Owen Industries is making every effort to keep our employees, vendors and customers safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. We have implemented many new safety measures across all our divisions to help insure everyone is protected. For our Omaha/Carter Lake operations, we want to highlight Wayne Bell and Twana McGhee for stepping up to the plate during this difficult time and being the driving force in sanitizing our offices and plants! All day, every day these two wipe down all high touch surfaces and replenish all our supplies. Dave Coover works daily in our Structures plant sanitizing high touch surfaces. In Fargo we have Jay Foard doing extra cleaning and sanitizing in the shop and in Sioux City we have Katie Tucker doing the sanitizing nightly.
All these efforts have helped to greatly reduce risk to everyone on our campus. These key players regularly clean and sanitize doors, railings, machinery, breakrooms, office machines and restrooms to help prevent the spread of the virus. Our staff would not be so well protected if it weren’t for these superstars and their daily cleaning routines.
Hand sanitizer stations (made by MVS!) are located throughout our offices and shops. Upon entering our buildings, everyone is asked to use hand sanitizer and to keep their distance at all times. No different than any other continuing operations, we are following CDC guidance and look forward to the day when these issues are behind us.
Our Human Resources department has been diligent in managing and tracking all employees who report any illness or symptoms. They are our heroes in helping to flatten the curve.
We want to thank Wayne, Twana Dave, Katie and Jay for their hard work and endless effort to help keep our campus clean and germ free! THANK YOU! They are part of the reason that PVS Metals, PVS Structures, MVS Metals, NPS Metals and NP Finishing have been able to keep operating for our critical infrastructure products and customers.
