COVID-19 Statement


Dear Valued Customers, Stakeholders and Communities,

The current situation and the dynamically changing conditions around COVID-19 present us all with new challenges. At HMC the Coronavirus/COVID-19 crisis is under continuous reevaluation and for us, keeping a close watch on daily developments is of utmost importance. Protecting and safeguarding the health of our employees, suppliers and communities close by is our first priority while we continue to strive to ensure a smooth and unimpeded production flow.

Safety measures

  • Increased and intensified cleaning cycles at all locations and have instructed our staff to take preventive hygienic measures (thoroughly washing hands, social distancing and avoiding physical contact).
  • Thermoscan equipment and hand gel at all locations.
  • Established thorough protocols for attending to any suspected or actual COVID-19 cases which may occur.
  • Limit significantly the access of external visitors and promote communicating digitally instead.
  • Prohibit overseas business travelling and refrain from any travel to locations of officially designated high-risk.
  • Provide mask to all staff to protect themselves and protect others.

Production outlook
  • Our production across the entire PP portfolio will continue to run as planned and will not be affected by the COVID-19 crisis.
  • We do not foresee shortages regarding the supply chains of our feedstocks, additives and other required materials.

Shipping and logistics
  • Our warehouse staff follow strict safety protocols regarding contact with outside logistics personnel and incoming goods. We also ensure our contracted shipping and logistics service providers operate using the same stringent safety measures as those in place for HMC. Any problems relating to the timing or frequency of deliveries are not expected.

HMC will continue to keep you updated regarding any further developments as well as any additional measures taken. Our sincere thanks for your support and your confidence in HMC Polymers. Take care of yourself and family and stay healthy.

Sincerely Yours,

Siridech Kumvongdee
