Shifting production to face shields
The CNC machines that we'd typically use to build cabinets and speakers has been adjusted to produce large quantities of clear face shields, which have rapidly become essential protective gear. Teams in both our East Providence and West Warwick stores are working around the clock to produce approximately 800 shields per day.
Our face shields can be assembled in about 15 seconds on site with no tools needed and are durable, shatter proof and reusable (with proper sanitization and for single person use, of course). They can be stored and shipped flat so they are easy to manage and store. We have procured enough materials to make about 8000 units in this first production run. We are going to keep making them until the need is not there, we run out of materials or money.
