Table game supplier TCSJohnHuxley has switched its production facility from manufacturing gaming equipment to produce disposable face shields for health care professionals on the front lines of the fight against Covid-19.
TCSJohnHuxley realigned the 3D printer at its Development Division in York, England to produce the much-needed plastic face shields for the National Health Service (NHS). It was anticipated the company would produce hundreds of shields over a span of weeks, filling the gap until larger manufacturers had injection-molded versions ready.
“I am proud of our product development team that highlighted we could pivot our manufacturing capability to produce much-needed (personal protective equipment),” said TCSJohnHuxley Executive Chairman Tristan Sjöberg. “We are very pleased to be able to contribute ever so slightly to keep the NHS heroes, who risk their lives on the line every day, a little bit safer.”
