COVID-19 Response: Employee Innovations

Facing a limited marketplace supply of hand sanitizer and fire-resistant face masks, our employees got creative and resourceful to meet the shortage. They put their skills and innovation to work and started manufacturing an in-house hand sanitizer solution and fire-resistant masks for their fellow employees in the field.  Read more about our employees' innovations during the COVID-19 response to help keep you and our employees safe.
Employees turned an automotive upholstery shop into a mask-making shop. In addition to common masks, they're also making fire-resistant ones for power crews to comply with safety regulations.
Our Industrial Chemists have produced approximately 80 gallons of the in-house hand sanitizer, so far. Other groups have pitched in to purchase bottles to package the solution.
