Anixter President & CEO Update on COVID-19
Adapting to Better Serve You as We Prepare to Return to Work

May 26, 2020

Dear Customers,

From the start of the COVID-19 outbreak, we have directed our energies at maintaining the health and well-being of our employees, customers, suppliers and communities. While enacting a broad work-from-home policy with many of our employees and establishing vigorous safety protocols with our warehouse partners, we have also remained open for business. Throughout these challenging weeks, Anixter has continued to supply “essential businesses” in markets such as energy, healthcare and public safety, government, telecommunications and cloud computing services, while protecting the health of our employees.

As businesses around the world begin taking initial steps to return to work, we understand that the workplace is evolving to meet new regulations and guidelines, and that our customers are adapting to new onsite safety protocols, labor constraints and technologies. Having established new safety measures in our own facilities designed to safeguard our associates as they maintain critical business continuity, we understand the challenges customers are facing with these jarring disruptions to timelines and budgets. We want you to know that we are here to help.
