COVID-19 has had a significant impact on Michigan manufacturing, forcing many to shift strategies to cope under crisis. The combination of supply chain issues, workforce concerns and reduction in orders created a “perfect storm.” Fortunately, many manufacturers are surviving the initial challenges through lines of credit, low interest loans and government programs such as the Paycheck Protection Program and Economic Injury Disaster Loans.
