Otis Works to “Flatten the Curve” of COVID-19 Pandemic
In the face of the growing COVID-19 outbreak, Otis Technology is working to “flatten the curve” of COVID-19 Pandemic and support those on the front lines fighting the virus.
Otis Technology has partnered with Saint Lawrence Spirits to make, bottle and distribute hand sanitizer to first responders in desperate need during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, Otis Technology began using its facilities – that normally manufacture firearms maintenance equipment for military, law enforcement and civilians – to immediately begin manufacturing personal protective equipment (PPE).
“We’d been following the news closely in order to stay up-to-date on the virus and ensure the safety of our employees. We made the decision to temporarily cut our staff, in order to keep them at home, safe and to help flatten the curve. This decision was made just hours before Governor Cuomo announced a mandated workforce reduction,” states Larry Williams, CEO for Otis Technology. Read the full story here.
