Cutting PPE at SCS Interiors (video)

On March 20, an SCS employee sent a news story to our Director of HR about a local hospital requesting home-sewn face masks to help meet the high-volume needs of hospital workers. At that moment, we started thinking critically – how could we contribute during COVID 19?

We quickly sent out a message to our local hospitals, Essentia & St. Luke’s, offering our services if they were needed.

The next day we learned Frost River, another local manufacturing company, had taken up the PPE (personal protective equipment) initiative in full force and was off and running sourcing materials, planning production, and had distribution covered. Not only were face masks in need, but face shields too.

SCS Interiors transitioned to a supportive role in their operation, offering our assistance in any way we could. As a critical manufacturing company for the aerospace industry, our plate was already full. But our team was willing to go above and beyond to help. 

Saturday, April 5th, we met up with the folks at Frost River and grabbed some materials to take back to our shop. In just over a day, we were able to cut enough plastic for almost 7000 face shields and about 12,000 pieces of elastic. Huge thanks to Justin, Corey, Mike & Jen for volunteering your time. These parts were delivered to our friends at Cirrus this week for final assembly. We are thankful to play a small part in this community operation (shout out to Aerostitch, too, who gave up some parts to get Frost River’s cutting table back up and running). It truly takes a village.

We’re willing and able to help on the next opportunity. If anyone out there has a bulk supply of material that could be used for creating masks or shields or other PPE, please reach out! We can create a pattern on our Gerber CNC cutting table and produce thousands of pieces in a relatively short amount of time. We could also gather some volunteers to do some sewing, too! Again, if cutting material is slowing you down, please connect with us. We want to help.

Give us a call at 218-728-1614 or email us at info@scs-interiors.com.

Stay safe everyone!

Customer Testimonials

Just wanted to say thanks for the great work in getting a carpet kit for my Cessna 182D with a Selkirk interior completed. You guys were awesome to work with, and the carpet fits perfectly! ~Chris L.

I have received the carpet in Oshkosh on time. I am very happy with the quality and I will definitely recommend you to my pilot friends. Your customer service is fantastic! Thanks from a happy customer in Munich, Germany. Thomas

Impeccable service… Great to deal with an obviously professional company. I am an extremely happy customer and would be definitely doing business with you again and will be highly recommending you to my fellow pilots here at my club. David

I bought a floor mat and the quality was terrific. It’s difficult to know your quality via the website. The floor mat is a secret weapon. Shocking how it awakens a midlife interior into something fresh. It completely covers the most worn portion of the existing carpet. David

We received the floor mat today, and we are thrilled! Thank you and your team for fixing this for us so quickly. It is in better shape than before the tear. You exemplify customer service, and we are proud to have your product in our airplane. Thank you again! Cory

Hi Mike, Just wanted to follow up regarding the interior. It looks fantastic! If any prospective customers would like a reference, feel free to have them contact me. It was an absolute pleasure working with you! Thanks, Tom

Your firm is focused on producing a top quality product that meets or exceeds the customer's expectations. SCS keeps in personal contact with the customer to make sure that the customer is absolutely getting what they want. -Mike

I’ve got to be honest with you Mike, that embroidery and the blue thread you picked looks FANTASTIC!!! WOW! You guys did a great job. –Steve

Thank you, both so much for the beautiful job you did installing the new headliner in my 1967 Buick Skylark. We already showed it off at a car show and had inquiries as to who installed it. Also, thank you for replacing the rear, passenger interior light lens. That was a very pleasant surprise. It meant a lot to me that you took the time and expense to do that, and you wouldn’t charge me for it. –Kathy

Mike is very responsive as we had a couple of suggestions which he incorporated within 24 hours and had our covers back to us overnight. I hope he sells a ton of them because he deserves the business. –Tom

Just thought I would let you know we picked up our Eclipse yesterday and installed the carpet runner and seat covers! Super job! They are all perfect and love the way the 4 seat configuration turned out. -Shari

… Just to say thanks for my floor mats for my PA28 Archers –they all fit perfectly and look great! –Derick

The mats are installed and look great, fit is perfect. … I flew some passengers last week who commented on how great they look. –Tom

received the carpet for the Matrix. …they are great and fit perfectly -Carlos

...and just to let everyone know, you can't go wrong with SCS Interiors. I know several of us have their mats and have been really happy. I had some problems developing on the border of one of the wing mats and a tear from the grips on the passenger side front mat. I sent them both back to SCS when the plane was in for annual, and they were back and completely restored way before the plane was done. And the work was done at no cost, which in today's world is unheard of. The quality is great, the customer service is even better. I can't think of another investment that has done so much to help keep my wings and interior looking brand new. -Steve M.

…the floor mats arrived, and I gave them to Jason last week. He was very pleased with the finished product. I appreciate all of your hard work and efforts to get the logo worked out with him. –Marcia

Just wanted to let you know that the front and rear mats fit perfectly for my Arrow. Thanks again for your great service. -Cary
