Portland Bolt Deemed “Essential Business”

On Monday, March 23rd, the Oregon State Office of the Governor released Executive Order No. 20-12. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, employees of certain companies have been ordered to "Stay at Home," closing specified retail businesses, requiring social distancing measures for other public and private facilities, and imposing requirements for outdoor areas and licensed childcare facilities. Oregon manufacturers like Portland Bolt, who produce critical components for government, military, and infrastructure projects are not included in the "Stay at Home" order. Therefore, we will continue to operate at full capacity at this time.
