Dear Valued Business Partners,

On behalf of all of us at Merit Medical, I hope you, your colleagues, your friends and families are staying healthy during this troublesome situation. As always, Merit OEM is devoted to maintaining a continuous supply of Merit’s products and components during this unprecedented public health crisis. As I affirmed in my statement last week, Merit’s pre-established business continuity strategy and implementing Merit’s COVID-19 Response Plan will ensure that Merit continues to be operational and firing on all cylinders.

Joint COVID-19 Response Plan

During these uncertain times, Merit is working with our OEM partners to establish joint COVID-19 response plans. This gives our OEM partners the opportunity to leverage Merit’s stable supply chain in building sufficient quantities of safety stock; guaranteeing they meet customer demand. Merit is willing and able to do the same for any of our OEM partners during these challenging circumstances. Submit your orders via customer service ( or contact your business development manager to discuss any additional details.

Forced Shutdown of All Non-Life-Sustaining Business

In an unprecedented move to stop the spread of COVID-19, Gov. Tom Wolf of Pennsylvania ordered all non-life-sustaining businesses in the state to close their physical locations. As many of our OEM partners know, Merit has a manufacturing facility in Malvern, PA. Fortunately, Merit Medical is classified as an essential life-sustaining business and will continue to manufacture products as scheduled.

COVID-19 Updates on

As the entire globe responds and navigates this unprecedented situation, the need for up-to-date information and transparent communication is critical. In addition to sending relevant information via email, we are working on a COVID-19 News and Information page on, that will contain up-to-date information pertinent to our OEM partners about Merit’s status regarding the COVID-19 outbreak.

Thank you for your continued partnership during these unprecedented times.
