The safety of our employees and customers is paramount to Chappell Supply and Equipment. Because of this, we have already implemented additional procedures to clean and sanitize regularly high traffic areas of our facility. We have added more alcohol-base hand sanitizers and reminding employees to take important hygiene steps, including frequent hand washing and staying home if ill. We are also transitioning some of our employees out of our main facility and allowing them to work from home.
