This will be a synopsis of what we’ve heard from around our industry in regards to how the virus is impacting day-to-day business.
First and foremost, we wish everyone the best as they deal with getting through this crisis and we WILL get through it because the human spirit is strong in the worst of situations! And while many of us may feel we fall outside the high risk category, we all have someone near and dear to us who is at risk and we just need to keep that in perspective.
While this doesn’t have anything to do with petroleum, it sure does on a human level and it is helpful information regardless.

All Kennedy locations are still operating under normal business hours and as we get word in from around the industry, many of the manufacturers are as well. We have not heard from anyone who has shut down at this point. The biggest impact is on the various representatives who travel, with many businesses adhering to the restrictions on travel. There may also be some lead times impacted for large orders and special order items.
As we all know, this is an extremely fluid situation with changes occurring throughout the day, every day. If situations change, we will do our best to get word to you as quickly as we can. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at 1.800.451.4021.
We wish you all the best at getting through this global crisis.
The John W. Kennedy Company appreciates your business and continued support!
