We wanted to take a moment and share our new COVID-19 resource site launched yesterday specifically for manufacturers/distributors - Plante Moran - M&D COVID-19 Resource Center. The intent of the site is to help companies navigate through what we see as the critical phases most companies are facing: 1) Response; 2) Restart; and 3) Plan for the future.
Below is a roadmap of the site – this should allow you to find the information most relevant to you.


  • There are 6 areas – 1) Customer Relationships and Demand; 2) Cybersecurity; 3) Liquidity; 4) Leadership; 5) Supply Chain and Operations; and 6) IT – that you can choose from and will allow you to assess your preparedness or current plan in the respective area.



  • Submit your contact information along with the area(s) of interest and one of our management consultants in those areas will contact you.
