WMEP webinar to highlight manufacturing’s response to COVID-19

The Milwaukee manufacturing sector contracted in July

Madison-based WMEP Manufacturing Solutions is holding a webinar Thursday to discuss the results of its survey on how manufacturing companies have responded to the coronavirus.

The survey collected responses from more than 100 manufacturers in the state. The organization plans to repeat the survey on a regular basis to track changes in the industry’s response.

The webinar, set for 8 a.m., is intended to help companies better understand the impacts of the coronavirus and economic crisis on Wisconsin manufacturers, provide an idea of what actions companies are taking and offer a benchmark for businesses to compare themselves against.
