Farwest COVID-19 Plan

Farwest Steel Valued Customer,

Farwest has received many customer notices and inquiries regarding operations, supply chain continuity, and person-to-person contact associated with developments of COVID-19. Below is a brief update from Farwest on each topic:

Farwest Operations – All Farwest facilities and shifts are operating as normal with no anticipated curtailments. 

Farwest Supply Chain – Farwest has a robust steel inventory and sees no disruptions to our established supply chains over the short, medium or long-term ranges.

Person-to-Person Contact – Although there are no known COVID-19 cases at any Farwest location, safety is our top priority. Farwest has initiated additional protocols to minimize person-to-person transmission for all Farwest facilities.

In addition:

  • Our Outside Sales Representatives will be serving you from the office and will not be making normal customer visits. The duration will last through March and will be reassessed by each Farwest facility. Customers requiring onsite Sales and/or Quality support can be accommodated by scheduling an appointment.
  • Our Drivers will continue to make deliveries as scheduled but are being asked to observe safety procedures designed to minimize the risk of transmission.

If you have any questions regarding the above items, then please contact your sales representative. Farwest will keep you updated on any pertinent developments. Please keep us informed if the situation at your organization changes.

Thank you for your business and we are committed to being a metals solution that drives your success.

Safe Regards,


Farwest Steel
