Productive Plastics Is Now Manufacturing Face Shields for PPE Use
Date:5/27/2020

Productive Plastics, a leading heavy gauge plastic thermoforming contract manufacturer, announces that it is now manufacturing face shields to be used as personal protective equipment (PPE) to combat the spread of the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19. These face shields are single use, made to be worn by frontline healthcare professionals and for any essential professional (retail, grocery, food service, delivery) where personal interaction is necessary. All Productive Plastics face shields are proudly manufactured in the USA.

Productive Plastics' face shield has an innovative design that maximizes protection, freedom of head movement, and comfort. Utilizing its over 65 years of plastic and manufacturing expertise, with assistance from various industry business partners, Productive Plastics was able to dedicate a portion of its existing manufacturing operation to begin producing a very high quality face shield at a cost competitive with both foreign and domestic suppliers. With the addition of new machinery and an anticipated hiring of a 10-15% increase in their workforce, Productive Plastics is estimating the production of 5,000 to 10,000 face shields per day to meet the high demand for PPE. Initial production runs will be donated to local hospitals, first responders, and other essential employees.

"We recognized that with our existing manufacturing expertise and resources we are in a unique position to serve our community in a time of need, especially the healthcare and essential professionals, by manufacturing these face shields," said Hal Gilham, CEO of Productive Plastics. “We are extremely proud not only to be part of the solution in the response to this pandemic, but to also be able to offer employment to some of the people in other industries that were displaced by the economic effects of these challenging times.”

Features and benefits of Productive Plastics face shields include:

  • Reduced risk of exposure- extended forehead and side shielding provides full face protection, further reducing the risk of exposure from respiratory droplets
  • Greater freedom of movement - contoured design avoids impact with shoulders and chest
  • Spacious design - easily fits over other commonly used mouth and eye PPE
  • Increased visibility - anti-fog coating available
  • Lightweight and comfortable fit
  • Proudly made in the USA

Productive Plastics face shields are offered for sales in bulk quantities to hospitals and other medical, dental, or clinical businesses, as well as to distributors and companies in need of PPE. The minimum order quantity is 1,000. To inquire specifically about this product, please email: faceshields@productiveplastics.com.

Productive Plastics will continue to seek for new ways to bring its resources and expertise to bear in support of its valued customers, frontline heroes, and other communities in need during this challenging time.

The Productive Plastics Face Shield is authorized by the FDA under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for use by healthcare providers as PPE and is only authorized for the duration of the EUA unless authorization is terminated or revoked sooner. This product has not yet been FDA cleared or approved. Body contacting materials include latex free elastic band, open cell foam padding, and PET visor.
