In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, Federal Heath has announced the conversion of manufacturing capacity in order to build protective equipment for the medical industry.
“We understand the sacrifices and heroic efforts our doctors, nurses, medical staff and first responders are making in order to keep us safe,” said President and CEO Sid Rasnick. “We have teamed up with a health partner to manufacture and supply protective face shields in record time to the medical industry.”
The goal is to die-cut, assemble and ship 10,000 or more clear PETG masks per week for the next five weeks. Federal Heath will supply the manufacturing labor, the material by a vendor, and another partner will deliver units to places where they are needed most.
“Like most businesses and manufacturing facilities affected by the Covid-19 outbreak, Federal Heath understands the hardships our employees, valued customers and millions of people across the country are facing,” Rasnick said. “To that end, we at Federal Heath want to do our part to support the brave men and women on the frontline of this battle. We are proud of our employees who have volunteered for this project. We understand that we are all in this together and we will do whatever we can to help.”
Federal Heath will continue to practice and follow strict social distancing guidelines as put forth by the CDC, joining in nationwide efforts to protect both our employees and the public.
