Jamestown Plastics Pivots Production In Response To COVID-19 Crisis

first_imgImage by the County of Chautauqua Industrial Development Agency.BROCTON — A northern Chautauqua County based manufacture has adjusted its production in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.Jamestown Plastics’ owner Jay Baker, says his team has begun work designing face shields for the health care and emergency response industries.Rather than simply copy the style of face shields that have been around for decades, Baker says his company will be constructing an original design.“Innovation is hardwired into how we approach life here, and none of it would be possible without our ‘Jamestown Plastics Family’ of incredible employees who know going above and beyond is in all of our job descriptions,” said Baker. The TrueHero™ Extreme Coverage Face Shields, produced by the company, will first be deployed to a medical office in Mayville.Constructed of Clearon™, a medical grade, PETG plastic, the face shields offer exceptional visual clarity, explained Baker.Additionally, the reinforced shield features a proprietary flanged edge that, unlike flat shields, maximizes protection from the periphery. Multi-Port Exhaust channels release heat and moisture, yet preclude the entry of germs.The shield offers full-range view ability, is extremely lightweight, and easily grasped from behind to satisfy handling protocol. It attaches with an infinitely adjustable hook-and-loop strap for all-day comfort, and a foam forehead pad enhances comfort. The shield can be customized by simply trimming the material with scissors.Locally, the Chautauqua County and the County of Chautauqua Industrial Development Agency have led the charge in communicating the need for additional PPE production countywide, encouraging manufacturers to retool, where able, to produce supplies needed for COVID-19 pandemic response.The team created a logistics plan to fulfill the 14,000 face shields needed locally, followed by order coordination for the additional 59 statewide emergency operations centers.
