The components produced in its facilities are used to support utilities, power grids, medical facilities, government offices, food services, data centers, and other vital information technology infrastructure. Additionally, SEPCO products support a wide range of exempted industries and sectors, such as aerospace, logistics and transportation, PPE product manufacturing, chemical processing and refining, mining, water and wastewater treatment, and military applications.

Recently issued guidance from the President states, “If you work in a critical infrastructure industry, as defined by the DHS … you have a special responsibility to maintain your normal work schedule.” Additionally, the DHS issued a memorandum reiterating this directive and identifying workers who conduct a range of operations and services that are essential to continued critical infrastructure viability to ensure the continuity of functions critical to public health and safety, the economy, and national security.

Because SEPCO is a critical manufacturer, its team continues to operate (with appropriate CDC recommended safety precautions including social distancing) to support its customers who are providing essential public services. The team remains committed to slowing the spread of COVID-19 while supporting some of the world’s most important infrastructure needs.
