As the world continues to combat the spread of COVID-19, many manufacturing companies are answering President Trump's call and joining the fight by building medical products, donating supplies, and more. In order to continue protecting those who are on the front lines, Portable Solutions Group has donated N95 respiratory masks to both Kings Daughters Medical Center's coronavirus testing center that's being set up in Grayson, Kentucky, and to DASCO Home Medical Equipment. At PSG, the masks are normally used for protecting employees during any high dust/sanding application.

Each location will be using the masks for different purposes while in contact with patients. KDMC employees will be using the masks while swabbing patients' mouths and noses in order to test them for COVID-19. DASCO Home Medical Equipment employees will be using the masks while setting up medical equipment for their patients. The goal of donating these masks is to ensure that essential medical employees and their patients are protected during this time. By doing so, we can help slow the progression of COVID-19 and keep those who are at risk safe. 

At Portable Solutions Group, we encourage everyone to continue staying safe, secure, and healthy by staying home when possible, practicing social distancing, washing hands regularly, and cleaning common areas in order to avoid the spread of germs. According to the CDC, If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop a fever and symptoms, such as cough or difficulty breathing, call your healthcare provider for medical advice.

PSG Prepares for Coronavirus by Purchasing a Surplus of Materials

Since 2020 first began, cases of coronavirus have been increasing and causing global travel to be disrupted. As a result, the exporting of goods from various countries has rapidly decreased. This has caused the global shipping container trade to be affected by delivery delays due to calls to certain ports being reduced and shipments being re-routed.

So what does this mean for PSG and its family of companies? Well, as the spread of coronavirus began to cause these issues, our companies began to discuss how they could best prepare for the delay. By doing so, they are now prepared to complete future builds for customers during the outbreak. 

Ronnie Kearns, Head of Manufacturing and Procurement, said, "In a effort to protect our customers, due to delayed shipping of materials from overseas, PSG reached out to steel and container vendors to evaluate their stock levels of materials forecasted for future builds. In doing this, we found that there was an expected shortage of materials due to delays in shipments to our suppliers. Working with our suppliers, we were able to purchase enough material to protect upcoming orders for our customers for the next several months."

At Portable Solutions Group, we ensure that our customers receive their products in a quick and efficient manner no matter what challenges we may face. Through years of experience within numerous industries, we have become a leader in shipping container modification and are always prepared by being one step ahead. As a result, we are Reinventing the Box™ for customers all around the world!
