Geon executes Project Collaboration to help tank container firms in tough times
The company said that with this scheme other firms can take advantage of the intellectual and manufacturing expertise of Geon’s workforce to support the Covid-19 battle.
Over the next three months, Geon will offer its expertise, free of charge, to small and medium-sized companies that have issues meeting demand and barriers to get their virus-related products to market.
Tracy Garrison, Geon CEO, said: “Geon has the knowledge, the expertise and assets to help companies get products to market and make a significant impact on minimising the spread of the virus. Our team wants to do its part to support our communities in this time of dire need. Through Project Collaboration, we hope businesses can develop products more quickly and get them into the hands of those who need them most.”
Depending on the needs of the individual company, the project is expected to provide mould design support for healthcare and medical devices and global connectivity to several raw material suppliers, producers and manufacturers.
The project will also offer supply chain expertise to address the fast-changing environment and commercial guidance for the development of marketing and sales tools.
Geon Senior Vice-President and Chief Commercial Officer Larry Shaw added: “There are companies out there with great ideas but limited know-how to manage one or more aspects of the design, development, manufacturing or distribution process.”
