Pittsburgh Air Systems Customers and Friends:

As the current situation with Covid-19 continues to unfold, we want to ensure you that we will continue to help you and your teams to perform the work that needs to be accomplished.

However, we will be changing how we go about our work for the remainder of this week and maybe into next week. We have encouraged all our folks that can work from home to do so. Our team members will have remote access to our computer systems as well as the typical computer access to our manufacturing partners.

The most significant change will be in our incoming phone traffic. We will be instituting an automated attendant starting Tuesday morning. A guide to our automated phone system:

If you know the person’s extension:
Enter it directly. You will be routed to the extension, or if the person is out of the office, you will be routed directly to their cell phone.

If you don’t know the extension:
Press #, This will take you to our company directory

If you want to leave a message in the General Mailbox:
Press 146 and leave a message. This mailbox will be continually monitored, and we will get back to you.

A list of extensions can also be found at: Our phone extensions

E-mail will continue to operate normally.

Thank you for your patience during this unprecedented time. We look forward to continuing to work with you. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

President
