Stauffer COVID-19 Coronavirus Update

March 18th, 2020

To our valued customers,

Thank you for your business as we remain committed to serving your PPE and safety equipment needs. As the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to disrupt both businesses and our personal lives, we wanted to share an update on our efforts to keep our customers operational and contribute to the containment of COVID-19.


Production in China has begun to rebound, however many factories are still not at full capacity and a backlog of orders remains. Additionally, a rapid increase of consumer demand has disrupted the supply of other products as COVID-19 has spread in the USA. The current affected products are listed below:

  • Respirators and dust masks (disposable, half mask, full mask, cartridges, parts)
  • Disposable Gloves (latex, nitrile, vinyl)
  • Disposable Clothing (including coveralls)
  • Goggles
  • Hand Sanitizers
  • Paper Products (toilet paper)

*This list is subject to change as the situation develops.

We have increased production and inventories from key suppliers to meet demand as best as possible. Our top priority remains the commitment to keeping consistent supply for existing customers that rely on these products to operate.


Existing Customers – Orders will be filled based on previous usage from 2019 for affected products. Orders above these quantities will not be accepted or revised.

New Customers – We are not accepting any new customers on the affected products and will not be able to fill orders.
