material ever, its strength, versatility, sustainability, and re- cyclability, remain unchanged by the pandemic. LM : In many business segments, it is not just weathering the storm it is thriving. This is truly an outstanding reusable, renewable and recyclable product. It is and will continue to be The Fiber of Our Lives. In talking with our members, we have seen a positive outlook. One member from a major integrated company commented, “Our plants have been taking pre- cautions by cleaning at the beginning and the end of the shift focusing on those surfaces that every operator inter- acts with to manage the equipment. Business has slack- ened because of the slowdown of some non-essential manufacturing, but the food industry and other personal care items has not. So many of our plants although slow, still have plenty of business to run.” A key supplier to the industry recently remarked, “We can weather the storm by preparing our businesses and equipment to be ready when demand increases. Now is the time to take advantage of the downtime to make en- hancements and repairs so when volumes increase we can concentrate on production rather than maintenance and repairs.“ Another supplier summed it up by saying “Fortunately corrugated truly is an essential business and throughout this pandemic we have seen that our product/ industry keeps the supply chain going.”
