SnowWolf recently converted one of its snowplow attachment assembly plants in Burnsville, Minn., to support the COVID-19 relief effort in less than a day.

In partnership with Fastbeds, a manufacturer of Emergency Field Hospital Beds, SnowWolf began assembling, packaging and shipping beds to the frontlines of the fight against COVID-19. Fastbeds’ mission is to provide a quick relief solution to hospitals and care centers suffering from accommodation difficulties. From this one facility, thousands of beds were assembled and delivered to health care facilities across the U.S.

There aren’t many similarities between assembling snowplows and steel-framed field hospital beds, but overhead cranes do the heavy lifting, and purpose-built rolling snowplow assembly fixtures provided an immediate, safe and efficient solution for the high demand production requirements, the company said.

“During this pandemic, I can’t think of a better way to create better futures for those around us than by committing our space, time and resources to help those most in need,” said Jerry Holman SnowWolf Co-CEO. “To see our team instantly rally around this cause is one of the most meaningful moments of my lifetime.”
