After careful deliberation amid the developing COVID-19 situation, Michigan-based Pettibone/Traverse Lift, LLC has announced it will continue in-person operations for essential employees. On March 23, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer issued Executive Order 2020-21 (the Order) requiring that all non-essential businesses cease in-person activities. The Order includes an exception for operations employing “critical infrastructure workers.” Under the Order, Pettibone is an excepted business.
Pettibone is a manufacturer of products for the rail and construction industries, and the United States Department of Homeland Security’s National Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has designated such manufacturers as critical to the essential functions of the United States. Companies like Pettibone are part of a larger chain that is critical to many facets of our society and economy.
To that end, all production, aftermarket, and shipping employees have been designated critical infrastructure employees and will continue in-person operations. All other Pettibone employees will work remotely. With employee health and safety as its highest priority, Pettibone has taken a number of measures to encourage and enable safe work within the workplace and is following all CDC guidelines.
Pettibone/Traverse Lift, LLC is part of the Industrial Technologies Group, an affiliate of The Heico Companies. Founded in 1881, Pettibone has been recognized as the industry leader in material handling equipment since the company revolutionized the industry with the first forward-reaching, rough-terrain machines in the 1940s.
