Ingram Responds to Shelter in Place Requirements

March 23, 2020

NASHVILLE, TN (March 22, 2020)- Ingram Content Group® operates print manufacturing and book distribution centers in five U.S. locations (Tennessee, Oregon, Pennsylvania, California, and Indiana), as well as the United Kingdom and Australia. Public health and governmental authorities in many of the geographies where Ingram Content Group has business operations have issued shelter in place, lockdown, or other instructions regarding COVID-19.

Based on the guidance provided from the various authorities, Ingram Content Group’s global operations remain open at this time.  Ingram’s wholesale, distribution, print on demand, and digital services fall into exceptions in the directives that have been issued. Ingram Content Group’s operations are, therefore, considered essential and we are encouraged to remain open.   

On Sunday, March 22, the Metropolitan Nashville Mayor issued a “shelter in place” order for Davidson County, TN.  Until further notice, all businesses not performing essential services are asked to close for 14 days.  This order took effect at 12:01 a.m. Monday, March 23. But as we are considered essential services, we will remain open

“We are monitoring all global geographies where we do business for announcements regarding COVID-19 and are adjusting our business accordingly. At this time, we can report that all our facilities and distribution centers around the world remain open. Ingram Content Group continues to take actions to support the health and safety of all our associates as well as provide critical services to the industry in these difficult times,” said Ingram’s President and CEO Shawn Morin.
