As the world continues to respond to COVID-19, Indium Corporation is doing its part to safeguard operations, protect essential workers, and reinvest in the local community.

The Pledge

Indium Corporation is very proud of The Pledge that we developed in collaboration with 16 other Central New York Manufacturers and the Manufacturers Association of Central New York (MACNY).

The manufacturer’s pledge, supported by a peer-to-peer review process, utilizes the collective skills and knowledge of the founding organizations, including experience from those who have overcome previous infectious episodes, like the SARS outbreak. This process also leverages safe practices and best practices from noted authorities, including WHO, the CDC, OSHA, EPA, and local Departments of Health.

Indium Corporation-Manufactured Hand Sanitizer

Indium Corporation successfully manufactured its own liquid hand sanitizer in early April 2020 to distribute among its employees. Noting the high demand within the community from other essential businesses, Indium Corporation made its hand sanitizer available to these neighboring businesses as well.

Food Pantry Donations

Local Food Bank Donations

Noting the increased community need for basic necessities due to so many individuals being out of work, Indium Corporation hosted a food drive at each of its five facilities in New York State. The response from employees was so great that donations of nonperishable food items were made in multiple rounds as the company continued its collection into June of 2020.

Donation recipients included Mother Mary’s Soup Kitchen in Utica, New York and Connected Community Schools in Rome, New York.
