I want to share an update on what Berlin Food & Lab Equipment is doing to keep our customers and
our people safe while maintaining a Minimal Basic Operations Per Section 10 Part (G) & maintaining social distancing.
Berlin Food & Lab Equipment is following the guidance of global health experts at the World Health
Organization (WHO), U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) & Local San Mateo County Public
Health & Safety Code 12095 on preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus. We are reminding our
employees about frequent hand washing, wearing masks, gloves, sanitizing, and we are regularly cleaning and disinfecting our facilities, and equipment. Importantly, we are asking that our employees stay home from work if they feel sick or have been in contact with anyone that is or has been sick.
Many people are asking the same question: Is it safe to receive and handle a stainless equipment
shipments? The WHO and CDC have stated that the likelihood of catching the COVID-19 virus by
touching cardboard or other equipment during shipping is low. We will be maintaining a thorough
cleaning and wipe down before shipments leave the facility, and implore our customers to also
thoroughly wipe down using standard cleaning protocol before equipment is accepted into their
facilities. Currently We will not be shipping equipment or receiving equipment unless we are given essential operation notification authorization, and we have written authorization from the city/county to do so.
When will Berlin Re-Open? We are currently shooting for an essential operation authorization by 3/23/20. That will be posted here as soon as its been authorized. we will send out a notification at that time. Currently all non-essential operations such as residential & commercial have been paused. We are currently only serving the Biotech, Pharmaceutical & Healthcare Industries.
Berlin has long been a trusted partner in the biotech, pharmaceutical & Life Science communities
Not only in the Greater Bay Area but nationwide & around the world. As with other humanitarian
crisis events, we are helping with relief related to COVID-19 and will continue to seek opportunities
to assist our communities in need.
We thank all of our valued Clients & Partners for your patients while we navigate through this
difficult time, and appreciate your continued trust in Berlin Food & lab Equipment Company.
