Disc Makers Pivots To Manufacturing Face Shields In Response To COVID-19 Crisis
Disc Makers, the CD, vinyl and physical goods manufacturer popular with DIY and indie musicians has pivoted to making protective face shields in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
Disc Makers saw normal demand drop and heard of the shortages in medical supplies quickly pivoted to making protective face shields for medical testing and other uses.
“We are used to making stuff. There’s a crying need in the country for protective gear, and face shields were the quickest item we could ramp up to make,” states company CEO Tony van Veen. “Our manufacturing team is shifting over to full-time production. It’s the right thing to do for our community, and our staff is eager to help out in any way they can during this turbulent moment in our country’s history.”
Disc Makers’ face shields, which will be assembled and packaged in its Pennsauken, NJ facility, is shipping its initial model now and expects to continue to evolve product design and selection depending on demand.
