The US and global economy are in uncharted waters at this time. Florida is no different. Functioning critical infrastructure is imperative during the response to the COVID-19 emergency for both public health, safety and community well-being. It will be even more important in the critical recovery effort to follow.
In Florida, manufacturers are identified as essential critical infrastructure that bears a unique responsibility during this crisis to continue operations and, in many cases, contribute to the accelerated demand for much-needed materials and supplies brought about through this crisis and for the overall sustainability of our communities.
We are calling on all Florida manufacturers to please complete the survey!
The information shared will assist us in helping with the COVID-19 response in the following ways:
1. Get manufacturing capabilities connected to the critical demands being generated during this period. (Answers to questions 1 through 5 will be made available through Connex Florida – Florida’s Supply Chain Solution to be drawn upon at this time of critical demand.)
2. Learn about the current challenges of Florida's manufacturing industry; whether there is a need for technical, business/financial, or workforce assistance to either sustain operations or scale-up production. (Answers to questions 6 through 14 will remain confidential and will help us develop new tools and / or improve our current resources to assist manufacturers.)
If you are a Florida manufacturer, we sincerely appreciate you taking the time to complete this survey. If you are not one, please share this message with all your Florida manufacturing stakeholders.
Florida’s economic resiliency relies on companies like you to remain engaged and active during a crisis.
