SI-TEX Marine Electronics announced today that it is temporarily closing its Long Island, New York headquarters, in order to comply with a mandate from New York State Governor Andrew M. Cuomo that all “non-essential businesses” in the state halt work activities to help slow the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Per the government order, the SI-TEX office and warehouse facility at 25 Enterprise Zone Drive in the Riverhead neighborhood of Long Island is closed effective today, and will remain closed until the order is lifted.
According to SI-TEX Vice President, Sales Allen Schneider, staff will be working remotely from home to answer questions from dealers or consumers, and orders will be handled as quickly as possible. Staffers will be checking and responding to emails, returning dealer/customer phone messages and, as much as is possible, conducting business as usual during this challenging period.
“SI-TEX is known coast-to-coast as a company that is eager to help customers solve problems, and we’re going to strive to uphold that reputation,” said Schneider. “These are uncharted waters for all of us, but if we do our part we can ‘weather the storm’ and emerge on the other side sooner, rather than later. I know the SI-TEX family is up to this unparalleled challenge and is fully committed to being part of the solution. After all, we all want to get back on the water as soon as possible,” added Schneider.
