Cane Creek resumes limited operations at North Carolina HQ

Cane Creek has resumed business at its HQ having shut down in late March due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Based in North Carolina, the firm has re-opened for ‘limited operations’ after the state deemed it an essential business.

Cane Creek is following NC and CDC Covid-19 prevention guidelines by regularly santising surfaces, limiting the number of staff in the facility at any one time, requiring staff to maintain a distance of six feet from one another, requiring workers to wear masks and gloves in common areas and requiring that all staff who are able to work from home do so.

“Certainly, it is a difficult balance between treating the pandemic with the respect it deserves and ensuring Cane Creek will survive for employees and riders,” said Brent Graves, president and CEO of Cane Creek. “So, we are reviewing the situation and adjusting daily. We are also fortunate as reported cases in our area are currently very low relative to the population.”

Due to these preventative measures, Cane Creek is operating with limited production capacity and is asking customers to expect longer than usual fulfillment times on all orders.

Cane Creek is not alone in gradually resuming operations while grappling with distancing measures – across the Atlantic Gazelle and Orbea have implemented safeguards while recommencing production.

Other manufacturers in the cycle industry have adapted their manufacturing processes to produce much needed PPE for health professionals, including Tern Bicycles, Santini and Ale.
