A Sturgeon Bay business has gone from outdoor signage and flags to masks and gowns. FLS Banners made the transition earlier this week from trade show supplies to producing medical supplies to help with urgent needs for hospitals while still staying financially sustainable. Due to the cancellation of national trade shows and sporting events, which was FLS’s primary source of income, owner Cain Goettleman decisively acted on three fronts. He says his company’s experience in importing through a robust Asian supply-chain will allow the eventual production of NIOSH-Approved N95 masks very shortly. Secondly, Goettleman says his staff came up with a creative way to make level one medical gowns.
Thirdly, Goettleman adds that FLS Banners has already come up with 40 personalized mask designs to help overcome the perceived stigma of wearing a mask in the U.S while helping to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The multi-size masks are reversible and designed to contour-fit your face with a wire-bridge.
