BURNSVILLE, MINN. – On April 6, under 24 hours, SnowWolf had converted one of its snowplow attachment assembly plants to support the COVID-19 relief effort.
In partnership with Fastbeds, a manufacturer of emergency field hospital beds, SnowWolf began assembling, packaging and shipping beds to the front lines of the fight against COVID-19. Fastbeds’ mission is to provide a quick relief solution to hospitals and care centers suffering from accommodation difficulties.
At first thought, there aren’t many similarities between assembling snowplows and steel-framed field hospital beds. But, SnowWolf’s assembly line was a shoo-in fit. Overhead cranes do the heavy lifting, and purpose-built rolling snowplow assembly fixtures provided an immediate, safe and efficient solution for the high demand production requirements.
“It’s inspiring and fascinating! Just two short days ago, I had never considered anything but snow removal products coming off these assembly lines,” SnowWolf Co-CEO Mark Holman said.
In every company meeting and on the walls in the facilities, it proclaims, “We are obsessed with creating better futures for those around us by crafting revolutionary solutions that customers love.”
“During this pandemic, I can’t think of a better way to create better futures for those around us than by committing our space, time and resources to help those most in need,” said Jerry Holman SnowWolf Co-CEO. “To see our team instantly rally around this cause is one of the most meaningful moments of my lifetime.”
