Rapid Creation Of 360,000 Face Shields
Eaton supported Ohio medical workers by using its manufacturing expertise to fulfill an order for the rapid production of 360,000 reusable face shields to fight against the coronavirus.
Eaton recently collaborated with multiple hospitals, state agencies and a local custom plastic injection molding company to rapidly produce the critical equipment at scale.
“Ten business days ago, this project was just a concept. Today, we’re moving forward with production and looking to expand further,” said Michael Regelski, senior vice president and chief technology officer, Electrical Sector at Eaton in a statement in April. “By leveraging our advanced manufacturing capabilities and strong network of partners, we’re helping Ohio quickly respond to current inventory challenges and maximize accessibility of critical personal protective equipment resources for front line teams combatting COVID-19.”
