Manufacturing resources during COVID-19

The manufacuturing and industrial sector is vital to Keep Glynn Running. Our team is working on identifying and sharing resources for manufacturers of all sizes during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Development Authority’s assistance was requested for two critical missions assigned to the Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD). Governor Kemp’s office is seeking responses to the following:

1. Manufacturers/Distributor who have access to, or can shift production to, critical healthcare supplies

To respond to the request for Critical Supplies:

GDEcD will not be determining if a request is valid or not, we will only track and report.

COVID-19 PPE & Essential Business Information

  • Exclusion Requests

    GDEcD has been asked to track the "exclusion" requests that are coming in from industries/companies that want to be considered "essential businesses" and allowed to remain open if some sort of government-mandated shut down is ordered. We do want to stress that Governor Kemp does not believe that a mandated shut down is in the best interest of the state at this time, but as we all know, this is an extremely fluid situation. We will track the requests, inputting the information below so that it can be pulled and considered if circumstances warrant. The GDEcD regional team will follow up with the company at the appropriate time.
  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

The Georgia Tech Manufacturing Extension Partnership is offering fact sheets, online webinars, and other resources specific to manufacturing companies.

The NAM is in contact with federal officials who are overseeing the response to COVID-19. We will work to share additional available information and welcome your concerns and input.
