In-Sink 2.0: The ‘new normal’ not so new for Mickey

Home » The Mickey Spirit » In-Sink 2.0: The ‘new normal’ not so new for Mickey

By Matt Sink, CEO

Matt Sink

The Covid-19 pandemic has certainly played no corporate favorites. Companies from coast to coast – from all over the world – and across all industries have been facing the same challenges since the virus first struck in 2019: human safety and wellness, work force shortages, supply chain and logistics issues, to name just a few.

A common thread among the companies that have managed most successfully through these tumultuous times is the presence of great teamwork. Teams, more than individuals, find solutions. They find answers. Teams accomplish wins – even small wins – every day amid tremendous adversity.

Teammates support and encourage one another, they inspire productivity and creativity. My father, Dean Sink, the Chairman of Mickey Truck Bodies, always said it’s not how hard you work that makes a difference, it’s how smart you work. Great teams work smart. Maybe it’s because of the combined brain power.

As an “essential business” we were able to remain open and to supply bodies and trailers to deliver food and beverages and batteries and propane gas and all kinds of consumer products. We were counted on to build and deliver ambulance bodies and emergency vehicles to a nation in dire need of this type of equipment. Our Fleet Services Centers stayed opened and fully staffed so we could make sure trucks would be repaired and remain in service to help keep the American economy moving forward. This is because of our commitment to teamwork, and to working smart.

And we have not worked through the pandemic challenges alone. We are grateful to our business partners – our exceptional customers and suppliers ­– who face the same business issues as us while we all work together, as a team, for the greater good.

People are talking about the “new normal,” or what life will be like in a post-pandemic world. For us, the “new normal” will be more of the same: teamwork.
