For what you are about to read:

No business school, school of hard knocks, no nothing prepares anyone for what we are all currently experiencing.

At the close of business today, the SVI operation will remain OPEN to operate with a smaller crew. This is being done to allow everyone to protect themselves and many to “stay at home” until the Covid-19 virus shall pass or become severely minimized. We want everyone to get through this situation healthy and safe and that is our sole objective as a responsibly operating business.

In a very general and broad sense, we are considered an “essential” business by many. SVI is frequently called on to supply products to perhaps keep automotive lifts, other shop equipment, etc. in service that is needed to keep emergency vehicles properly operating.

To assist us in this difficult time:

Please email orders to your normal contact at SVI or to


Please fax order to 800-899-1784


Try calling 800-321-8173 but please be patient. The best thing now is for email contact.

Please be advised that some in sales are working from home and some in sales are currently deferred. If you should happen to email an order to someone in sales who is off during this period of time, do not worry, others in sales will see your email and respond. Since we are working with a more limited staff, you may encounter some delays in response, but everyone will be working hard to respond as soon as and as fast as possible.

Shipping and production has also been pared down, but UPS and some truck shipments will still be made from all three SVI warehouses.

Baltimore – Chicago – Los Angeles

Please keep in mind that due to some of our limitations, some same-day shipments may to an extent be affected and not get out the same day.

How long will this last? We have no idea whether the growing health concerns regarding the fast spread of the virus are going to last two weeks, one month, two months or more. For the sake of everyone and everything, let’s hope the sun starts shining and kills this virus dead soon. When any changes regarding any of this should occur you will be notified immediately.

We completely hope for everyone’s safety and good health through all of this. This is an unprecedented situation and not taken lightly at all by any of us at all. Health and safety is the number one priority.

Thank you for your understanding, your past efforts and hopefully your future support. We look forward to getting back to full steam as soon as possible.

Go straight to Hell Covid-19.
