Digital Printing Company Donates Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Story Summary

Our new friends at Azul 3D generously donated over 2,000 face shields to our hospital system in July. These much needed face shields will help keep our patients, families and staff safe. CEO and Co-founder of Azul 3D, James Hedrick, shared why his company stepped up to help support organizations in need.

“For Azul 3D, it was about doing what is right and doing our part to help others in a time of great need. It was clear that there was, and continues to be, a demand that the global supply chain cannot meet. Our goal is to be a stop-gap for the current pandemic, while continuing to build up our manufacturing capabilities so that we can address future crises as called upon. While we wish we could do more, we are happy that we have been able to better protect thousands of healthcare workers across the country. It has also been great to see the community come together.”
