Manufacturing Gives Us Hope During COVID-19
COVID-19 news coverage is like a train wreck, you know you should turn it off and go do more productive things, but you just can’t stop watching. The devastating news and false promises we continually hear can send many of us into a deep spiral. Unemployment rates are through the roof. Businesses all over the world forced to close. It is really is a trying time for all. 2W Tech is a technology service provider that has a clients in various industries, but a large part of our client base is in manufacturing. The manufacturing industry is giving everyone in US hope during this COVID-19 pandemic.
When a call to action was sent out to the manufacturing sector for help, many manufacturing companies stepped up. We have industry giants like Ford, 3M and GE teaming up to speed up the production of personal protective gear for health care workers and of ventilators for people in acute respiratory distress amid the coronavirus epidemic. Ventec Life Systems and General Motors are partnering to build VOCSN critical care ventilators.
Huge Conglomerate giant LVMH, the parent company of Louis Vuitton, turned its perfume factories into hand sanitizer manufacturers. The maker of Absolut Vodka and Jameson Irish Whiskey are converting facilities to produce hand sanitizer.
I live in Erie, PA and we have a few local distilleries that are also making hand sanitizer to help our city. I mean, how freaking cool is that! You aren’t talking about Industry leaders. You are talking about small mom and pop distilleries doing what they can to help, in any way they can.
Let’s all continue to do our part to ensure we get through this health crisis and become stronger on the other side. Kudos to all the manufacturing businesses all over the world that have made sacrifices and changes to their manufacturing landscape to be able to contribute. 2W Tech is proud to partner with Manufacturers.
