During the COVID-19 pandemic, Itron has remained committed to continuing operations at our manufacturing sites, delivering the highest level of support and service to our customers and partners, all while balancing employee safety and adhering to local and country-level mandates. In many regions across the globe, the work Itron does is considered an essential service as we provide critical infrastructure solutions. The continued operation of Itron’s facilities, supply chain and contract manufacturers are critical to enabling our utility customers to reliably deliver energy and water during and after this pandemic.

For the safety of our manufacturing employees, our facilities have instituted safety trainings, established additional cleanings per shift, made hand sanitizer readily available and provided appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) to employees. Itron is also utilizing social distancing in all locations, including within production lines, wherever possible. We are actively encouraging any employee who is not feeling well to stay home by extending sick leave benefits as needed.

In Europe, Itron collaborated closely with unions and works councils to maximize safety in our facilities and ensure that our global protocols were in line with country-specific measures mandated by local governments.

With these measures in place, our intent is to keep our communities safe and healthy while ensuring customer success and business continuity. To learn more about what Itron is doing to support our customers and employees during COVID-19, visit www.itron.com/covid.
