On Friday, 3/20/20, Deere & Co. announced they were continuing operations, with some changes, as the company was labeled essential critical infrastructure this week by the US Department of Homeland Security and President Donald Trump.

The statement said "Keeping farmers and those involved in infrastructure and energy production up and running is essential to food production and our ability to support critical infrastructure needs."

GGM directly supports John Deere, and other companies who in turn, support farmers, energy producers and the construction industries.

As such, GENERAL GRIND AND MACHINE is considered essential and will continue operations to support our customers. Team Members need to report to work at the start of their designated shift. While Illinois Governor Pritzker has issued a "Shelter in Place" order, people with jobs considered essential are allowed to work outside of their home.

As previously communicated, if you are sick or experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19, please stay home and follow the normal call-in reporting procedure.
