Coronavirus / COVID-19 Information
Putting people first is our normal course of business.
When things aren’t business as usual, we’re here to navigate challenging and unprecedented times with you – together. The Holman Way of doing business guides us to treat our people, business partners, and the community at large with respect and care. That empathetic mindset is the compass guiding our collective response to COVID-19.
Auto Truck Group is considered an essential business. We continue to be fully operational and we’ve executed continuity procedures to support your upfitting and manufacturing needs without compromising the safety of our people. This includes transitioning our office-based workforce to remote workstations, and expanding flexible shifts to decrease volume and increase distance for onsite personnel.
On a daily basis, we’re engaging with industry suppliers and distributors to identify any possible service disruptions. We will continue to update this page with the latest information.
Auto Truck Group and our business partners are closely monitoring the impact that COVID-19 is having on our industry. We will continue to communicate directly with our clients, and we will update this page with new information as we receive it.
Vehicle operators are strongly encouraged to take the following precautions
Everyone should follow the guidelines published by the World Health Organization and US Center for Disease Control to limit the spread of cornoavirus and COVID-19. In addition to those recommendations, we strongly encourage vehicle operators to take these additional precautions:
- Wash your hands. Vehicle operators should wash their hands for 20 seconds with soap and water every time they stop and exit the vehicle. If soap and water is not available, they can use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Disinfect your vehicle. Vehicle operators should disinfect their vehicles by wiping them down with soap and water or a cleaning solution made specifically for vehicles. Do not use bleach or alcohol-based cleaners on leather surfaces, and be careful of getting water or other liquid near electronics. Vehicle operators should wear disposable gloves when disinfecting, and discard them after each use. They should also pay extra attention to parts of the vehicle that are touched frequently: steering wheels, control knobs, door handles, seat belts, and keys.
- Keep your vehicle neat. Vehicle operators can limit the spread of the coronavirus by limiting the number of items they bring in and out of their vehicles. These items should be cleaned and disinfected, and drivers should wash their hands after doing so.
Manufacturer plants are coming back online and businesses are returning to work. The upfitting and supply chain experts at Auto Truck Group and ARI are closely monitoring the industry and will be posting resources here to help you navigate this new landscape.
