Manufacturing rebounding amid pandemic

NEW Industries owner Chris Moore is proud of the way he and other Door County manufacturers have been able to weather the COVID-19 pandemic. According to Reuters, factory production nationwide is about 6.4 percent below its pre-pandemic levels. NEW Industries in Sturgeon Bay has seen its business volume go down because of the effect the pandemic had on the construction industry. Moore says the agricultural, energy, and defense sectors of its business have allowed them to stay profitable and keep workers employed during the last seven months. He is happy that things seem to be recovering even if the big increases in volume are not there yet.

Moore says COVID-19 and the election are still having an impact on whether or not businesses decided to move forward with big capital expenditures. He salutes his employees for their commitment to their jobs and their safety so people can stay healthy and productive.
