Allied Printing Services has found a way to manufacture PPE (personal protective equipment), specifically face shields, which they plan to donate to local hospitals to aid COVID-19 relief. It was important to Allied’s President, CEO and owner, John Sommers, to be a part of the solution in our collective response to this pandemic. Allied’s management team was able to quickly align the company’s resources and capabilities with a great need by converting manufacturing lines that normally are producing essential print, packaging, and direct mail to produce face shields which protect hospital workers and first responders.
“I am incredibly proud that Allied Printing Services has been able to react so quickly, and respond to this great need our country and state is facing”, said John Sommers. “As an essential business who is open during this crisis, our number one priority has been to keep our employees safe. We have been taking every precaution possible, and have been able to stay open to serve our customers. Allied is producing essential materials including important notices/communications for utilities and power companies, food and drug packaging, direct mail with personalized communications (PHI) for healthcare providers, Medicare ID cards, and components for COVID-19 test kits. As a key supplier for our customers in various essential categories, we know how important our work is; but, we wanted to do more to help those in need. I’m thrilled that we have found a way to produce PPE face shields to donate to local hospitals, ambulatory services, and other healthcare providers.”
