BREAKING NEWS: CLAWGUARD shifts manufacturing efforts to help fill need for PPE amid COVID-19 pandemic
The pet products company is using its high-quality plastic to create reusable face shields for healthcare workers on the front lines
CHARLOTTE, NC — CLAWGUARD, a company that makes products that protect homes from pet damage, is joining the fight against the COVID-19 global pandemic. Beginning immediately, the Charlotte-based company is shifting its manufacturing priorities to focus on making protective face shields for healthcare workers on the front lines.
CLAWGUARD uses high-quality plastics in its line of protection products, which includes door shields, furniture protectors and more. Those plastics are well-suited to the development of personal protective equipment, which is in short supply in healthcare facilities across the U.S. So last week, CLAWGUARD founder and CEO, Kevin Dixon, began working with the company’s manufacturing partner to shift production to focus on protective face shields. CLAWGUARD has also ramped up capacity to produce up to 100,000 face shields a week.
“We heard the pleas for more PPE from hospitals, outpatient facilities, nursing homes and drive-by COVID-19 testing sites, and we wanted to help,” Dixon said in a statement. “We were in a particularly good position, too: Our plastics are high-quality. They can be sanitized and are approved for multiple uses. And that makes them an investment that will go the distance for healthcare workers.”
The face shields are cost-effective and will be available for rapid deployment. Within five days of an order, CLAWGUARD will be ready to ship them wherever they are needed throughout the U.S.
“At our core, we are a business that solves problems,” Dixon said. “It's what we do for our customers. Now, it's what we're doing for those on the frontlines of the fight against COVID-19.
