St. Louis, Mo. – May 1st, 2020
Trade Shows and events across the globe have been impacted drastically due to the COVID-19 pandemic and with virtually no revenue, Gateway Exhibit Services, a trade show and event company, had to think fast and pivot to sustain its business.
With the excitement and concerns surrounding the re-opening of restaurants, shopping centers and other workplaces, the remaining staff at Gateway developed multiple designs for plexiglass shields for all types of applications. Gateway Exhibits is equipped with a full-service custom fabrication shop which is aiding in the production of these barriers.
Since the pandemic, Gateway had to lay off nearly 70 percent of its staff in efforts to stay open until business starts back up. With this new revenue stream, Gateway’s management is hopeful to bring back as many employees as they can to support their customers.
A beloved local business, Clementine’s Naughty & Nice Creamery, was one of the first businesses to receive barriers from Gateway.
“When I learned Gateway was providing these plexiglass shields for restaurants and retail, I jumped at the opportunity to get my order placed,” Tamara Keefe, Owner of Clemintine’s said. “We have several locations locally, which needed standard and custom size shields installed. Gateway quickly listened and answered my business needs flawlessly. Not only do these shields provide a sense of comfort for my employees, but they also help protect our customers.”
Gateway is offering a standard and custom sizes that can be quickly available for businesses with an immediate need. Not only is Gateway offering counter and desktop shields, but they also developed a rolling plexiglass shield that is perfect for restaurants, bars, and several other industries.
In addition to the PowerPlex defense barriers, Gateway is ramping up the production of social distancing communication banners, floor decals, and other graphics. In conjunction with these efforts to support the reopening of businesses, Gateway’s sister company Closed Loop Recycling is committed to keeping stock of sanitation supplies like hand sanitizer, plexiglass cleaner and other industrial cleaning products.
