Supporting 'essential services'
KAESER AIR SERVICE & COVID-19 Level 4
Update 24 March 2020
In light of the impending move to COVID-19 Level 4 from 11.59 pm, 25 March 2020, please find below important information about the measures we have put in place to ensure that we can continue to support ‘essential services’ in the days and weeks ahead.
Continued on-site service support for ‘essential services’
We are closely following updates from the Government. At time of writing the advice is that Entities and their workers carrying out services considered essential will stay open. This also includes entities in their supply chains. As such - until we are given any guidance to the contrary - our Service Technicians will be available to support the compressed air requirements of ‘essential services’ throughout the COVID-19 Level 4 period.
Stock, spare parts and hire
Our warehouse is well stocked with compressors and spare parts and don’t forget that we hire compressors if you require a short-term increase to your existing compressed air supply.
