AQ MANUFACTURERS PIVOT OPERATIONS
Many of AQ’s manufacturers have quickly shifted their operations to increase production of in-demand products as the restaurant industry has turned to takeout and delivery services. Others are focused on increasing production of medical equipment and supplies as hospitals and health care providers face shortages on critical items. AQ listing manufacturer Sterno recently announced it has adapted its Northwest Indiana and Memphis facilities to focus on the production of cotton masks and hand sanitizer to support the medical community.
AQ manufacturers Carlisle, Cal-Mil and Bon Chef recently added cash register safety shields to their product lines, all of whom can be found listed in AQ.
“At Bon Chef, our goal is to aid the reemergence of the restaurant, buffet and hospitality industries. We have been taking suggestions from our partners and are creating products that instill confidence and add protection to dining guests. We have been expanding our product lines with Health Safety Shields, Buffet Sneeze Guards and Touchless Glove Dispensers that feature clear and sleek designs that are both convenient and practical. We want guests and employees to be safe while not subtracting from the experiences establishments are known to provide.”
