We are undoubtedly in the fight of our lives right now. The devastation of the coronavirus has touched every person, every business, and every corner of the United States. It does not discriminate, play to party lines, or spare anyone, even if they are vital to keeping the rest of us healthy and safe.
It’s easy to feel powerless against something so invisible and so frightening, but if nothing else, we have our skills, our relationships, and the heart to take action for the greater good.
It is quite possibly all we need.
ZVerse is a digital manufacturing ecosystem that brings together makers with the designers, materials and manufacturers they need to bring their products to life with less friction and less waste. A few weeks back, we realized that we were unique in the world: We have the processes, relationships and technology to accelerate mass production of personal protective equipment (PPE) – specifically protective face shields – very quickly.
So, we played to our strengths, mobilizing our network of world-class industrial engineers and suppliers across the U.S. and choosing injection molding over 3D printing to achieve the scalability required for meeting the
demand of healthcare providers on the front lines. Today, we are producing 50,000 protective face shields a day, all designed, sourced and made in the USA.
