The Gilman Brothers Company is responding to the urgent call to provide a solution to the current global COVID-19 crisis. Utilizing its INFINITY® Styrene Faced Foamboard the company is making available multiple designs of emergency temporary medical beds and distancing panel options.
Bill VanHorn, director of Sales at Gilman Brothers, explains the chain of events that summarizes the Gilman Brothers’ team commitment to the cause. “It’s been an extraordinary course of events to work directly with the Army Corp of Engineers to re-design, prototype as well as prepare all cut files, assembly instructions, and photos and to coordinate a supply chain to produce 1,000 beds and partition walls,” he says. “To have done all this in seventy-two hours is beyond commendable for the entire team. Our team literally answered the call on a Saturday morning and delivered all materials between Saturday night and Monday!”
“It was a powerful experience this past weekend to witness many companies from our industry pulling together to accomplish a huge task,” adds Ari Luna, business development manager at Gilman Brothers. “Customers with sleeves rolled up and working side by side, all with the attitude that we are in this together and here to help!”
“Anything is possible” has been the motto at The Gilman Brothers Company for over 122 years, and this time of crisis brings out the true meaning of this motto. The Gilman Brothers Company will continue to create innovative solutions to keep the support of our country, families, and our company alive!
