To support the fight against COVID-19, Planar is offering essential services to members of the AV community who support critical businesses, including donations of the company’s desktop monitors, free maintenance, warranty extensions and online delivery of CTS-certified Planar Academy technology training courses.
Planar also donated personal protective equipment (PPE) to hospitals in Oregon, including a total of 5,000 medical face masks to Legacy Health, Oregon Health & Science University Hospital, and Adventist Medical Center.
“Today, we are more committed than ever before to support our customers and community in the fight against the COVID-19 outbreak,” Planar Executive VP of Sales, Marketing and Pro Services, Adam Schmidt, said. “These are trying times for all and being able to provide essential services that help protect our first responders and maintain day-to-day business operations for our customers and resellers offers a sense of hope that everyone needs right now.”
In addition to the company’s donations, Planar is enforcing aggressive social distancing and disinfecting practices for employees in the company’s factories and in the field. To help minimize the risk of disease spreading, the company has altered shift schedules to minimize employee interaction and is reserving resources to sanitize equipment and the facility in between shifts.
To further help prevent the spread of COVID-19, Planar is educating customers and resellers on the simple steps they can take to disinfect Planar LCD and LED displays. For more information on sanitizing Planar display solutions from bacteria and viruses, visit www.planar.com/blog.
