Plastic Folding Box Manufacturer Converts to Leading Face Shield Manufacturer

BURLINGTON, ON, June 19, 2020 /CNW/ - Printex Transparent Packaging, the largest clear folding box manufacturer in North America has re-tooled and has now become one of the region's leading face shield splash guard suppliers.  PTP with plants in NY and Montreal has shipped over ten million shields within the last 3 months providing desperately needed face shields to front line workers. "We have donated thousands and sold millions" said company president David Dennison. In addition to health care facilities, the company has shipped to Federal, State, and Provincial government agencies as well as food processors and industrial distributors.

"When the outbreak happened, we had the materials and the equipment to produce face shields, we just needed a good design. Within days, our designers in NY, Montreal and Burlington collaborated to come up with a great design that is efficient to produce using materials we already had in our manufacturing facilities. Our team met with potential users for initial feedback and within a week we were producing in NY and Montreal, shipping product across the US and Canada. Some being sold and some being donated."

The Printex Transparent Packaging shield and strap are a very economical disposable design, likely one of the most affordable disposable shields on the market. It is very lightweight and comfortable made entirely of recyclable materials. Line extensions now include shields for bump caps and hard hats as well as printing brand logos on the shield or head strap.

Subsequent to initially entering the safety shield market, producing its own design, the company has also been producing just the clear shield section for other manufacturers that provide their own head strap and assembly.
