Canadian Face Shield PPE Manufacturer is Ready to Help the COVID Crisis on a Global Scale

October 29, 2020 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Barrie, ON - Canada has entered the heart of the second wave of the COVID-19 crisis, while the US' cases continue to rise. This is placing more pressure than ever on our frontline workers, and unprecedented pressure on their employers to keep up with the growing demand for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

The innovators of the Shield-U face shield are pleased to announce that they are currently able to step up and supply any government or private sector organization that is currently struggling to outfit and protect their workforce.

"We currently have a supply of 2 million face shields, and we have the capacity to produce up to 5 million a month. If you have a PPE shortfall, or anticipate you will soon have one, we should talk as soon as possible," said David Yeaman, Co-Owner and President of Molded Precision Components.

The Shield-U face shield is a medical compliant device that is manufactured in an FDA registered facility through a partnership between Molded Precision Components (MPC) and Sterling Industries. They are already making a huge difference and will have sent over 27 million PPE face shields to Federal and Provincial government contracts by the end of the fall.

Shield-U face shields are based on 40 years of medical device success.

They are also:
  • ANSI Z87.1:2015 and CSA Z94.3:2020 Standards Compliant
  • Manufactured in an FDA/Health Canada Registered facility
  • ISO 13485:2016 certified
  • A one-size-fits-all solution that will comfortably fit anyone from a child to an adult
  • Suitable for all-day use
  • Allows for additional PPE (safety glasses, goggles, N95 masks, etc)
  • Fog-resistant
  • 100% recyclable

  • "Our face shields are available in high quantities and right now we're able to deliver them fast. This product can help a lot of people during these times of crisis, and we're looking for partners to help," said Andrew Bird, Director of Strategic Business Development at MPC.

    Any organization with an urgent, or pending, need for large quantities of PPE and face shields are invited to contact Mark Smith, VP Global Sales, MPC at
