Sandy Alexander Inc., a printing service provider headquartered in Clifton, N.J., has converted to manufacturing face shields in all facilities as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“In an effort to assist with safety of first responders and medical professionals and due to the immediate lack of supply the Sandy Alexander team created  a process in which we can easily supply face shields to those in need,” the company said. “These shields meet ANSI Z87.1 for splash protection, can be wiped down using disinfecting wipes or alcohol pads to be reused or disposed of, whichever the user prefers.”

The company said it can produce up to 5,000 plastic shields per day. Each shield is fastened with an adjustable head strap with Velcro fastener for easy size adjustment and a comfort fit foam band on the forehead, the company added.

Sandy Alexander has manufacturing sites at its HQ in Clifton, as well as in Florida and the Los Angeles metropolitan area. All facilities can produce face shields and are being supplied with the appropriate materials at this time.

“Once [we] found out we could manufacture our own shields with our current equipment, we set up a supply chain for the plastic and immediately began production and hope our national footprint can help us get these shields to first responders quickly,” Sandy Alexander’s president and CEO Mike Graff said.
