We typically put together a piece every year that highlights the things we are thankful for. Based on the unprecedented year that 2020 has been and continues to be, this year’s summary of what we are thankful for is definitely a little bit different. As is always the case, we are getting ready to close down Thursday and Friday for the Thanksgiving holiday so that our employees can travel near and far to spend time with their families. This year it seems as though most be will traveling near or not at all as coronavirus cases once again surge nationwide.
First and foremost we are thankful that our Hydra-Tech Pumps employees and extended family have remained, with very little exception, coronavirus free and safe. We all know people who have been touched by the pandemic, some worse than others. Considering the global reach of this disease we are thankful that the health and well-being of our employees wasn’t significantly affected.
We are thankful that we completed our 8000 square foot addition in the beginning of 2020 and are using the space now in our daily manufacturing. We will be doing another update on the new space in our newsletter in early 2021.
Hydra-Tech Pumps is thankful for our customers, big and small, domestic and international. 2020 has been a tough business year not only for Hydra-Tech Pumps but for so many other businesses. Very few businesses that we know will have an up year in 2020, some are just barely hanging on and trying to survive. We appreciate the orders we took from existing customers in 2020 and we are excited about some first time orders from new customers. We look forward to continuing to support old and new customers in 2021.
Hydra-Tech Pumps is thankful for our vendors who have supported our efforts and contributed along the way.
Hydra-Tech Pumps is thankful that our founder, Ken Reim, is still very active on a daily basis and involved in Research and Development, Sales, Technical Support and is such a valuable resource to our whole group.
Hydra-Tech Pumps is thankful for our employees. This has been a stressful year for so many reasons. Since the pandemic exploded in March we have had to adapt and make sacrifices throughout the year. As we state every year, the success of the business is dependent upon the whole group, not any individual.
So to anyone reading this we would like to remind you to enjoy the time off this week with your family and friends. Be safe, be smart, and Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours from Hydra-Tech Pumps.
