112 PCB007 MAGAZINE I APRIL 2020 thing that keeps me up at night. Are we doing all the right things? Even though we're an es- sential supplier, is that in the best interest of our people and our employees and all of their families to continue manufacturing? I think it is. It helps keep people's brains active. And obviously, the financial impacts of not work- ing for a lot of people outweigh the potential health risks. But just, are we doing enough as a business leader, to ensure that all 120 of our employees and their families are going to get through this healthy and happy and alive? Johnson: Great. Matt, thank you for taking the time to talk. Stevenson: You're welcome. It's a very top of mind topic, and this is one that is near and dear to all of us, I'm sure, throughout the whole en- tire country and any perspective that I can give you, I'd be happy to. Johnson: Thanks for that. I appreciate it. PCB007 Cirexx International announced that despite a Califor- nia lockdown order, the company was notified by several defense contractors and the Department of Defense that they need to remain open and operational during the CO- VID-19 crisis due to the number of DPAS DX and D0 rated orders and critical medical components orders for the electronic health care industry. Workers not directly re- lated to printed wiring board manufacturing are working from home, but the Cirexx production operation is at near- ly 100%. Philipp Menges, Cirexx President and CEO released the following statement: During this time of uncertainty as our country grap- ples with the COVID-19 virus situation, I want to reach out to you and ensure you that Cirexx International is committed to the continued support of requirements that relate to our National Security and National Health infrastructure for the benefit of our country and our customers. Over the past several weeks, we have quickly ad- opted significant strategic measures specifically de- signed to address this crisis. As a result, Cirexx cur- rently has the resources necessary—a strong-tenured and available staff, the highest technology equipment, and an ample supply of raw materials—for the smooth continuity for our production efforts. We have custom- er service personnel available to discuss every aspect of your printed wiring board quotes and orders. Cirexx is also working very closely with its supply chain to assure uninterrupted service of all necessary raw ma- terials and consumables necessary for our operation. My staff stands prepared to assist you with any as- pects of your PWB requirements and ensure that you get the full force of the Cirexx advantage to meet your needs. I am confident in their abilities, and our collec- tive will to support your programs. Please feel free to contact me concerning any issue related to this situ- ation. Thank you for your time and interest in Cirexx International. We are specifically well stocked with a significant number of "exotic" and hard to obtain raw materials, including rigid and flexible dielectric/copper combi- nations from manufacturers such as Rogers, Dupont, Isola, Panasonic, and Arlon. These materials allow us to meet most, if not all, of the critical existing and new requirements that are necessary during this crisis in a quickturn mode. Customers can contact their salesperson for up- dates on production status or for new item quotations and evaluations or visit cirexx.com.
