Open for business.
We are here and ready to serve you! Draper is maintaining regular business hours in all areas, including sales, receiving, manufacturing, and shipping. Orders are shipping within our standard lead times in all departments. We are carefully monitoring our supply chain. Key suppliers are shipping us the materials we need. Our business continues to be strong. Most employees are working in the office and maintaining social distancing. Please use our website contacts (click here) to find the direct line of the person you need to reach. As always, we are ready to accept your quotes and orders.

Health and Safety
We are continuing to take precautions to keep our employees safe. We maintain regular communication with the Henry County Health Department. We are adhering to their guidance, CDC recommendations, as well as Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb’s guidelines for conducting business. Here are some other actions we have taken:

  • We conduct most meetings through teleconference, with face-to-face meetings limited to less than 15 people. Tables and chairs have been removed from conference rooms and the remaining furniture spread out for social distancing. Business travel remains limited.
  • Masks are required on our premises, except within the employee’s workspace when social distancing can be maintained, in line with Governor Holcomb’s mandate.
  • All employees are to maintain social distance while on the premises.
  • We have upgraded our cleaning and sanitizing practices, both through increased hours for the custodial staff and designated sanitizing time for employees to clean their own work areas.
  • Visitors are limited to scheduled visits, small groups, and limited access.
  • Employees showing any symptoms of illness are required to stay at home. We are taking employee temperatures every day at the start of the shift. Anyone with a temperature of 100 or more is required to go home.
  • Draper also maintains an onsite clinic managed by Henry Community Health, allowing our employees to receive affordable, quality care quickly and easily

We will continue to monitor the health situation in our home community of Spiceland, Indiana, and will respond with the necessary precautions to keep our workforce safe.

Finding Solutions.

Early on in this crisis, Draper donated 1200 masks to Henry Community Health, the local hospital serving our community. Both paper and N95 masks were included. Since then we procured and donated an additional quantity of 3-ply masks. At the suggestion of some of our employees, we also began production of cloth masks and plastic face shields, which have been donated to local healthcare facilities and made available to our own employees and their families to help keep them safe.

More recently, we launched a new line of protective barriers, Clarity Shield, inspired by teachers and faculty of our local schools who are members of some of our employees’ families.

We appreciate our employees’ hard work and desire to help others during this crisis. Thank you for your continuing business, and please stay safe.
