• Information for Manufacturers

    With the Coronavirus/COVID-19 situation top of mind for manufacturers across the state, this page is intended as a resource of information about this fluid situation.

    • In the interest of helping our members stay operational in the coming weeks, we are here as a resource. New information will be added as it becomes available.
    • We recommend that each company take the time to engage in due diligence to ensure you understand how YOUR business is being impacted and how you can stay operational in these uncertain times.

     

  • Survey Results: State of Manufacturing During COVID-19 

    TSMA, CMMA and AMFA partnered with Diedrich RPM (who provided this research pro-bono) to develop and deploy a survey targeting our manufacturing members to understand how COVID-10 is impacting their operations. We learned that many manufacturers are challenged with lowered capacity and disruption while navigating a new normal. We also learned some are implementing new ideas and processes that we think are important to share.
