With the uncertainty that has surrounded us recently, some amazing small business owners have stepped up to help our community in whatever way they can. We want to recognize their efforts!
Today’s Hero – Win-Tech
Today we shine the spotlight on Win-Tech, a veteran-owned aerospace precision machine shop. They are currently making ventilator pieces for a customer assembling ventilator units. Their team was able to work quickly from request for quote to receipt of order to establish a game plan to provide the customer with a partial shipment of pieces as soon as possible, with production lots immediately following each week for several weeks.
Win-Tech also remains vigilant in keeping their staff safe and healthy. In doing so, they have implemented a plan that includes relaxing their paid time off policy, canceling business travel, encouraging sick employees to stay home, assigning several employees with sanitizing work areas and common spaces often, and several other reminders and policies.
Allison Giddens, Win-Tech’s Director of Operations, comments, “The best analogy we have heard is that this is a marathon – the COVID-19 challenge isn’t one we’ll beat overnight! It is vital that we communicate regularly and clearly. There are many scenarios to plan for and the supply chain has multiple facets that can affect Win-Tech. We are working hard to mitigate risks that would cause us not to meet promises to our customers.”
If you have a manufacturing need and can provide a blue print, Win-Tech is committed to making it a priority to quote price and lead time. Please contact them for inquiries or order requests and continue to support the companies who are working hard to adapt through these uncertain times.
