Our company, WOODCHUCK USA, began making face shields in March 2020 to help protect our frontline medical professionals. Since then, we have received emails and calls from healthcare professionals & first responders all over the US who are in dire need of these face shields, but unfortunately don't have the budgeting or funds to cover the costs. With each donation, we can help get the face shields into more healthcare professionals hands to help fight COVID-19.
How Did We Get Involved?
Our first order was for 10,000 units, and came from a friend at 8pm on a Saturday. Our entire team did a 180 degree pivot from the custom wood products we were making, and stepped up to the opportunity to help. We all worked relentlessly to find distribution partners, enough real estate to assemble 300,000 units of face shields per day, and created over 450 jobs.
We scaled in the past month to becoming one of the largest face shield manufacturers in the United States. We’ve fulfilled millions of life saving units to our doctors, nurses, and healthcare professionals with tens of millions more on the way!
Working with vital partners
How did this little wood products company become a critical piece of the puzzle in getting health care providers across the US what they needed?
It’s simple. We have a world class team, we were all on the same ship, and we’re all headed in the same direction. We also had some world class partners step up and offer their services...
I’m proud to announce that we have become a 3M Preferred Converter. A status that only exists in the top 1% of 3M partners, and reserved for partners truly on the cutting edge of technology and manufacturing.
This incredible partnership has given us virtually limitless supply chain, and access to state of the art manufacturing processes.
More importantly, We’ll be able to deliver unlimited amounts of USA MADE medical supplies throughout this pandemic (And beyond).
Where do you step in?
By donating, you will help provide face shields to the healthcare professionals who do not have the funds to buy these, but desperately need them to continue their work to fight COVID-19.
Thank you for your generosity!
