WHAT WE'RE DOINGJK Adams has retooled its facilities to produce personal protective equipment (PPE) in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. JK Adams is using its extensive collection of Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machinery, and sourcing knowledge, to aid in mitigating the shortage of PPE for healthcare workers and the public. The company believes this critical manufacturing will assist in the fight against the spread of COVID-19.
Notably, the JK Adams full face shield has received the stamp of approval from the University of Vermont's Medical Center for use in its healthcare setting. In addition, the company has received a bulk order from the State of Vermont-for its emergency service teams and first responders-and, a bulk order from the United States Air Force medical support team in New York City.
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)JK Adams is actively designing and producing products as part of a PPE line of goods. Our first product is our Full Face Shield-designed and made here in Vermont.
The full face shield will initially be sampled at no cost for any New England regional hospital or medical center who submits a request. JK Adams expects to be able to product 50,000+ units per week. The company's clear PET plastic full face shield, with the capability for name and department labeling, can be viewed at www.jkadams.com/product/ppe.
We expect to have a line of PPE products available to medical customers, and the general public.
