
In addition to these steps we have reached out to the Federal and State Governments regarding our company’s capabilities and offered to help provide other essential services to the effort if requested. As we all know manufacturing capacity in the United States has been decimated by outsourcing to other countries. At Sherrill Manufacturing we survived the great recession and plan on doing so again through this crisis. We will then form part of the remaining American manufacturing base that will be establishing a manufacturing resurgence here in the United States. Stay strong and buy American!
