NEW BEDFORD, WAREHAM, and ACUSHNET, MA, ISSUED NOVEMBER 6, 2020…NFI Corp. (www.nficorp.com), the global leader in high performing printed graphic solutions with a proven commitment to safety, in collaboration with Design Mark Industries (www.design-mark.com), a leader in customer manufacturing of graphic overlays and labels and an engineering-based, user-interface solutions provider, today donated 2,000 face shields to GiftsToGive (www.giftstogive.org) of Achushnet, Mass.
GiftsToGive is a completely volunteer-managed and -run organization with no payroll that gives young people from all backgrounds the opportunity to learn and understand through their doing, the power of giving, and service, which special focus on child poverty, literacy, and ensuring that children are connected with what they need both physically and mentally.
NFI Corp. and Design Mark Industries made the donation of 2,000 face shields earlier today. The companies began producing face shields under its new product category of Safety Gear in late March, when it pivoted its manufacturing production to augment safety gear desperately needed earlier on in the pandemic. In addition to face shields, social distancing floor decals and wall signs are now available.
The custom protective face shields are created from medical-grade glossy clear polyester and feature an adjustable head strap. The one-piece design is meant to add an additional level of safety for wearers.
Safety has always been a priority for Renaud Megard, president and CEO of NFI Corp., so it only made sense for the companies to shift production to these essential items in the spring. Originally directed toward healthcare and other essential workers, the Safety Gear line is now available for to the general public.
“GiftsToGive is an amazing organization making an enormously positive impact in our community – we are so grateful for their efforts and are happy to make this donation as a show of our appreciation for what they do, and provide them with equipment that will help keep their volunteers the people they work with safe,” said Megard.
