MD Designs - COVID-19 UPDATE 4/30/20


A Letter from the President of MD Designs

Dear valued customer,
I hope this message finds you and your family safe and healthy during this most stressful time.
My name is Steve Arbuthnot and I am the President and CEO of MD Designs, Inc. For many decades we have been designing and fabricating products to provide recognition displays and signage to hospital systems, colleges and universities, not for profit organizations, businesses, families and individuals who have contributed to worthy projects across this great nation. We are located in Springfield, Illinois and our state is currently under a stay at home order that includes manufacturers like us. This order is set to expire on 5-30-2020. We are allowed to have some essential employees on site, but this does not include our employees who actually fabricate the donor displays and awards.  We are proud of the role we play in your endeavors and are frustrated, as you are, about the impact the pandemic is having on our ability to bring projects to fruition.
MD Designs, Inc is geographically located 200 miles southwest of Chicago and 90 miles northeast of St. Louis. We are hopeful that counties in central Illinois will be allowed to open before May 30th, and businesses like ours who have little day to day interaction with the public can commence activities. Our facility is quite large and can easily accommodate social distancing.
I realize this virus has affected you, our clients, just as significantly as our business. Please know how much we value your friendship and your business. Together we will get through this.

Be safe and take care.
Steve Arbuthnot
