Brian talks about how DeRoyal Industries has changed to meet new demands for facial protection and other personal protection equipment needs at the epicenters of the COVID-19 epidemic. 

DeRoyal has also just reprogrammed 1,200 surgical wound care devices to become portable suction devices for use in makeshift hospitals.

"We’ve set up manufacturing cells in 2 different states to make these face shields. We need to be making 40,000 to 60,000 per week, but we also have an automation team with our engineers working on accelerating that process being able to make face shields in a more automated way as well."
