Dear USEV team member,                                                                        


As you know, we are facing an unprecedented global crisis that continues to unfold daily. We have been taking numerous actions to keep the plant open, while at the same time ensuring we protect the health and wellbeing of our employees.


Many of our customers continue to suspend production, our leadership team was faced with a difficult decision. This letter is to inform you that due to the decreased demand for products made at our facility, you will be placed on a temporary layoff starting Monday, March 30th, 2020.


Currently, we are planning for plant operations to remain shutdown through Sunday, May 3 2020. However, due to the dynamic nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, this time period may change. We are monitoring this situation and will provide updates via the Weather Hotline (864-647-3635, Option2).


Please inform HR of your intent to utilize vacation before Friday of each shutdown week.  If not utilizing vacation, we will assume unemployment and file a claim for you each Sunday.  You will need to certify each following Monday at


We appreciate your dedication to USEV and your understanding in this ever-changing environment. 





Bobby Dover

Plant Manager
