Panthera Dental is finalizing its assistance project for various Quebec hospitals in order to counter Covid-19, with a total delivery of more than 250,000 face shields. It is through the restructuring of production, the support of the community, the participation of several partners, and employees dedicated to the cause that the company greatly surpassed its initial production goal. Panthera will deliver its last face shields to the CHU de Québec in the next few days.
The project has allowed the company and its partners, such as Voxel Factory, Bodycad, Dicom and many more, to sustain employment for more than 100 families during this difficult period. In addition to 250,000 face shields supplied to hospitals, Panthera will have donated more than 3,000 face shields to non-profit organizations.
“The main goal of this project was to sustain as many jobs as possible in our great Panthera family. Our new headquarters’ factory, which is normally 100% automated, completely transformed itself to establish visor disinfection and assembly stations in order to respond to the urgent need for medical supplies. One thing is certain: Mission accomplished for our team and our partners!” says Gabriel Robichaud, CEO of Panthera Dental.
Now having a system in place for massive emergency production of medical supplies, the company says it is ready to respond to a call for assistance, once more, should a possible second wave occur, even though it is not a situation that is wished for.
