As the world continues to struggle through the COVID-19 outbreak, the supply and distribution of Personal Protective Equipment to some industries and market segments remains erratic. With a clear need for effective safety equipment and a self-imposed mandate to help, the executive leadership team at Grote Industries decided to do something about it.
