At MORGAN Li, we’ve always prioritized collaborating with our partners to find custom solutions for different opportunities and business challenges. Today, this is more important and relevant than ever. In response to the pandemic, we’ve adapted our capabilities to provide immediate solutions that will help our clients open their businesses while ensuring the well-being of their employees and customers.
As the pandemic swept across the country, my brother Jonathan and I recognized that there was an opportunity to quickly pivot our services and offerings to include social distancing essentials for businesses like grocery stores, pharmacies, retailers, hotels, banks and more. These products, which span from safety shields to floor decals and hands-free door openers, are available in a variety of sizes and colors and may be customized to fit specific needs. Earlier this month, we launched our direct-to-consumer e-commerce site so we may cater to customers in need of a quick turnaround with solutions that are in stock and ready to ship within 24 to 48 hours.
We also proudly partnered with Pillar Booth, a Chicago startup which makes soundproof phone booths for office spaces, to manufacture “protect booths” to provide a solution that protects healthcare workers when testing patients for coronavirus.
Innovation and expansion will always remain a top priority for us at MORGAN Li, along with our ability to be nimble and quickly pivot to offer new capabilities to meet the demand of everchanging needs.
