With early school closures, educational facility retrofits and renovations have been bumped up, bringing school safety back into the conversation in a real tangible way as we produce and fill orders.
From the Fabricator: Being Ready
By Max Perilstein
So many times, I hear “Well as soon as things change we’ll push more, we’ll go then,” and that attitude is chasing the wave, instead of being on top of it. The play should be: Be ready. Stay ready.
