We are reaching out to update our clients on our operations amidst the developing Coronavirus outbreak. On March 23, Washington State Governor Jay Inslee issued an order requiring residents of Washington State to "stay at home." We wish to assure you that First Priority Manufacturing has been deemed an essential service by the Washington State Department of Agriculture and Homeland Security emergency readiness programs. We want you to know that here at First Priority Manufacturing we will continue to consistently serve you with high-quality, safe products monitored by our strict cGMP protocols. Our team is fully operational and ready to answer any questions you may have.
To ensure you, as our valued customer, of the continuous safe supply of products, we will maintain our outstanding adherence to cGMP regulations along with implementing the following additional steps:
1. We have transitioned our available staff to remote locations and equipped our teams with appropriate resources to continue to providing uninterrupted service.
2. We have implemented appropriate social distancing measures for staff in all of our facilities.
3. We have always maintained a strict visitor policy. At this time though, we are not accepting visitors.
4. We have reemphasized our high standards of quality control with our amazing team and implemented additional coaching to assure both their safety and yours.
These steps are in addition to our highly successful environmental testing program. This program has been in place for the past ten years and has allowed us to monitor the effectiveness of our sanitation program throughout our facilities.
We will continue to keep you informed as we navigate this situation together.
We extend our best wishes for your health and safety.
Doug Baumgart, President
First Priority Manufacturing Inc.
