The purpose of this letter is to inform you of the effects of the COVID-19 surge in Orange County, CA on our Anaheim, CA facility. As of Tues, January 12th, the county remains in the Purple tier of COVID-19 risk mitigation. As an essential business, we are allowed to remain open but have taken the additional step to require non-production and production support staff to remain working from home. However, we have seen a significant increasing trend in overall impacts both at Cristek and at our supply chain base.

As of today, Cristek’s production labor availability is down 22% with absences continuing to increase since our return from break. Reasons for absences remain various including self-imposed quarantine, difficulty in securing childcare and other concerns. Cristek is seeing little indication of spread within the facility, but we remain proactive to ensure all employees’ health and safety is protected.

Like much of Southern California and New England, as well as the country at large, Cristek has seen an increase of various COVID‐19 impacts significantly challenging our ability to maintain normal operation of our business. We remain open and operational as our safety procedures meet or exceed CDC guidelines and we continue to review every procedure to ensure the health of all Cristek employees.


However, the increase in cases and the related impacts are causing delays at both the supplier and production levels within the Cristek value stream. We are monitoring each impact diligently and attempting to reduce or remove the risk of schedule impacts, but the uncertain and ever‐changing nature of each situation makes is difficult to precisely predict the scope of the impact or to offer potential recovery.
