The COVID-19 public health emergency has forced businesses around the globe to reconsider the ways they handle daily tasks and operations. For businesses in the manufacturing industry, leaders have had to implement important safety measures while preparing for increased uncertainty and long-lasting changes to the work environment.
Unlike a lot of other industries, manufacturing requires heavy equipment, machinery, adequate space, and often a controlled environment. This makes working from home extremely difficult.
In order to continue operations and ensure the organizations we support can continue to thrive in a struggling economy, Means Engineering has developed a COVID-19 response plan to ensure the safety and continued well-being of our employees.
At Mean Engineering, the health and safety of our staff has always been our top priority. We have been able to stay open during the public health emergency by implementing proper safety procedures. We also developed a COVID-19 task force. The main focus of this task force is to ensure the continuous safety and well-being of our employees.
In addition to implementing CDC recommended cleaning and sanitation practices, our COVID-19 task force monitors employee health, and implements additional safety measures as recommended by leading authorities.
Preventing the Spread of Disease Takes a Team Effort
At Means Engineering, our people don’t just help organizations create new products, they bring years of industry expertise and insight to the table. They offer viable solutions to a wide range of design and production development issues. Our people truly are what sets Means Engineering apart.
Our COVID-19 plan and task force were developed following Means Engineering’s core values. These values play an important role in every decision we make.

Every month, Means Engineering hosts company-sponsored events. These events allow us to unwind and connect as a team. We believe this is where innovation begins. Unfortunately, during the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve had to put these events on hold. However, we continue to show our appreciation to our staff through food trucks, cookies, and by providing them with plenty of Means Engineering merchandise.
Although life looks a little different now, we plan to continue to grow and adjust as a team. We believe this will strengthen our ability to exceed our customers’ expectations for both quality and service.
