The difficult time of coronavirus pandemic is motivating us to go beyond our competencies. At Nowy Styl, we are doing our best to support local healthcare services, hospitals and workers in the regions where we are present. Our French branch is one of the places where we have taken action to help medics.
Nowy Styl’s support for France in the fight against the coronavirus includes several measures. First of all, we have donated personal protection equipment for health professionals in the Noyon region, where one of our plants is located. It is estimated that a healthcare professional needs 10 aprons a day to be able to do their job well. Therefore, the materials we have donated include protective paper aprons and overalls, normally used by our painters.
Our tailors in France have started making protective face masks. We scrupulously follow all recommendations for the control of the virus infection every day. The face masks are intended to further raise the level of protection of our employees. Our tailors Rachida, Laurène and Gwenaëlle make 70 masks a day. We are also testing the production of protective caps and shoe covers.
In addition, our French branch has started using a 3D printer to make face shields. Since our in-house testing has been completed successfully, we have started delivering the face shields to hospitals in Compiègne and Noyon. The face shields will be delivered regularly every 2-3 days to equip the local medical staff efficiently and quickly.
We have also engaged our local network to follow the approach in partnership with Fablab, which has 3D printers. We have sent out our industrialization engineer to locally deploy the software on all of their 3D printers, so that they can be used to make and deliver the protective material for medical personnel.
We encourage everyone to help by downloading and sharing our non-copyrighted file which can be used on 3D printers (downloadable below). It complies with European standards and can be used to produce face shields which, hopefully, can help save lives.
Nowy Styl would like to take this opportunity to thank all our employees for their energy and solidarity shown every day, as well as all those who work for our common good.
