Youngstown, Ohio-based casino seating specialist Gasser Chair has unveiled its new virtual meetings programme. Casino Review caught up with the company’s business development manager Shawn Danks to discuss the initiative, along with how the firm has met the logistics and social distancing challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic in its day-to-day operations.
Casino Review: Gasser Chair has recently launched its new virtual meeting initiative, could you tell us a bit more about it?
Shawn Danks: Our mission has always been to offer products and services that exceed customer expectations. We do this by treating our customers like business partners and having thorough conversations to identify unique project needs and creating tailored solutions. With the current situation that is occurring around the globe we recognise that these types of meetings remain critical but cannot continue face-to-face. Our new virtual meeting programme offers customers the ability to request a digital presentation and continue having these crucial conversations. We want to make sure we are here for our customers when they need us.

CR: In terms of day-to-day operations, how has Gasser met the logistics and social distancing challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic?
SD: Several measures have been put in place for the safety of our employees, all of whom manufacture our chairs in the USA. Gasser employees that are able to work from home have been provided the means to do so.
For those employees that must be in the plant for production, we have implanted the following: All employees must wear masks in any shared space; staggered start times and break times; employee temperature check at the start of shifts; hygiene stations throughout the plant; and increased disinfection of the facilities.
Gasser has also partnered with a local manufacturer to produce face masks for local hospitals.
