    [Case Study] Reyes Automotive Group

    When COVID-19 and government stay-at-home orders swept across the U.S., Reyes Automotive Group, an on-site supplier for Toyota Motor Manufacturing and SWBC client, was put in a tough position when automotive manufacturing essentially came to a halt.

    Meanwhile, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) was in short supply across the nation, leaving first responders and front-line healthcare workers without the critical equipment they needed to treat the sick. Reyes Automotive Group saw this as an opportunity to leverage their team members’ skillset and their manufacturing facilities to serve the local community by producing medical face shields, while putting their team members back to work.

    “We found a product that we were able to mass produce very rapidly,” said Jason Reyes, President of Reyes Automotive Group. Within 24 hours, they were able to create a prototype. Then, utilizing their supply chain knowledge, they scaled up production of medical face shields from a few hundred per day to more than 25,000 face shields per day. However, pivoting from producing automotive parts to medical face shields meant their commercial insurance coverage needed to be adjusted.
