The Help You Need, NOW!

Every day seems to present a new challenge for manufacturers. At IMEC, we have launched several new ways to help Illinois manufacturers get the support and answers they need quickly.

Those resources include:

  • Illinois Manufacturing Helpline – Need quick, credible responses to urgent questions and concerns? Submit them to the Helpline and an expert will address your concern in as little as one business day!
  • Manufacturers Discussion Forum – An opportunity to share best practices and solutions with − and ask questions of − other leaders and experts who are experiencing and overcoming similar crisis-related challenges.
  • Supplier Preparedness Support – There are over 20 critical supplies needed to respond to COVID-19. If your company currently does or can quickly begin production, please let us know. This information will be shared with critical stakeholders such as the US Department of Commerce, DCEO, and the Illinois Manufacturers’ Association.
  • Match with a Supplier – Resource for companies experiencing supply chain disruptions and looking for suppliers to fill their needs.
  • Complimentary Webinars – The COVID-19 Response Webinar Series features sessions to help Illinois manufacturers address the challenges and concerns in this ever-changing situation. The featured topics are informed by questions submitted to the Illinois Manufacturing Helpline and feedback from manufacturers.
  • COVID-19 Blog Collection – Timely articles related to the best ways to respond COVID-19, written by IMEC experts and industry partners. Topics range from supply chain planning, cybersecurity, employment law, marketing, safety practices, tips and highlights from the Illinois Manufacturing Helpline, and more.
  • COVID-19 News & Updates Page – Updated resources, news, webinar downloads, and tools.

We encourage you to take advantage of these valuable resources and share them with your industry peers. IMEC has always stood for helping manufacturers overcome challenges and forge new paths to success. And, with this crisis on hand, we couldn’t be prouder to serve Illinois manufacturers.
