We are All in This Together...Spectrum Plastics' Response to COVID-19
Alpharetta, GA - 19 March 2020 - In concert with our global society, Spectrum Plastics Group (SPG) is closely monitoring information on the spread of COVID-19 and taking proactive measures to ensure that the needs of our customers, our employees and our communities are met. SPG is developing appropriate action plans for business continuity in accordance with guidance from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We are implementing protective measures globally for our products, our customers, our people and to mitigate the spread of this virus.
Spectrum Plastics Group is a critical supplier to the Medical, Food and Defense Industries. Our facilities around the world operate in the supply chain that keeps our society healthy, nourished and protected. In these unprecedented times, several local, state and national authorities are imposing shelter in place and lockdown orders. However, due to the criticality of the product supply chains we support, SPG will continue to operate our facilities in order to provide products required to address the needs of our communities.
As a precautionary measure, until further notice we are suspending all customer visits to our facilities. SPG will promote the use of video and web conferencing tools as an alternative. Further, SPG has suspended all employee travel and implemented quarantine procedures pursuant to recommended guidelines.
SPG will also continue to evaluate risk to our raw materials, supply chain, and internal manufacturing processes with updates provided as necessary.
Raw Material and Supply Chain details:
- Our reviews have determined at this time a low risk to supply chain disruption due to COVID-19.

Communicable Disease Policy and Facility details:
