AtlasIED Manufactures and Donates 26,000 PPE Face Shields Across the U.S. | #TpromoCom #COVID19 #FirstResponder #Audio | AtlasIED is doing its part to protect the well-being of medical personnel by manufacturing and distributing thousands of units of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) Face Shields free of charge to hospitals, triage centers, nursing homes, and other medical facilities nationwide, as well as local emergency responders, fire departments and police departments.
Nearly 1,200 orders have been filled since assembly and distribution of the personal protection equipment began on April 10 at AtlasIED’s Ennis, Texas, manufacturing facility. Support will be ongoing, as AtlasIED has enough material to produce as many as 26,000 shields.
The manufacture and distribution of the face shields was a huge undertaking that involved the modification of AtlasIED’s existing assembly line, sourcing of materials, programming of a laser cutting machine, reallocation of bandwidth and employees, implementing a dust-free environment to keep the shields clean, and developing an online request form.
“In these uncertain times, AtlasIED felt it necessary to do what it could to ensure the safety of the nation’s healthcare workers,” says AtlasIED President John Ivey. “Through the commitment of our employees, we were able to execute timely development and distribution of face shields to medical facilities throughout the country. At the same time, we are able to keep everyone at the manufacturing facility fully employed.”
