Hopefully one of the positives that will emerge from the coronavirus pandemic is a new spirit of collaboration and innovation that will allow us to use the technology we’ve developed for the greater good. Many individuals are doing what they can to try to help neighbors during this period of quarantines and social isolation. Businesses as well are stepping up their efforts to meet supply gaps we may have anticipated but not planned for.
One of these is Visual Communications Company (VCC), a recognized global leader in the illuminated electronics market with advanced indication and HMI solutions.
