In this interview, Christie offers a closer look at what life is like for Vulcan employees at this unprecedented time, along with how keeping people safe and the factory open is a proactive, ongoing and collaborative effort. As for the current state of the factory and its surroundings, Christie has an optimistic outlook. “I would say overall right now it’s like a productive feel. We all want to see our economy succeed. Working in a manufacturing plant you hear it from people: they want to roll up their sleeves, do what’s necessary, and beat this thing — and keep their jobs and keep our customers happy,” she says.
