“Our first quarter was one of the most unusual, ever! Our primary objective was to protect our employees from the threats the pathogen posed by creating safe workplaces, our second objective was to operate our facilities efficiently in this environment of extreme government induced uncertainty, and our third objective was to confirm, by account, that product produced would be sold” said Dr. Michael J. Hartnett, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “I am very pleased with the results and thank all our employees for their support and goodwill on behalf of RBC Bearings during this challenging period for everyone”.
