Whenever New Year’s Eve comes around, people expect a year of change ahead and hope it brings success in all aspects of life. However, things took an unexpected turn when 2020 brought in several twists early on—the most prominent being the global pandemic.
Everything escalated when the pandemic reached every corner of the world, forcing governments to resort to quarantines and lockdowns. Businesses were greatly affected, and the worldwide economy began to spiral down. Companies, both big and small, had to change their plans. Among the businesses that were severely affected was Gunther Gabbert.
Gunther hails from Texas and studied Associate of Arts in Marketing before getting a Bachelor’s degree in Sustainability Studies. He would go on to run MB Coffee Group and Lumen Direct. And like everyone else, the business was disrupted.
There were suspected cases of COVID-19 in the country beginning as early as January. The first documented case in Texas occurred in February before the pandemic began to sweep them by March. During July, the cases began to increase, and the death rate more than doubled in Texas.
Over those months, Gunther stayed updated and watched the news. While the country was advised to stay indoors to prevent spreading and contracting the virus, he felt he could do something worthwhile to help flatten the curve. Gunther and several other companies decided to start a company called Fast Response Unit.
First Response Unit is a conglomerate of companies that work towards the goal of helping people and companies toward their goals. They consist of companies located around the globe, namely China, the United States, Brazil, Mexico, and Canada. Together they offer fast solutions to urgent needs.
The company’s goal is to provide the best products for their clients. Because of the rising cases, people and companies have been hoarding equipment and reselling them for a higher price. First Response Unit is motivated to prevent price gouging. While other people and companies have taken advantage of their resources for rich quick schemes, First Response Unit is looking to strengthen their relationships rather than gaining monetary profit.
First Response Unit always searches for the best option by having a team of experts work around the clock. These experts ensure the goods comply with specific quality control, on-time shipping, clear customs and arrive safely to their destination. First Response Unit makes it a point to turn projects into reality, from origin to final port. They are currently helping Latin America secure large amounts of testing from reliable and reputable sources.
They are directed by Gunther, Ricardo Gomez, Fabian Gonzalez, Dario Sotomayor, and Josue Roman. As a unit, their team includes factories, customs agents, manufacturing team, air & sea logistics, executive & political consultants, and quality inspection teams all over the globe, among others.
First Response Unit has successfully sourced personal protective equipment for governments and large companies. However, they continue to work with the hopes of other large organizations and governments working with them for better pricing and logistics for everyone.
