Actuated Medical Face Shields Available to Veterans through GMP Partnership
The partnership brings together two diversity U.S. small businesses to offer an affordable, high quality face shield to U.S. Government. AMI, a certified woman-owned small business (WOSB), started manufacturing face shields to meet the growing demands for personal protective equipment (PPE) at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. The shields are more durable than typical disposable face shields, with some customers wearing the same face shield for more than five months. They also fog less compared to competitive shields.
"Being a small business, we're excited to partner with GMP to bring our face shields to more essential workers that require high quality lower fogging shields," said Maureen L. Mulvihill, PhD, AMI president and chief executive officer. "Our companies are well aligned to serve our U.S. heroes."
"GMP is proud to partner with Actuated Medical Inc, a certified WOSB," said Colice D. Powell, COL(R), USA, GMP Director of Business Development & Department of Defense. "AMI's products are made in the US and their best in class personal protective equipment (PPE) meets ANSI Z87.1 safety standards. We are excited to offer these superior products to our government customers."
Easy to clean, the shields are constructed with polycarbonate and have 5-year shelf life. All materials are sourced from U.S. companies and built in AMI's ISO 13485 certified, FDA-compliant facility in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania.
