June Recap

June seemed to go by as quickly as it came! We have continued to follow all CDC recommendations for social distancing, and just recently started having employees return to the office to work. However, we have had some of our employees test positive, so we have had our office employees return to working from home. In the meantime, we are following all social distancing recommendations and taking extra precaution with our FedEx and UPS Shipments as well as all technicians out at our job sites. We hope our employees will be able to return to the office sometime in July or August. Thank you all for your continued patience and business in light of any changes and

We had a recent update about one of our Meco Employees, Chris Key! We are excited to announce that one of our Augusta Retail Sales Reps, Chris Key, has been promoted to our new Retail Sales Manager/Key Account Manager! Chris has been with Meco for two years now and has proven to be invaluable to our team. His innovative skills, ability to handle difficult tasks/situations, and background in business have made him someone who can not only be dependable but will also make a great leader.

Not only do we have the industry experts for any retail or commercial fueling sites, we offer service that makes a difference with solutions to meet your site specific needs – including custom designs like this one! Our Greenville branch blew us away yet again when they rose to the occasion and provided this custom request for one of our valued customers.

    March Recap & COVID-19 Update

    Dear customers,

    Due to the current worldwide COVID-19 pandemic and the increase we see in our area, we would like to convey our plan of action going forward. Our greatest concern is the safety of our employees, their families, and our customers. Currently we are having salesmen and a handful of other employees work from home remotely to increase our social distance. We have increased the cleaning of our office and showroom/customer counter to include sanitizing of doors, workspaces, counters, etc. multiple times a day and after each customer or person comes inside. We are also asking vendors to suspend their visits and deliveries be made outside. Customers for the counter are asked to call in their order and we’ll deliver it via curbside delivery. Our technicians have been instructed to wear gloves at all jobs and to wash their hands regularly during and after each job.

    It is our desire and plan that work does not stop but is done in a more cautious manner to keep everyone involved safe and healthy. We have been in contact with our vendors and at the present time nothing has changed with orders or deliveries times. Since this situation is very fluid, we are having to take the situation on a day by day basis. If anything changes, those affected will be notified.

    If you have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. Please stay safe and healthy during this uncertain time.

    Sincerely,
    Meco Inc. of Augusta-Greenville
