Leadership in a Time of Crisis: National Marker Company

The recent COVID-19 pandemic brought on the fear of the unknown, opening concern and anxiety across our country. Safety was paramount and social distancing became new words in our vernacular. As the leader in the safety industry for over 86 years, NMC saw an opportunity to set the direction for new safety products that would facilitate new standards set by our government.

As a manufacturer of safety identification products, we understood the importance of implementing the clear guidance and instructions necessary to avoid confusion and conflict. Businesses and communities required a framework to direct their visitors and consumers on how to proceed in daily life as we adapt to this “new normal”.

I am incredibly proud of the NMC team for anticipating the needs of local businesses that are now responsible for implementing the guidelines set forth by state and federal leadership. The ability to pivot and collaborate as a team to generate COVID-19 safety ideas was truly remarkable. Their predictions for what small, medium, and large businesses would need provided a sense of relief for these entrepreneurs and their customers.

All around the country, businesses continue open to the next phase but with the same mantra we’ve had since Day 1, putting safety first. NMC is proud to be among other leading companies that share the same vision and motivation. It is our hope that we can all continue to support our local communities who have been impacted by this pandemic and help get our local and national economy back up and running.
