  • January 1, 2020 COVID-19 Pandemic

    At the start of 2020, the SARS-CoV-2 virus (COVID-19) began to spread throughout Pennsylvania. We quickly reacted to the virus and guidelines issued by the CDC and worked to mitigate the spread of the virus at Viwinco. A 2-week closure, updates to our ventilation system, daily testing, a thermal temperature gate, social distancing and mandatory mask wearing were some of the the changes we made. The COVID-19 virus quickly impacted the global supply chain and the way business was conducted worldwide. This exposed vulnerabilities within the supply chain and the acquisition of material from our suppliers became a struggle and quantities varied daily. Simultaneously, product demand skyrocketed due to us performing significantly better than the competition and to a number of economic factors such as: historically low mortgage rates, and families redirecting vacation funds and travel expenses to improving their homes.
