As the widely publicised COVID-19 (the Coronavirus) continues to impact the global community, over the past 10 weeks, much has changed at a rapid rate. Tadano Oceania is taking steps to ensure business continuity for all our customers and employees around the world.
Based on guidance from the World Health Organization and our head office in Japan, we have augmented our already robust Business Continuity Plan with specific steps to account for COVID-19.
Safety is Tadano’s number one corporate value. The well being of our employees and our customers is paramount. As the situation continues to develop, we have asked individual employees to work from home as a precaution. Our business continuity planning continues to evolve as we strive to meet customer demands safely.
We are critically assessing employee travel, both international and domestic. Any non-essential travel has been ceased. Also, given many of our customers have implemented similar travel policies, we have instructed employees to leverage technology and conduct internal and external meetings virtually as much as possible.

We are all living through an unprecedented time. The scenario evolves almost hourly. We are committed to maintaining our business operations and ensuring our customers continue to receive the highest quality service with as little disruption as possible. Thank you for your continued trust in Tadano Oceania.
