COVID-19 Resources for Manufacturers

These times are turbulent. Most of us are trying to deal with serious situations that involve how our employees will work and if we have enough work for them. Will backlog hold up or will customers push their demand for products out? These are the near-term points of chaos that each business must deal with due to COVID-19 disruption. But at some point, after getting your plan in place there may be a slower period of activity that, while not financially good, may be a good time to get some other business things done.

Synergy has reached out to several of our customers and found many things that manufacturers are doing during this downturn. We have compiled the resource list below which we’ll continue to add onto as we find more.

We have also compiled a list of external resources with information to help keep your business, customers, and employees safe as well as to help support economic retention and recovery related to COVID-19.
