What is the Cook County COVID-19 Recovery: Manufacturing Concierge Program?   

Manufacturing as been identified as a key sector at risk for job loss due to COVID-19.  As a result, this program has been design to assist with a robust recovery. 

To help manufacturers:

  • Connect to training for operations in COVID environment
  • Assist with increased needs for digitalization
  • Develop and diversify supply chains

Many manufacturers were unprepared for the disruption of supply chain relationships as a result of reliance on supply chain optimization to minimize costs and reduce inventories. Additionally, some manufacturers lack visibility into their entire supply chain and don’t have enough lead time to mitigate disruptions when they occur. 

We are in the pre-launch phase of this program and will post more details as they become available.
