Managing Through Crisis is a special section that lets manufacturing suppliers tell their storyClick image to enlargeDuring the current COVID-19 lockdown, many manufacturers and their suppliers have teamed up to find ways to keep operating during the unprecedented economic crisis.

Some continue to supply companies as they pivot towards manufacturing medical equipment to address the need for PPE, ventilators and other much needed supplies. Some have developed a new product or adapted existing technology to answer a new need caused by the lockdown.

All are trying to help in the way they are most able. Now it’s time for them to tell their story.

Our newest web feature, Managing Through Crisis, is all about how companies and their partners have managed through the COVID-19 crisis, and they tell the story in their own words.

Click here to check out the special Managing Through Crisis section on our website to read these company stories as they come in.

If your company has helped a manufacturer answer the call, please fill out this form and, once approved by our editors, your story will automatically be posted to our special section AND on a rotating spot on our homepage.
