Bauer plant has started making protective shields for first responders and nurses
- Canadian hockey equipment manufacturer Bauer is offering to modify its production line to make protective visors for doctors, nurses and first responders.
- The protective equipment to help deal with the COVID-19 pandemic would be produced at the company’s site in Blainville, Que.
- Bauer’s vice-president of products, Dan Bourgeois, says he has already received calls from Montreal police, firefighters and hospitals interested in the products.
- Bourgeois says the company decided to adapt its hockey visor production after hearing Premier François Legault say manufacturers in Quebec could have a role to play if supplies of protective equipment run low.
The proposed full-face visors are made of plastic and contain anti-fogging material.
- With non-essential businesses ordered closed in Quebec, the company is awaiting authorization from the provincial government before going into production.
- Anybody would love to rock this Bauer during this pandemic.
- Thank you Bauer for stepping up.
