Coronavirus (COVID-19) Announcement to All Customers and Suppliers

Written by Ross DeFelice

Buschman manufactures coating rods and rod holders, which are consumable spare parts used on machines that spread liquid coatings on to paper for packaging in the following industries:

  • Food
  • Meat
  • Medicine

On March 22, 2020, the Ohio Department of Health issued an “Order that All Persons Stay at Home Unless Engaged in Essential Work or Activity”. That Order provided that all “Non-essential Business and Operations must cease… except Essential Businesses and Operations as defined” in that Order. The Order further provides that those businesses are “encouraged to remain open.”

The Order went on to define Essential Businesses and Operations (that are exempt from the cessation order) as “manufacturing companies, distributors, and supply chain companies producing and supplying essential products and services in and for industries such as pharmaceutical… healthcare, food and beverage.”

Pursuant to the express terms of this Order (and pursuant to other portions of the Order that specifically support the fact that the products that we manufacture are “essential” to these industries), Buschman is excepted from any requirement to cease our business and operations in the State of Ohio, where we operate, and in fact, have been encouraged by the State of Ohio Department of Health to remain open.

Testimonials

The Supplier of Choice for Coating Rods

“The quality of Buschman’s products is excellent. In the ten years we’ve been purchasing coating rods from them, we’ve had maybe two or three issues and they are minor issues. For the number of coating rods we purchase, that’s incredible. Their quality has been so high and they work so well with us that we don’t even consider looking at other vendors for our coating rod needs.”

Buschman Delivers Consistent Quality

“It’s all about the quality of the rod we’re using to meter the product onto the paper. Without the proper rod application, your coating isn’t going to lay properly. Buschman has a quality product that performs the way it’s supposed to and they get it to us when we need it. They consistently meet all our expectations.”
