Since March, this Covid-19 pandemic has changed the way we do business, and in many ways, the landscape of our country has become unrecognizable. Five months later, and many people are still unemployed, while small companies continue to struggle.

    Fortunately, SpaceGuard Products has been blessed. We have remained in business and, thankfully, have not laid off any employees.

    “And, to show our appreciation, we gifted four 3×5 plexiglass partitions on wheels to our friends at Special Dogs and More in Columbus, Indiana,” said Eddie Murphy, President of SpaceGuard Products. “We did this to help them increase their seating capacity, which has caused business to be turned away from this amazing restaurant.”

    These partitions offer adequate protection for social distancing, and customers are encouraged to draw on them as well with dry-erase markers. Children are in love with the idea!

    “The partitions are helping. We have had more people eat inside this past week than in weeks before. Customers are taking advantage of the dry erase markers and drawing some awesome pictures on the boards, which is pretty cool.”—Special Dogs Facebook Post

    Special Dogs and More opened in October 2017 with the mission to “employ and train those with mental, intellectual, and developmental disabilities.” Their goal is to help those who have been described as unemployable become employable, all while providing the best hotdogs, burgers, tenderloins, and corndogs around. And we believe they are accomplishing their mission!

    Recently, the restaurant had its bi-annual health inspection and was told by the health inspector they are doing everything right. They provide face shields for employees and offer the right amount of seating based on social distancing and the size of their restaurant. Oh, and by the way—the health inspector loved the plexiglass partitions!

    When you’re ready to dine in a restaurant again, keep Special Dogs and More in mind. They will be prepared to serve you with a smile, and don’t forget while you’re there to draw a picture for them on the plexiglass partitions. Also, they offer outside seating and take-out as well.

    With our constant need for instant gratification, the way the world buys products is constantly changing. From downloading books directly to a Kindle or an iPad to Amazon testing drones to deliver goods within 20-minutes of ordering online in the UK, consumer expectations are evolving. We want what we want, and we want it now.

    But how does this impact warehouses and manufacturing plants?

    Currently, scientists have not been able to create more hours in the day – although who knows what the future holds. Remember the day when pausing live TV didn’t exist?

    Even on slow days, warehouses and manufacturing plants are active and dynamic places. With the demand for next-day deliveries, the focus on moving products in and out has never been greater.

    Order pickers, AGV’s, forklifts, and heavy moving equipment, continually transport products from one location to another throughout the warehouse and storage rack systems. Employees concentrate on picking orders and don’t necessarily pay attention to their surroundings, creating potential hazards.
