The Talk
At 2020's Midpoint, Taking Stock of an Unprecedented Year
By Eric Thompson

In a regular year, I travel quite a bit. As you might guess, this year has been different.

I’d last traveled in early March. When I finally took my first trip to Quanex headquarters from my home in Alabama in late June, I had the opportunity to reflect on how the pandemic has impacted our industry. I thought about where we collectively stand in our ability to find shared success throughout the remainder of the year.

It’s easy to start by considering what has changed in our industry in the past few months. There’s plenty. Shop floors have, of course, radically altered the way they operate with the implementation of new health and safety measures to stop viral spread. As an industry that strives to put safety first in all that we do, it’s been remarkable to witness this shift as everyone does their part to keep workers healthy while continuing to fulfill orders. My sense is that things will continue this way for a while. No organization wants to see their staff getting sick.
