Microforum is making PPE to help with COVID-19 efforts The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all aspects of daily life. At Microforum, as with many other businesses, it has changed the way our company operates. Staff that can work remotely have shifted to working from home, visitor limitations have been put in place, additional sanitation stations have been set up through our 60,000 square foot facility, and our staff has been supplied with Personal Protective Equipment.
As news of shortages of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) began to surface, governments at all levels sent out pleas for local manufacturers to help out. Our team decided that we could help by re-tooling parts of our operations to help meet much-needed demand. Our designers immediately started designing PPE. In a matter of weeks, we began manufacturing our first PPE product, the Microforum Face Shield. Microforum sent its Face Shield plans to Health Canada for expedited approval through the Interim Order process and received a Class 1 device license for the Microforum Face Shield.
Now, our face shields are helping to protect other front line workers.
If you or your loved ones work in the front lines - medical, transportation, food services, cleaning services, or any other essential service - we would like to send you a heartfelt THANK YOU! And, we want you to know that we are working as quickly as we can to help protect you.
