SKB Continues Essential Operations
Amid COVID-19 Fight
Case maker will prioritize solutions for medical and emergency management fields.
LEADING CASE MAKER SKB, which manufactures products for healthcare, electronics, and industrial applications as well as the music industry, will remain operational through the global pandemic to meet demand for essential emergency response equipment and supplies. A statement from the company noted that SKB operations fall under the Department of Homeland Security CISA Critical Manufacturing Sector.
As the preferred manufacturer of cases for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), as well as integral medical technology companies and military institutions, SKB has adapted its day-to-day operations to accommodate these mission-critical commitments. FEMA uses SKB cases to house critical gear for deployment into disaster areas, while medical technology companies use SKB cases to safely house equipment used for test diagnostics and by first responders. Among many other applications, SKB cases are also used to transport the light bars used in portable tent hospitals, giving doctors the light they need to perform critical care.
"We are proud that we are able to contribute
to the national effort
to keep this country and its citizens safe."
“Our cases give medical professionals, firefighters, and emergency response personnel protection for the equipment they need to fight this pandemic,” said Steve Kottman, SKB Corporation CEO. “We are proud that we are able to contribute to the national effort to keep this country and its citizens safe. We are currently receiving expedited delivery requests on many specific products directly related to fighting COVID-19. Those orders will take priority.”
SKB Corporation will continue to monitor the global situation, accommodating its operations as necessary while following guidance from local government and the Centers for Disease Control.
