We are open for business!

To Mate’s Valued Customers,

Since our last update, Mate has closely followed the developments surrounding the continued spread of COVID-19. More state governors have issued or extended executive orders for citizens to stay-in-place to combat the virus. In fact, Minnesota Governor Tim Walz just extended our state’s stay-in-place order until May 5.

In this current environment, we are guided by our responsibility to our employees’ and our customers’ safety. Mate is following the hygiene, social distancing and cleaning recommendations published by the Center for Disease Control, as well as limiting access to our facility. Employees who can work remotely are doing so.

Mate is also guided by our responsibility to our customers who rely on us to maintain their critical operations. We are open for business, making the tooling customers need to build the products necessary to help people recover and other critical items. In just the past few weeks, we have helped customers that build machines for rapid COVID tests, produce ventilator components and make the critically important metal tab used on N95 face masks. They have thanked us for our dedication and responsiveness, including producing the required tooling in record time.

We know that production challenges exist in all manufacturing settings, and Mate continues to assist all our customers, whether in person or remotely. Despite travel restrictions and remote work, we can still help and support your projects and fabrication challenges via MS Teams, Facetime or the technology of your choice. While we’re working differently, our high expectations for customer service have not diminished.

Although the times are unprecedented, it gives me a tremendous sense of pride, purpose and gratitude to thank our employees whose continued dedication is helping to keep the economy moving.

Wishing the highest safety and health for you, your families and your businesses.

Stay safe.

 

Sincerely,

 

Kevin Nicholson
