As we wind down the year, we would like to take a moment to reflect on the challenges and accomplishments of 2020. There is no doubt that 2020 will long be remembered for its unique difficulties – unforeseen health risks, a pause on travel and trade shows, and the sudden halt to everyday life. As we continue to persevere through this unprecedented time, we would like to extend our warmest thoughts to you and your family for a healthy, safe 2021. We look forward to continuing partnerships and reconnecting with colleagues in the new year.
Accuenergy Continues to Weather the Pandemic
2020 will be memorable for many reasons, not the least of which has been the COVID-19 pandemic and its immediate impact on countless lives. From the start, it was clear that in-person office environments would be disrupted as businesses suddenly closed and employees shifted to remote work. As a provider of equipment crucial to utilities, manufacturing, and defense, Accuenergy was fortunate to be deemed an essential service and has remained open for business during 2020. For the remainder of 2020 and into 2021, we will continue to monitor the situation and make informed choices to maintain the health and safety of employees and customers.
