Timber Products update to business status in response to COVID-19
Over the past few weeks, all our lives have been impacted by the spread of the COVID-19. As the situation continues to evolve, TP and its subsidiaries are following the recommendations of public health officials and government agencies to ensure the safety and well being of our employees, our clients and our community, all while continuing to serve the needs of our subscribers.
Beginning on March 18, 2020, all Timber Products employees who can work from home will do so through April 17, 2020.
Timber Products remains open for business with the following restrictions:
TP Field Inspection staff: Our field inspectors will only perform inspection work that is both urgent and in an area of low threat. Routine inspection work (E.G. - lumber, log home, WPM, Treating, Wood Pellets monthly inspections) will not be performed. Urgent inspections are loosely defined as inspections that are time-sensitive or project-sensitive for the client. These types of projects will be evaluated on an individual basis.
Laboratory Testing: Our Conyers laboratory facilities will remain open with limited staff. Samples will continue to be received and tested.
TP Engineering: All employees are currently working from home.
Our administrative staff in all locations will be working from home and are available by phone or email.
We will continue to monitor this situation and update you often.
If you have any questions, please call our main office at 770-922-8000.
We hope you and your loved ones stay safe and healthy.
Jay Moore, President
