I am a recently retired quality manager with 30-plus years in manufacturing working in various industries, most recent for a gasket manufacturer making parts for critical pump parts.
Bravo for Rich Williams' cartoon in April 27 issue of Plastics News ["Tip of the hat to industry heroes," Page 6]. Not because of the company that you had in the cartoon, but as a good reminder that this foundation of critical manufacturing plants are needed to produce the product that is needed by the health care workers to fight this horrific disease.
We need to remember these men and women are critical to making the key product. We lose this foundation of workers and we will lose this war.
Please, if you are a manufacturer, make sure these critical workers are cared for.
I have family working in hospitals and we need to continue to support and thank them, as well as those producing the products they use to fight this ugly disease.
Thank you from the health care workers on the front line to those working in factories building the equipment/components that the health care workers need.
