Manufacturing during COVID-19: Ramping up again
June 4, 2020 at 1:00pm ET

As the COVID-19 virus is slowly being brought under control by social distancing measures and widespread testing, provinces across Canada are gradually reopening their economies, and manufacturers need to be ready to ramp up again.

Unfortunately, the resumption of full scale operations doesn’t necessarily mean a return to business as usual. The “new normal” will include a host of new safety, operational and financial challenges.

To address some of the complex issues associated with manufacturing in the midst of a global pandemic, Canadian Manufacturing, PLANT and EP&T magazines brought together a group of industry experts in a virtual summit.

“Manufacturing during COVID-19: Ramping up again,” hosted on June 4, tackled some of the most important aspects of operating during this perilous time through a series of focused presentations and an open roundtable discussion.

Over 400 manufacturing leaders attended, but if you missed the live summit, you can watch all the sessions – which are available on-demand.
