Owners of Connecticut small businesses brace for extended COVID-19 shutdowns they fear could kill their livelihoods The brunt of government orders to shut is falling hard on small, family-owned businesses. Many may never recover, even after the pandemic passes.
Operating in the manufacturing industry for nearly 60 years, The Sousa Corp takes pride in knowing we have supported our country in numerous international conflicts. However, today we are fighting a new, invisible enemy here at home. The Covid-19 outbreak is threatening the entire world.
We recently began heat treating medical components that are being used to fight the COVID-19 outbreak. And as always, we continue to process parts critical to national security & defense.
As an essential supplier of the Nation's Critical Supply Chain, The Sousa Corp will remain open, good health willing, through any Federal or State shutdown.
We wish good health to all!
