Welcome to our 250th issue!
We were gearing up to tell a joke being that the 1st is April Fool’s Day and all, but, things aren’t quite so funny right now. Times are strange. We’ve never known a time when the country was in lockdown mode to avoid the spread of a virus. No matter what your personal feelings are on the matter, one thing we can agree on is that we need to work together. For our own health, and the health of our industry.
Communication is key. We need to keep open lines of dialogue between our families, workforces, and customers. Transparency is key. With it, we can power through these turbulent days, weeks, and months, and rebound as best we can.
Things might look different moving forward, but the lessons we take from this pandemic, will hopefully make us stronger – as individuals, as companies, and as an industry. What are you doing to keep your orders on target? How have you shifted the way you work to meet the demands of employee and customer safety? We’d love to hear your strategies and stories so that we can put them forth to the rest of your
peers in hopes that we can all work smarter and in good health for the rest of 2020 and beyond. Share your latest development and newly minted “best practices.” We’re all ears. Utilize The Gateway as your sounding board to make the manufacturing industry stronger and more robust than ever.
From our family to yours – stay safe, and best of health,
The Gateway Crew
