dlhBOWLES is considered to be part of critical industries based on our country’s Defense Production Act (DPA). Specifically working with FEMA, MEMA, DHS and other agencies and companies who direct us to remain open for production. Given this, we have asserted critical and essential status and invoke exceptions to any enforced shutdowns by our local or federal government.
On March 27, 2020, dlhBOWLES entered into a supply agreement with General Motors (GM) to produce parts for the Ventec VOCSN Ventilator. We will remain open for business throughout the COVID-19 crisis at all locations in North America in order to work closely with GM on this project as well as to provide critical parts for the trucking/transportation, military, agriculture, and medical device industries. As part of the Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce our employees and facilities may be operating and working despite local or federal shutdowns.
Should there be any question regarding dlhBOWLES’ status as a critical and essential manufacturer, please refer to the Department of Homeland Security website or contact a member of our leadership team.
