Within these Challenges Transpires Strengthened Partnerships
In what appears to be our new normal, for right now, we are faced with updates each day concerning our communities, states, and the globe.
The updates we receive daily can cause uncertainty within us all, wondering what tomorrow will bring, and how it will affect each of us personally and as a business. Together, we will move onward and upward while navigating this new normal.
These times may be uncharted, but the support you rely on us for is not.
We are committed to you and your business. Over the weeks, we have worked diligently with each of our departments to ensure each team member is prepared to work with you most safely and efficiently as possible. In doing so, each of our team members has signed off on the following policies.
- COVID-19 Policy for All Employees
- COVID-19 Policy for Service Technicians
- COVID-19 Policy for Equipment Shipment and Receipt
- COVID-19 Policy for Package & Mail Shipment and Receipt
- COVID-19 Policy for Sales Representatives
- COVID-19 Policy for Supply Partners
We continue to maintain and build on our safety protocols.
- Continuous monitoring of local and global updates to ensure that we are modifying and adding health and safety practices accordingly.
- The majority of employees working remotely and limited visitors to lower in-person interaction, allowing essential office employees 6 feet of distance between all others.
- All business travel delayed until further notice.
- Face masks have been supplied to each employee to create a safe and comfortable working environment for all in the office and in the field.
We value and encourage communication. For all questions please contact us here.

Each of our sales representatives are ready to assist you in any way they can – safely, of course. If you’re not sure who your representative is, contact us and we’ll put you in touch with one of our industry experts to consult over the phone.

The health and safety of Wolter Group employees and customers are always of the utmost importance to us, as is ensuring that we continue to service our customers without disruption.
As information continues to unfold around the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), we will continue to reduce the potential exposure to our employees and customers.
As a whole, our company is taking preventative measures and proactively following CDC best practice guidelines, and that of state and local authorities, to avoid the spread of this virus. Please note that these guidelines may continue to change as this outbreak develops.
These best practices include the following:
- Employees are washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and using a hand sanitizer of at least 60% alcohol when soap and water are not readily available, as well as avoiding touching their eyes, nose, and mouth
- Enhanced cleaning of our facilities per CDC guidelines
- Enabling certain employees to work from home while still maintaining high levels of service to customers.
- Coordinating strong communications with employees and the businesses we partner with to ensure that our customer’s needs are met.
- Providing employees with information and best practices from the CDC to prevent the spread of COVID-19, including self-quarantine recommendations. Employees have been instructed to stay home when sick
- Cancellation of all non-essential business travel, and limiting visitors to our facilities
- Utilizing teleconferencing or video conferencing tools vs in-person meetings
- Practicing social distancing recommendations of 6ft of separation for business-critical in-person meetings
We are identifying small, proactive changes to practice 6ft of separation while maintaining our best service and support for deliveries, tire press, and service appointments.
We will continue to implement preventative measures as the situation unfolds and will update this page and communicate as appropriate.
For specific questions or concerns, you may Contact Us, fill out the form, and a company representative will respond promptly.
We thank you for your support in ensuring the safety of our team members and will continue to provide the same great level of service you’ve been accustomed to in these unpredictable times.
