Versacarry Made PPE For COVID

Holster manufacturer Versacarry usually focuses on producing quality handgun holsters, belts and other on-body carry products, but these days they’ve got a new target: the global Coronavirus pandemic, also known as COVID-19. Although America has no shortage of brave first responders and health care workers, demand for personal protection equipment (PPE) such as face masks and face shields has skyrocketed right along with infection rates. In yet another example of the firearms industry pivoting to supply this lifesaving equipment in the face of the Coronavirus tragedy, Versacarry has converted its production facility from holster making to building those face shields and masks.

What’s more, they’re doing it at a remarkable rate. In less than a week, the Versacarry production capabilities were switched over, and shipping is happening very soon at the time of this writing. The company estimates that they will be able to produce a minimum of 20,000 each of face masks and face shields every week. These will be sent to the people who need them most.

“When I saw and heard numerous reports that there was a critical shortage of face shields and face masks for medical and emergency workers, I knew that was something we could help with. “said Justin Sitz, CEO/owner of Versacarry. “I redirected our development engineers from working on new products for the gun industry to develop products and production methods to produce these items critical for the health care and emergency response workers.”

Whether you want to learn more, or if you’d like to include your organization as a future recipient of these items, Versacarry would like to help. Click here and look for the yellow “contact us now” button
