As the global COVID-19 pandemic grows, Andersen’s Research, Development and Innovation team has added a new focus: designing, developing and manufacturing critical PPE (personal protective equipment) to support frontline workers’ efforts to fight the virus in our communities. Andersen will donate over 50,000 face shields to help protect health-care professionals and first responders working on the frontlines. The company is also providing 100,000 face shield components which will be donated to organizations that require critical parts to complete their face shield designs.
