200 Boxes of Face Shields Delivered to State Capitol Building
January 11, 2021, Columbia SC: To aid in reducing the spread of COVID-19, Columbia based digital manufacturer, ZVerse has donated 200 boxes of face shields to members and staff of the South Carolina House and Senate as lawmakers prepare for the start of the 2021 legislative session.
ZVerse is the creator of the nationally-recognized, American-made ZShield line of face shield products. The company donated two types of shields, the ZShield Wrap and ZShield Ultra models, which are designed for comfortable, all-day use. The ZShield Wrap uses an innovative, neck-mount design, while the ZShield Ultra offers a forehead-mount. Both are designed to be a comfortable, wearable barrier that helps shield your face, mouth, and eyes from the transfer of respiratory droplets.
“South Carolina, along with the rest of the country, is coping with the tragic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. It is vital for our legislators to continue to operate as normally as possible to lead us through this crucial time period in the pandemic response,” said ZVerse Founder and CEO John Carrington. “ZVerse saw the opportunity to further help the South Carolina House and Senate members and staff stay healthy by reducing the spread of COVID-19 through the use of our face shields. We were delighted to donate our face shields to assist in the effort to keep South Carolina moving forward.”
In March 2020, as the COVID-19 pandemic began to grip America, ZVerse saw the dire need to provide both frontline workers and citizens with safe and reliable personal protective equipment (PPE). Knowing that ZVerse had the processes, relationships and technology to accelerate mass production of PPE very quickly, ZVerse adapted their business model and within days began producing and distributing ZShields.
Since March, ZVerse has produced 4 million face shields, getting PPE products into the hands of the citizens who need them the most, quickly and efficiently.
