OPEN FOR BUSINESS | COVID-19 RESPONSE
UPDATE 31st March: The Victorian Government has put the state under Stage 3 lockdown effective immediately from this date. Preschem still continues to operate under these restrictions and is fully compliant with the requirements imposed by our state Premier. Please note that Preschem is protecting the health of our staff and is therefore not accepting walk in sales from the general public. This is to ensure we can supply our utility customers throughout this crisis, so they can keep the lights on.
We are still here to assist you and can be contacted to place orders or for technical support on 03 9532 0679.
UPDATE 27th March: We are still open for business, but we are no longer accepting walk in counter sales from the general public. Unfortunately, we have had to stop this, as we’ve had customers ignoring our signage to not enter if showing any flu like symptoms (yes, heavy coughing is a flu like symptom). Should you wish to obtain product directly from us, please ring through your order and pay via credit card. We will then courier it to you (additional charge). This will ensure we are able to operate through this crisis.
23rd March: Dear customer, as you are aware the State and Federal Government response to the COVID-19 crisis has been to shut down all non-essential services within Victoria. Preschem supplies the electrical distribution and transmission industry with power pole preservatives to ensure the continued supply of electricity. This is a critical essential service. Preschem is open for business and continues to manufacture our products to support our utility customers. We will continue to do so for as long as it’s deemed safe.
We are monitoring the unfolding situation closely and should the circumstances change, will update you on the website as soon as possible.
We have taken steps to minimize potential exposure to COVID-19 with our staff including such measures as daily temperature checks, personal separation and improved hygiene practices. Where practical, we are allowing our staff to work from home.
We would appreciate that if you need to visit our office, that you do so only if it’s urgent and that you display no signs of flu-like symptoms. We may request that you allow us to take a temperature reading with an IR thermometer and will ask anyone with an unusually high temperature to leave the building.
But we are also able to despatch orders door to door and encourage you to use this as a priority.
We wish all of our community to remain healthy and safe through these difficult times.
