NEW DELHI, April 30, 2020: Amidst the shortage of PPE equipment during the global pandemic, KARAM, India’s leading Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) manufacturing company has started manufacturing medical face shields to offer protection to healthcare workers treating Covid-19 patients. The company has been manufacturing around 10,000 face shields on a daily basis and is looking at ramping up the production in the days to come.
This is the company’s second initiative to provide support to the healthcare workers through safety products amid the ongoing situation. Earlier this month, they had partnered with the Government of India to manufacture protective goggles for doctors and the police workforce across the country. Till date, KARAM has manufactured around 4.5 lakhs goggles that have been distributed across the stakeholders.
Commenting on the announcement, Sandeep Arora, National Sales Head, KARAM Industries said, “We are currently facing an acute shortage of PPE equipment for healthcare workers who are risking their lives for the country. While several companies are trying to make these products, getting regulatory approvals continues to be a challenge. Being a PPE manufacturer, we use authentic materials for each of our PPE products, including goggles & face shields and ensure that the entire product range meets the global quality standard. As a purpose driven organisation, we will continue to lend support in every way possible and help overcome this battle.”
