COVID-19 Update: Purolite Corporation is 100% Operational

March 24, 2020

Purolite Corporation is 100% operational at this time of crisis and we are taking the necessary precautions to ensure the health and safety of our employees, suppliers and customers.

As defined by US Homeland Security, Purolite products are essential to maintaining critical infrastructure of industries such as power, pharmaceutical and water. Purolite continues to serve industry needs across the globe as the leading chemical manufacturer of ion exchange, catalyst, adsorbent and specialty high-performance resins.

On March 19, 2020, President Trump issued an updated Coronavirus Guidance for the United States of America. The guidance states that:

“If you work in the critical infrastructure industry, as defined by the Department of Homeland Security, such as healthcare services and pharmaceutical and food supply, you have a special responsibility to maintain your normal work schedule.”

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security developed a list of “Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers” to help determine those businesses that should continue normal operations. The list specifically includes critical manufacturing “workers necessary for the manufacturing of materials and products needed for medical supply chains, and for supply chains associated with transportation, energy, communications, food and agriculture, chemical manufacturing, nuclear facilities, the operation of dams, water and wastewater treatment, emergency services, and the defense industrial base.”

This is consistent with state and local mandates, which have similarly exempted the chemical manufacturing sectors from shelter-in-place orders. For your reference, the communication from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security may be found here. In accordance with the President’s mandate, our operations will continue to run.

Customer service is here to answer your questions, our manufacturing sites located Romania, China, U.K. and U.S.A are operating, and our sales team is available for technical support via phone call or video conferencing.

We are taking all precautions and care to follow the governmental guidance and recommendations to include:
