Bethlehem, PA-based Flexicon Corporation has been granted a waiver by the State of Pennsylvania to continue operating during the COVID-19 outbreak due to its role in the supply chain for life-sustaining businesses, the firm’s president, David Gill, announced this week.

“We successfully demonstrated that numerous Flexicon US customers operate in essential industries and rely on our equipment and parts to continue manufacturing vital products,” explained Gill.

Flexicon customers producing essential products operate in the food, spice, beverage, pharmaceutical, soap/cleanser, paper, plastics/rubber and chemical industries.

“We remain in close contact with our supply chain to ensure prompt delivery of components needed to complete orders, and with our logistics partners to deliver those orders on time,” said Gill. 

The company is safeguarding the health of employees through facility sanitizing, limiting personal contact, and allowing employees who work primarily online to do so remotely. Customers are urged to video conference in addition to email and phone. Flexicon’s manufacturing operations in the UK, Australia and South Africa also remain open and fully functional. 

The company manufactures bulk bag dischargers, bulk bag conditioners, drum fillers, drum/box/container dumpers, bag dump stations, flexible screw conveyors, tubular cable conveyors, pneumatic conveying systems, weigh batching and blending systems, and engineered plant-wide bulk handling systems with automated controls.
