With Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) still in high demand, Therma-Tron-X in Sturgeon Bay teamed up with their employees during their off-hours to make face shield designed to protect medical personnel at Door County Medical Center. Therma-Tron-X is a heat processing equipment manufacturer. Amy Barnard, the director of IT, explains the materials that go into making the face shields.
Therma-Tron-X owner Brad Andrae says the custom-made shields have been well-received.
Therma-Tron-X sends boxes of 50 shield kits home with employees for assembly. Barnard reports that, as of this Thursday, 483 shields are at the hospital with another 302 that are waiting to go. She estimates that there are enough kits at home with TTX employees to hit a total of 1,000 by next Monday.
