March 12, 2020: Etnyre International Ltd. would like to address the growing concerns over the Coronavirus (COVID-19). At this time, Etnyre plans on conducting daily operation as usual, while coping with any more news as it comes. We are taking the necessary precautions to keep our employees safe. Our organization is trying to keep a level head and make the right decisions.
However, with our upcoming customer schools (3/31-4/10), we have had to face a challenge that so many organizations are dealing with. For the time being, E.D. Etnyre & Co. has decided to postpone these schools. We understand that many of you look forward to this event each year and we always look forward to seeing you as well.
We currently do not have a set date to reschedule these schools but will readily do so when it seems like it is time. The E.D. Etnyre & Co. team will be in contact with all of the customers who were planning on coming to our plant. We extend our deepest apologies for any inconvenience this may cause, but we hope you understand that this decision has been made for the protection of yourselves, the customers we care so much for.
