Ask ASMC Weekly Mailbag: Week of March 23rd

Posted by Michael on 23rd Mar 2020

With so much uncertainty about the coronavirus (also known as COVID-19), this blog entry will be dedicated to hours operation and next steps as it pertains to ASMC Industrial:

Henry asks: I see that you are located in IL.  The governor recently enacted a "shelter-in-place" proclamation.  Are you remaining open?

Great question Henry.  On Friday, the governor of Illinois J.B. Pritzker enacted a "shelter-in-place" for all citizens beginning on Saturday March 21st at 5:00 PM.  ASMC is a supplier of essential fastener and components to multiple entities that are considered "essential critical infrastructure."  Therefore, we WILL remain open and have our normal operating hours of 8:00 AM-5:00 PM Monday-Friday.  

Troy asks: How will the COVID-19 outbreak affect lead times of shipments?  Can we expect orders to ship by their estimated date?

As of now Troy, unless something drastic were to happen with our supply chain and the partners we have throughout the fastener industry, we do not expect any sort of delay in either shipment or lead times at this time.  Should something change, we will certainly let everyone know appropriately.

Amy asks: Does ASMC Industrial have a statement regarding COVID-19 that we can read and if so, where can we find that information?

Thank you for your question Amy.  If you go back to the March 20th ASMC Industrial press release found here on the blog, you can find a copy of our statement regarding COVID-19.  Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact our sales team either by phone (888-660-0334) or email (

We look forward to continuing to serve you for all your fastener needs.

-The team at ASMC Industrial
