March 30, 2020
With much of its business deemed essential during the COVID-19 economy, GLR remains open supplying products to medical, food sorting, and transportation industries among others. The company is deemed ‘critical manufacturing’ along with its parent company, Mac Valves, as the valves they manufacture go into medical supplies such as oxygen concentrators and ventilators. Great Lakes Rubber’s supply chain remains open as well.
Precautions are being taken in the workplace and GLR is following the guidance of health experts at the U.S. Center for Disease Control and state and local health agencies to prevent the spread of the virus. Policies have been put in place to keep employees healthy by frequent hand washing, social distancing, and working from home when possible. GLR has also increased the frequency of which it cleans and disinfects its facilities and equipment.
