As we continue to understand the impact of the COVID-19 virus, IIMAK remains committed to the well-being of employees, business partners, and local communities and has already taken decisive actions to protect the team’s health, safety, and security. IIMAK has instituted a rigorous work-from-home program for office staff and continues to stress appropriate social distancing and hygiene protocols with its entire workforce. 

Tom Bamrick, VP of sales and marketing confirmed, "Products manufactured at our Amherst, NY facility directly and indirectly supply the world with materials that are essential to the medical, hospital, food, transportation, and packaging industries."

IIMAK develops and manufactures thermal transfer, direct thermal, and digital inkjet consumable solutions that are essential to produce medical products such as patient identification wristbands used in hospitals and video imaging sonogram materials used by doctors to provide care guidance for expecting mothers. Additionally, IIMAK products are used to produce on-demand barcodes and human readable information that is the critical "first line” of information for direct labeling of goods in the essential industries of food, health care, transportation, and packaging. These goods and services would not move through the supply chain without the proper coding of information that contain critical information such as material content, lot numbers, and codes.

Bamrick concluded, "We will continue to operate all global manufacturing operations at capacity. To date, we remain fully operational at all global manufacturing and converting locations. Our goal is to work together proactively to support our partners' business needs during this challenging and rapidly changing time. Please contact your IIMAK Account Manager or email salesinfo@iimak.com with any question or concern."
