Leveraging its expertise in a variety of services and capabilities ranging from product development, supply line expertise, to packaging and kitting, TEAM Technologies is planning to help produce 3 million kits by the end of the year and increase to 3 million per month and beyond as long as tests are needed.

TEAM Technologies COVID-19 Public Communication

Customers, Colleagues and Friends:

Around the country, we are seeing “Shelter at Home” and “Safer at Home” orders from state and local authorities directing that residents stay at home during the Covid-19 virus outbreak, unless you work for a business that is considered essential to support the community or is part of the Unites States’ critical infrastructure. Certain of these orders have been issued in locations where we have operating facilities. Our diverse business provides many essential products and supports other businesses in their provision of essential products and services. As such, TEAM Technologies operations will remain open while we practice elevated safety measures for all team members, which we detail below.

Many of TEAM’s customers fall into the categories listed in the orders that are being implemented across the country as companies that manufacture, distribute and/or provide supplies for medical devices, diagnostics, equipment, services, pharmaceutical supplies, other healthcare related supplies, as well as food supplies. As of today, we will remain open to assist these companies in keeping their supply chain intact as many of them help in the fight against this pandemic.

Protecting our TEAM Members

At TEAM Technologies, we want to do our part to flatten the curve and keep our employees and their families safe. We have taken a number of actions directed at this objective, including social distancing, awareness communications, personal hand hygiene communications, “stay at home with symptoms” guidelines, and staggered shifts, lunches and breaks to reduce the number of team members in proximity to each other. We have also increased the cleaning of workstations and the facilities at large and made sanitation and sterilization products available within our facilities. Until further notice we are prohibiting visitors to our facilities with the exception of parcel pickup and delivery and have halted all domestic and international travel for our team members. We have implemented work from home everywhere possible to further reduce the risk to our team members.

Moving Forward

Thank you for putting your trust in TEAM Technologies. It has been our pleasure to provide you solutions in the dental and medical fields over the last 32 years. We appreciate your patience as we navigate through this unprecedented pandemic and wish you all good health.
