Thank you! We can’t thank our healthcare workers and our manufacturers enough who are rising to the challenge during this unprecedented time. New North has been working with WEDC and the State Emergency Operation Center (SEOC) and local partners on how to match manufacturing capabilities with demand. Governor Evers launched the government donate/buy-back program. For inventory either as a manufacturer or distributor, please use the state provided link:

We realize that many manufacturers are already in the Healthcare PPE supply chain so thank you for continuing to increase production as you can to address this need.

Lastly and probably most challenging, is the group of manufacturers who’ve indicated a willingness/ability to retool. Wisconsin Center for Manufacturing & Productivity (WCMP) has prepared this LINK, with the vetting questions to get a sense of what companies are capable of and how quickly they can act. If you are a manufacturing company and have an interest in this, please complete the attached. This will go to WCMP’s system for further vetting to help in this retooling process.

Thank you to those in our Healthcare and Manufacturing industry. We need you now more than ever!
