The Power of Network Collaboration in the Midst of Florence

Working together to minimize disruptions and job lead times, we have implemented measures including moving certain jobs around the Partner Network.

By Shilpa Garg · September 13, 2018

With Hurricane Florence quickly approaching the East Coast and about to make landfall in North Carolina, we’re working hard with our manufacturing partner network to minimize order disruptions.

Our operations team has identified fewer than 100 active jobs that may be impacted by the storm and proactively reached out to those partners to assess the situation. Working together to minimize disruptions and job lead times, we have implemented measures including moving certain jobs around the Partner Network. 

We will closely monitor the situation and respond accordingly through this weekend. A big thank you to all the members of our manufacturing network for working together with us during this time and demonstrating the power of the network. Stay safe and please don’t hesitate to reach us at support@xometry.com and 240-252-1138.
