PPE Face Shield Milestone

How We’re Improving Point of Sale (POS) Safety
May 12, 2020


At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the global community and our local businesses faced a large number of unknowns. Like many businesses, our day to day operations have changed but our mission and values continue to remain the same. In order to combat COVID-19, Next Manufacturing shifted focus to producing personal protective equipment face shields for frontline and essential workers across North America. As a team, we set a goal to manufacture 5000 face shields for our essential workers and we are thrilled to say that with the help of our Additive Manufacturing community, we have exceeded our goal.

These unprecedented times have reminded us to be grateful for what we have and the importance of our Additive Manufacturing community. Without their help and support, our goal may not have been reached and the uncertainties formed from this pandemic would have been much greater.  We thank all of our partners for their dedication, assistance, and support, but would especially like to thank A.V. Gauge and Fixture.  A.V Gauge and Fixture generously donated their machine time, and employee labour to help us reach our target, which allowed us to keep up with the demand for face shields from the medical community.


As business begins to return to normal, we will continue to support our community by producing PPE for both the health care workers and the general public.
