Other Dometic Marine Facilities Will Remain Open to Meet Needs of Boating Industry
Dometic Marine, formerly known as SeaStar Solutions, announced today that it will abide by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf’s order that all “non-life-sustaining” businesses in the state close down for an undetermined period of time to help stem the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Dometic Marine’s Limerick, Pennsylvania facility is closed as of today, and will remain closed as long as the order is in effect. “We recognize the impact this closure will have on our employees, their families, customers and community at large,” said Dometic Marine President Eric Fetchko. “As painful and disruptive as this is, it is something that must be done to slow the spread of Coronavirus and protect our families, our state, our nation and the world. If we all do our part, follow the directives of our local government and the CDC, and help one another whenever we can, we’ll come out of this crisis sooner rather than later,” added Fetchko.
Dometic Marine’s Limerick manufacturing facility is the leading source of mechanical steering, controls and cables for the marine and boat building industry. Key personnel from the facility will be working remotely to provide a level of service and ensure that the industry’s needs continue to be met. There is inventory currently “in the pipeline” and we are taking actions to minimize disruptions to our customers.
“At this time, all of our other Dometic Marine manufacturing facilities and offices remain open and in full operation,” Fetchko emphasized. “We are fully committed and prepared to exhaust all available options to meet the needs of the marine industry during this unparalleled and ever-changing situation.”
