After ruminating on our company’s advancement since last year’s July 4th holiday, our team can easily identify times where our role as an American manufacturer was of profound significance. The overwhelming bewilderment brought on the Coronavirus pandemic brought immense devastation, a myriad of extensive problems, and an all-encompassing global setback; however, it also brought opportunities to give back to our community and support the strong recovery of the United States. When the pandemic hit the U.S., our team was determined to utilize our expertise in engineered dispensing systems to aid in the Covid-19 relief effort. Our engineers rapidly lent a hand by creating hand sanitizer dispensing systems to serve the cleanliness of the American people. Because GP Reeves was a nimble enough company, we were able to reallocate some internal resources and spend countless hours designing a touchless system to ensure sanitization needs were reliably met. Our line of hand sanitizer systems, known as Defense Dispense™ has been able to provide schools, businesses, and society overall with access to cleanliness and safety. In addition to being able to serve the wellbeing of many Americans, GP Reeves has been prideful to do so with a manufacturing and design processes that is completely American. All the components of our original hand sanitizer dispensers and stands were constructed and integrated in the United States; most of them came from companies less than an hour from ours. We were able to collaborate with numerous local companies to build and supply our hand sanitizer systems, further promoting our ability to effectively enable the prosperity of U.S. based businesses.
In addition, GP Reeves recognized the heavy impact the Coronavirus pandemic had on the American supply chain. Due to shutdowns and quarantine periods, a plethora of assembly lines throughout the United States were set on pause, causing delays and closures throughout the American supply chain. Due to our nation’s strong resilience and ability to advance amidst challenges, the U.S. was able to recognize a larger importance of a stable domestic supply chain. As manufacturing chains gradually move from integrated processes with international collaborators to fully American supply lines, consolidations are fueling accommodation for advanced engineering processes and adoption of new assembly techniques. GP Reeves has used its ability to support the simplification and modernization of production lines to support these contemporary practices. In addition, GP Reeves has worked to ensure our team does not contribute to any supply chain concerns. Most of our equipment is manufactured in-house, so customers do not have to worry about extended lead times or delays due to supplier mishaps. This capability enhances our capacity to whole-heartedly support the country’s industrial advancement.
Overall, GP Reeves has a lot to celebrate this Independence Day. Not only is our team enthused about fireworks, pool parties, and hot dogs, but we are truly grateful to celebrate our country’s devotion to progress and America’s cultivation of such a robust manufacturing industry. Our equipment is made in the U.S.A. – and that is something to be proud of.
