When PMM published the results of its first survey of machinery buying plans in January 2020, they remarked on the optimism reflected in the 60 percent of respondents. GTP's Jeff Ignatowski discusses the overall impact of COVID on Grand Traverse Plastics with PMM's Lynne Sherwin and how it has actually led to growth opportunities for GTP while struggling with extended equipment lead-times.
