Massachusetts manufacturers step up to meet emergency, look for opportunities in post-COVID-19 economy
Massachusetts manufacturers are making products to fight the novel coronavirus, save patients caught in its grip, protect doctors and nurses, and arrest the disease’s spread.

Sometimes it is a slight deviation from the norm. Universal Plastics in Holyoke is making face shields and acrylic intubation boxes.
