Pomfret, CT, November 8, 2021— At aerospace and medical manufacturer Loos & Company, we understand that employees are the most valuable assets to our company. As a committed employer of more than 240 employees from many Eastern Connecticut communities, we are dedicated to the health and safety of our employees.
Based on this, Loos & Company, along with parent company Central Wire Industries, announced last summer the requirement that all employees to be vaccinated against the coronavirus by October 29th, 2021.
We are happy to announce that as of that date, all Loos & Company employees have been vaccinated against COVID-19. Our employees join the over 500 additional CWI team members at 11 North American Facilities that are 100% vaccinated.
“Like many employers, we have had to make tough decisions related to the ongoing threat of COVID-19 and its variants”, says Paul From, President and CEO of Central Wire Industries. “Over the last 18+ months, we have attempted to stay ahead of the virus and mitigate its impact on our workforce, their families, and friends.”
The vaccine mandate decision was made through the Central Wire Industries’ Board of Directors and top leadership teams based on the guidance of healthcare professionals and industry leaders. The result has been a success.
“We want a workforce that can feel safe and valued in their careers,” continues From. “We’re a manufacturer standing up for our staff’s health and wellness. From the beginning, we encouraged all local and global businesses to follow our lead and put their employees’ health first.”
According to From, “Unlike many other companies, we truly care about our employees. We offered accommodations to receive their coronavirus vaccinations, like paid time off and an on-site COVID-19 vaccine clinic. We don’t just say the right things, we follow through. We made the tough decision, and the result is that Loos & Company only lost 8 of roughly 240 workers.”
Mr. From feels that this successful program is another example of what makes Central Wire, and Loos & Company, the best employer in Eastern Connecticut. “My message is simple: do you want to work for a company that cares about your health and safety? I don’t blame you. Loos & Company is that company. “
